    Wow, Judy. Even from up here in the observation car, I had no idea what was coming. Beautiful. Can't wait to see all the train quilts. I did the first one but haven't been able to do the last two rides. Maybe next one, if you have the stamina for another one, Judy. One thing I really love about the mystery quilts is that it makes me realize that even a complicated design can be broken into steps we all can do.

    I know where Hamilton Montana is ! Welcome aboard. My sister in law and brother in law and all of there kids live there. What a small world. Have been there several times. Love your fabric choices appeals to my girl side Love your cat we have 2 lovely fur balls that share our home but not my sewing space as they like to steal things off my sewing table and I never see them again.

    Judy, Judy, Judy thank you soooooo much for your time and sharing your talent with us. This is my first Mystery quilt ever and I cannot wait for the next one in February. You are very nice to do this for us. Thank you all for the food, drinks, and deserts. I will be getting off the train when it stops in Michigan, then the long walk home.

    So by tomorrow all of you will have this completed right? I will be the one slowly coming in last place! I have all the pieces now to start the sewing them together part. That is not a one day job I am fearing. Maybe by Tuesday with any luck then the quilting begins.. now that is a much longer process. Judy thanks for teaching us week by week and the comment about breaking things down so they are not too complicated is correct. I have long looked at an irish chain quilt with admiration but said oh he..heck? no! and now I will have done it. TADA! hope it looks as good as yours does. Everyone remember to post so the slower of us can keep inspired. Thanks again. WAIT WAIT

    A toast to our conductor, on the house! everyone join hands and sing .. something! Sure hope the train is ready to take off on a new adventure shortly!

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

    Hi Christine! Yes, small world, huh? We came from Washington and absolutely love it here in the Bitterroot Valley. Thankfully, my cats don't take my stuff (yet?). I'm going through a pink/white shabby chic phase right now; hope this color scheme works. I think I might have needed one of my 'darks' darker, we'll see.

    Judy, I love it! I am debating on finishing like you did two smaller quilts for two twins I know, who just happen to have a Dec 22 birthday! Feel sorry for their mom, not only Christmas to deal with but TWO Birthdays!

    Hey Linda-Brat, Darling girl it is not a contest to see who can do it the fastest! So allow your self to relax and finish at your leisure! It is my OCD that makes me do stuff as fast as possible, but I am going to allow myself to take it easy on this one!

    I am going to put a few blocks together because I am "curious as all get out" to see the results! But the rest is going to wait! Hummmm, maybe I should send to you to finish for me ...

    I just love the train rides, your ability to keep us all guessing Judy is amazing!


    Blessings, Marybeth

    Well, I worked on mine this afternoon & got the 4 corners done. Now to assemble the blocks, rows & quilt. Will do rest of assembly tomorrow. This is coming out just awesome! Even the stripes came out looking good!
    Judy, while I was sewing, a thought crossed my mind...last mystery turned out to be a carpenter star, this one an irish chain variation. It's real funny, both were patterns I had just finished for longarm classes! Let's see.....what class am I going to take around about February so that you'll do a variation of that one too!

    You guys are soooo great! thank you for all the nice things you have said. But I really enjoy designing a quilt and making it come alive. All of you are so supportive and I appreciate you overlooking a few boo boos when I was sick.

    The blocks posted look great, can't wait to see the rest of them. As you earlier had been posting the pieces made, and I see your collections of pieces, knowing you didn't know what you were going to do with them, I could see how they were going to turn out, and I hoped you all would be pleased with them. I don't think there is going to be an ugly one in the bunch!

    frustrated..... My cat would steal the bobbins and bat them around. Unbeknownst to me, she got the thread wrapped around her tongue. After a trip to the vet and surgery to make sure that she had not swallowed any pins or needles, she could no longer go into my sewing room. (spoiled the fun for the other kitties, lol) They do love to help us don't they!!!!

    They used to steal my thread and have it all over the house and I am also missing 2 seam rippers anything that rolls they take and hide under my oak buffet and we do not move it out very often because I would have to unloaded it and even then it weighs like two hundred pounds. Sorry to hear your kitty had to go to the hospital
