    Hey sewNso, are you by any chance lefthanded??? I would do like everyone else says and wait. My sister would have cut the same direction as you. She has a hard time doing things often that go diff directions. But I love her anyways and she's a pretty good piecer upper. Off to bed; the dog is "ruffing" at me.

    hey, Chef, I'm left handed! I still do mine the way the picture said! Don't be picking on us....we're the only ones in our right minds!

    I have to say that I am really enjoying this mystery quilt my first and can't wait to see the end result. I have used colours I would not have put together but I like them so much I have bought more for my stash and am already thinking of what to put with them. I will definitely be in for the next mystery ride. I thank Judy so much for all the work she has put into this project and the help given so freely. Its great to read everyones posts and get to know the personalities. I'm so glad I found this board!
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    If you flip them over will they be going the right way? OK I also am left handed and I thought my angles were going the wrong way so I turned it upside down and it is the same! Not sure if this is what you are talking about. a picture works best for me.

    I am upset with myself because I let my fabrics migrate! I had two picked out for E and F, but some how they ended up being B and D, I ended up with enough D but the B fabric I am about 10 inches short! And I can't find any more...

    Soooo I have to rethink here. I am going to wait and see how it develops and hopefully I can pick a substitute fabric with out having to start all over again!
    One great thing about quilting is eventually even mistakes can be turned into great finished projects! Headed to the Bar Car!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Heheheheeee I wasn't picking on the lefties LOL For the longest time my sis struggled with cutting until I changed her blade to the "left" side. She was trying so hard to use her right hand. Took both of us to "get the light blub lit" and swap it over. Mercy sakes perhaps mine are cut to the wrong direction. Now I have to look

    no, i'm not left handed. just picked up the fabric and started the quilt yesterday. my 3 yr old granddaughter needs a quilt for her 'youth' bed. and i've thought and thought, and couldn't come up with anything i thought was 'neat'. nothing sparked my interest.
    intended to do the mystery quilt, but kept doing other stuff. so sunday morning i decided, that's what i would do for her. so went shopping in my stash, and started cutting. by 7:30 that nite, i was just toooooo tired. so started making mistakes. Ya know?

    I have enough material of each, so this morning, i think i will just redo the lst batch. i had already cut and sewed them together. will use them somewhere else in something else.
    do we sew the next two batches of strips in clue 843, like we were SUPPOSE to sew the lst one?

    I think that happens to all of us at some point!
    If memory serves me correct, yes, you are correct on that clue.

    Well, I did get my strips cut on Saturday but not sewn together. But I did pack them in my luggage so will try to do them while on family visit. Hopefully next weeks clue will use these pieces and I can also do it from afar.

    I also went back and had to label my fabric for this one. I guess we were all just anxious to jump in and start. I love the looks of all the fabrics coming together.

    I think my diagonal strips may be the mirror image also. I hope that is okay.

    I only finished half of step 4 last night. My F fabric was unwashed and it's black/white. The color catcher was very dark so I'm glad I washed it. I have a A strip leftover from the other set. Hmm. The b/w is inexpensive fabric and was very crooked, but it's straightened out now. I am wrestling a 5.5 yd piece for these little strips.

    I have a chart now, too, so I'm off to see how much damage I can do.

    Another vote for the mystery of this one. I like my black w/red roses so much, I can hardly wait to see what you have in mind for them, Judy. Thank you for doing this.

    Ok, do I understand this right - you say your 45 degree angle is opposite from what my picture shows? If so, turn your cutting borard around and re-line your strip set. Did that work? If not, you can cut from the other way as long as you msew and cut your other stirp sets the same way. Or am I not understanding your question?

    sorry to be sooo dumb.

    Oh, too too funny -- that would be a blast, wouldn't it?
    No, probably not - I'd probably have people outside my house with guns and sticks, ready to beat me sensless.


    also, look at quilt patterns all you want, I don't think you will find this one, I made it up.

This one sure has everyone guessing, I even tried to cheat and look at some of the other quilt patterns to see if I could figure it out. Nope there was nothing of the sort. Oh, was that cheating, I did not see that rule in the instructions sheet. Sorry. Back to quilting.

    ALSO - just thought of this - if you are left handed, just cut from the right side of your cutting mat instead of the left.

    I think Judy said so long as all of yours are all cut the same way everything will be ok.

    Mystery Train Material

    This is what I am working with. When you come to my house you will read my sign before entering my house. Criticising my quilting is not allowed. I am not very good at picking out colors for quilting yet.

    Why on earth would anyone criticise you here? Some of us posted possible colour combinations and asked for feedback, but that isn't criticism. Your colours reflect your taste and so are always perfect!
