    ShiAnnF, I can so totally identify with having trouble picking out colors for a quilt. I always feel so lame because I just think everything goes together and the sometimes I am shocked when I get it done and I don't really like it. But then after a little bit it grows on me and I think that it's ok and not so bad after all. I think we criticize ourselves more harshly then anyone here would ever do. I have tried using the color wheel and I still mess up. So what I have been doing is going with colors that come in a set from a designer. LOL. Not much imagination there I guess.
    But I don't think you ever have to worry about anyone here ever saying anything bad about the colors we pick. I think that when YOu get your's put together you will see how wonderful it looks. I like the sunny colors.

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.
    I need a picture of that cake, I am trying to imagine it but dont't see the wings? But it all sounds so yummy. I love the lemon with coconut and raspberry jelly! Now I am really hungry!

    Jaba/Jan I love your sub-fabric, it really looks good with the original. I got my step finished and used the new fabric for the two triple strips, and I had enough of the original for the 4.5 strips. I don't have a picture but will get a camera before I finish this quilt!

    I actually have quite a bit of leftover fabric for all except the B and D fabrics. I either had more than I needed or bought extra. So if I want I can make something to match my quilt.

    I have part of Clue 6 done. Will do the other half when we get home on Monday. We're heading out for Texas this morning to spend Thanksgiving with my relatives. I would bring it with me to work on at Mom's, but I have a quilt that needs to be finished by Nov 30 and will be working on that instead.

    Almost done with Clue 6. Just a bit more cutting to do. The "black" is a mottled deep evergreen. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    shi, and urg, i'm terrible with colors also. i mean i could/have matched some awful colors at times. my solution was to just go with the ones in a multicolor fabric. i'll pulll the colors out of it, and or match with white.
    or, i know fall colors, or go with variations of the same color. trying to remember that i'm using either bold colors, or subdued colors. one or the other.

    And of course, you can copy someones color combinations that you have seen that look nice together.

    All finished and ready for the next step. Since I will be working Fri, Sat and Sun not sure when I will get to work on the next clue. Maybe not until Mon (if my grandson naps) or Tue AM before going to work.

    I am so curious to see how these quilts will go together as many of them seem like two separate quilts. So I am totally excited to see all of you finish.

    I am slowing getting caught up. I have all my 1/2 square triangles made and squared up, all my nine-patches made and all 3 diagonal stips made. Hopefully tonite and tomorrow, I can get the last clue done. Then I need to get some stuff ready for a workshop on Monday. I made a jelly roll race for the base of one project, but need to add borders on to it. I will try to post some pictures on Saturday.

    I love seeing everyones progress. The combinations are just amazing. One of the reasons I love taking workshops is seeing what the rest of the class does with the same pattern.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. Dungeonquilter, you're further than I am. I'm ready to start my diagonal strips. I'd like to be caught up by Saturday. I need to stay out of the dining car eating holiday yummies and sew. I dropped off pumpkin pie and apple bars for dessert.

    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! What a wonderful day it is! And I am so glad to have so much to be thankful for!

    I am being thankful for my wonderful hubby and going to watch football instead of sew! Well for at least part of the day!

    OK, did anyone else feel like today was Saturday? Where is my clue... LOL....


    I am actually thinking seriously about going shopping tomorrow.

    1. I am not a "Shopper" normally I hate it.
    2. Crowds really bug me, I hate getting bounced and pushed by strangers!
    3. Do I really Need it?
    4. I could stay home and sew!
    5. I hate driving in busy traffic especially in the parking lots where people make up their own rules.

    But... man some of the sales are really tempting, fabric for $3.00 a yard! Designer fabrics! Oh Posh, I don't need it! Dang but what a deal~ Feel free to step in at any time and tell me you views!

    Hummmm, I think this argument might go on for quite a while. I will let you know what side wins.... My main focus is getting a new camera, but I am searching on line too!

    Ok you all are great photographers. I suck. I had to steal one battery from the tv to get the camera to start but it wouldnt show the screen. I got one pic before it died out again. This is it. What it doesnt show is the strips from this weeks clue that are all finished too! ahh. but the concept of the colors is there and I am doing it! as of last week I was ready to quit hadnt even made my nine patch til last Sunday and now.. getting there. I will be able to finish I hope. I seem to have tons of the four abcd fabrics just a bit of the white and purple left but almost identical substitute fabrics to fill in for sashing etc if large pieces will be needed. tada! and I love it too seeing how we all take one project and how completely different it looks just by changing the colors up.

    Everyone second guesses their color choices. and it is hard to see the final picture sometimes when you get started on a project but like this one that 45 degree angle strip really showcased how your colors will do together over all. I love it. and these are all fabrics I was gifted and had no clue how to use.

    I would say you are coming along really good. Love your colors. Of all the fabric's show I do not think I have seen two alike, interesting.

    Yes, Shi, I too think it is so interesting how different all the combos look. I know a few people dropped out because they didn't like having to choose 6 fabrics without knowing how it would go together, but I think that these quilts are all going to be eye popping gorgeous!

    Now, I'm off to try and accomplish something physical and get rid of the calories I stuffed myself with yesterday -- the first time my DD had made turkey-day dinner and it was great!

    See you all tomorrow morning, and have a good day! Me, I stay home on Black Friday for all of Marytoddliz's reasons.

    I hate stores on a normal basis going when there are a million people? oh he.. no. Stuff will always be available and at some point it will all be on sale and that is good to go for me. Buy it online, avoid idiots, horrible parking lots and the rush to get the next best thing. OH NO. shutter at the thought.

    I almost couldnt join because of the bigger size pieces but it worked. And there are a lot of colors I prefer more colors in a quilt then just a couple. I love it! I would chose so many of the quilts being made here. I have many favorites for sure. I checked out another mystery quilt being posted recently but couldnt do that one because of the tools needed to make it. I really truly enjoy this quilt Judy. It been so fun and everyone is so great at posting their updates that its inspiration to keep going and see what comes of this. It will not be a UFO like so many other.

    Jan that switch is perfect to go with the quilt. I think it looks like you meant to use them. I am using another purple for the next need of F fabric as I think I will be short but its so good of a match it is fine.

    Happy eat left overs day everyone!

    Well I am still in my Jammies and have been shopping right along~ on the internet! found a great camera, but think it was one of those lost leaders that pull you in and they have 3 of them for sale, with a bizillion people wanting to buy them!

    So still no camera, and the best part of shopping on line today is most shipping charges are free! If I was going to go shopping today I would go to Joann's I received some great coupons!
