    WebCam picture may not show it well but the colors match very nice, the one does have a floral in it but I am hoping it will blend nicely, because I am not Frogging those puppies!

    and ShiAnnF I like your selection of fabrics! There are not quilting police here, (I am so glad, I would go to cut off corner jail for sure!) but if you ask for help it will be given! Judy is the best because she just gives us advice on how well the overall picture will look...


    But if you are interested there is an Ugly Fabric SWAP, where if you got stuck with fabric you don't like you get to trade~ sight unseen of course~ with someone else's Ugly Fabric... and the funny thing is most people got fabric they really liked, so Beauty is often times in the beholder!

    thx for the suggests today ladies. i could read what you wrote, but for some reason the laptop i have in the basement next to the sewing machine won't let me log in on the quilting board. i keep getting invalid user name or password. even tho, i take my time, and do them real careful. so i just look at pic's, and read, don't get to chat.

    i did redo that lst strip that i did wrong. no biggie. probably those long pieces are going to be the border. so thus, slants , the different way, would not matter. but , i like for my quilts to look like they should. and sometimes, just a different slant, might not catch the eye, or make it look wrong.
    i am working on the last clue., but quit tonite before i was ready to crash. off tomorrow afternoon to take my husband in for an outpatient procedure, so i have several 'jane' blocks to hand sew, while i sit and wait. suppose to take a couple hrs, before he gets into recovery. soooo, i wanted to get as much done as i could, before i had to start spending more time taking care of my ole' sweetie. 47 yrs, and counting with him.
    i am really enjoying this mystery quilt. it'll be fun to see how it turns out. thanks for the train ride judy.

    Puh-leese! Some of us on this train are just a bit goofy (but just a little bit), so no one would ever think to criticize another person traveling with us. That's just nuts. We're all friends here. Besides, I like your color combos so much, maybe I'll trade mine for yours. They are cheerful. That's what I like. Nice job. And you are way ahead of me. Still struggling with those blasted strips. You rock!

    I am too much of a perfectionist. That is why I say do not criticize my quilting, so I am kind of kidding. Thank you for the kind words on my color matches. You raised my confidence

    Yes I love the little red clips they are so handy. I love your colors, they look so bright, when I first saw them I said W O W. Thank you for the compliments.

    So, Judy, not trying to cheat (much) or anything, but is it possible to get the amount of each fabric we should have left for the next clue? Today the drivers were NUTS. So if I need more fabric (there isn't much left of a couple of them), I'll be out braving the crazy drivers anyway and would go see if the LQS has any fabric left.

    Sunliten, Your notebook is a good idea...then I'd probably forget where I put it. :-)
    Marybeth, those fabrics are hard to tell apart. Nice match.
    SewNso, good luck with the hubby and the outpatient procedure. Let us know how it goes.

    OK...I think I'll try #843 and see how much I can goof it up!

    I forgot to say the material that looks black is not black, but a dark, green. Old Age, forgetfulness, mistakes, no not me just, oh I forgot what I was going to say. he, he.

    I am planning to, the past two years I planned to go and my Mom got ill and I had to go to Oregon, so I will keep my fingers Crossed! She has COPD and my sister lives near her but when my sister goes on Vacation I get to go to Oregon to help with Mom. But we have invited Mom down for Christmas, so I figure all she really wants to do is see us! Took care of that problem!

    But I want to go to the show in Glendale? My Quilting group is going to a lot of shows in 2013 I am sure we will have a chance to meet at at least one of the shows!

    Coopah, the only thing you will need fabric for is a thin sashing.

    HEY dont forget me! I have been waiting and waiting for my fabric to arrive and finally went with what I have. pray with me that its enough I have now done the nine patch and have my strips cut for the 45 degree cut strips. just have to sew them. I have tomorrow to get caught up to work on this weeks clue! I am 'clueless' on what the final product will be. i keep guessing then second guessing. It sure is fun however. I will happily jump on another train. I like that this was user friendly judy. One that is simple enough all can play. Not a lot of points!! I dread points. Thanks for keeping us guessing

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    YAY!! I can do that!! I made a couple of "boo boo" cuts and was hoping there would be enough left for the next step. Thanks, Judy! Now I can get home more quickly today and not have to go far on this crazy shopping weekend. Thanks for your help.

    You don't need to be good, you just need to have fun. And besides, who decides what is good, is there a "good choice" police out there, lol, just have fun with it all.

    Good morning, y'all. The rocking motion of the train made me sleep in. I'm almost finished with step 4, so I'm getting caught up. I messed up cutting a Spicy Spiral and it's not going together right. I'm glad it's not my first so - I'd have been frustrated if it were. Now I'll just put it together and see if I can salvage it.

    There's a breakfast casserole made with canned biscuits and mimosas in the dining car for brunch Enjoy.

    Yep, there are "good choice" police. They are elementary school teachers (I was one) who always ask (after a child was naughty or mean) if they made a "good choice." So they're out there, but just not on this Board, thank goodness. Hee hee!!
    SewNso, Judy said we just need enough for a binding. :-)
    Sunliten, not sure how many more clues, but you're pretty organized, so whatever you say is probably right. And today I'm doing the long strips and will work at clue 6 later today. Doing a bit of ripping, though. But the SUN is out. Yippee! For awhile, I thought I was back in Seattle.

    I made it, I am all done until this coming Saturday!! I can hardly wait to see what the next clue will be. We are so close to being done & I have not a clue how this will be going together. That's the FUN part!! Here is my picture so far.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

    Ok, I made some Australian goodies for all to enjoy. One is an Angel cake thing. Of course it is not angel food cake but what it is is a yellow cake mix that you cut up into squares. Then you cut the squares in half and put whip cream on it. Then you cut the other half in half and set it on the square so it looks like wings. It is very yummy. Then I made some Lemmingtons. I think I am spelling it wrong. It is another cake cut up into squares. You can have lemon filling in the middle and then the top has a red frosting covered with coconut shreaded on it. You can also put raspberry jelly in the middle. So hope you all enjoy them. they are in the dessert car. Oh an I also made everyone a flat white coffee. The closest thing in America might be a latte. It is very yummy and that is coming from a non coffee drinker. LOL. Enjoy. I love to see what you all are doing....all the colors. I want to do this when I come home...so I may not look at the last clue. Hmmmmm but then I probably will because I won't be able to wait to see how all of you put it together.
    PS I forgot they are ready for afternoon tea.
