    These are looking so pretty!
    Have gotten way behind due to other projects taking precedence. Have the strips cut for the diagonal border but not yet stitched together. And have not even cut the strips/squares for the next set. But once I get birthdays and Christmas situated will get back to it. Love how its coming together.
    Everybody keep posting your pictures!

    Judy, I'm a bit late, but wanted to say thank you for the wonderful ride. I've got all the pieces sewn together but not yet into the top. These darn Christmas projects keep getting in the way! But you did a wonderful job of keeping it a mystery and it is a lovely design. This is my second mystery train ride and am looking forward to any other you plan. Maybe early next year?

    Jaba, I can't explain how it happened but the fabric I originally picked out as E and F somehow became B and and D, and seriously I like it better this way! I ended up having to match and fudge a little but I am amazed how well it is turning out! I wish I had more time to sew for me! It would be finished, but the show must go on! LOL

    Linda suggested that I need to take a break... When I woke up this morning I felt the pain right through my shoulder blades! URG...It is seriously time to slow down and go for a run! So I am going to interrupt my day and go hit the road!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Jaba, leave it be. I love the way the darks spring forward and the more subtle blues hang back a bit. The eyes moved quite nicely. I really really like it. Still working on mine. Had to take a break. Back is a bit stiff today. A lot of great rain all day. We've had so many fires. This will knock them down for a couple weeks.

    Just sew it together, Jaba. It will be wonderful! I can't get my last squares together. It will probably get finished in January. AI YAI YAI!!

    Jaba you asked here it is. Yup your correct its sorta not working. the two little quilts sounds good but WHAT if you did one with only the teal and one with only the pink and added a block of solid of another third color you like, use that to do the small sash.. and add another bigger sash of one of the two you have and do as you suggested to me, save the border for another project. BUT this way you get two big quilts will still get the irish chain affect to some extent just not the crossing over of another chain.. it would work totally. Boy its hard to admit I was wrong .. crud I hate that! mine might all in the boat of what contrast the darker color works great but one set of those hst's is sorta just sitting there not popping. JUDY next time stop being so nice lol KIDDING you can hit me over the head with a honey NO anytime you think its necessary. Better earlier being whacked upside the head than standing back and saying oh H...l no a day late kinda thing. its ok to say that with me HONESTLY. even if you think you have to send a private PM really. so Jan maybe we can interchange some of our blocks and it will work! darn didnt think so but I also have lots of two fabrics left so I can add that solid block if I need to and I have a solid alternate that would work too! yipppeee. sewing this afternoon and we will find out for sure. crossing fingers. And thanks for being brave enough to post Jan. I know it was the last thing you wanted to do. what the heck they serve cocktails in this train car who is pouring? And you have another one you made too where is that one? are you thinking you will like it at all? I sure hope so Jaba.

    Jaba, I think the center of the quilt will be fine when it's stitched together, but that border isn't doing it for me on that quilt. Can you post with a narrow dark strip, then a less colorful border. I wouldn't do any thing to break the Irish chains - that's where the continuity comes in.

    that is what I am trying to decide.....which color (light/dark) for the stopper border.....the design needs its' stopper border, most do benifit from one or even two. This is so much fun !!!!

    I agree with you. I would go with a dark stopper border that would match the chain pieces and would give that quilt top a frame.

    I like it Jaba, but seeing it in person and seeing it on the computer are tow different things, besides I am going crosseyed looking at sewing projects!

    I agree with the comment, put it away for a while then when you get it back out you might like it better or at least want to finish it to give to a charity.

    I also like the diagonal border but I will put a solid one after it. Can't wait to see more!

    jaba, finish it. you picked out the colors, and they went together when you had them laying on the table. once it's quilted and finished, you will like it again. that happens soo much to me.

    i just took mine to the quilters. and offered it to the local high school robotics team for a raffle quilt. i told them if they raffled it, they could have it, but not to auction. don't know how raffles work, or if they can pull it off.

    I'm still not feeling it at all and sadly not the other one either. My hubby saw it last night and he kind of looked at me like I had gone completely bonkers. He knows me too well!! I like things to blend more and sort of be at peace I guess. I'm just going to make them up for donation , I really am behind on that this year anyway, usually send about 20 - 24 a year to "Quilts for Kids" and have only sent 13. Maybe that's what my mind was trying to tell me, lordy who knows. It was still fun and I'll do it again when the next train is ready to board, you can't get rid of me that easy . Plus I'll feel better that 4 more kids will have a quilt.

    Wow that was nice sewnso I hope they can raffle it off at one of their events. They will love it. You were SOO fast if it kills me. I was overdone yesterday so no sewing but today is a new day and the machine talks. It is to rain 10-20 inches in the next four days so i think I might need an oar if I try to leave. I am thinking trees will be coming down.

    Jaba, I like the colours, and I am definitely NOT a pink person! The softer green just seems to go well with the pink.

    Oh, please send some down to Texas! We are so dry and getting drier. I know that much rain can be devastating, so not making light of it. Just wish we could get a good soaker.

    It's DONE!!

    TA-DA!! I just pulled mine off of Queenie! All I have left to do is trim & bind it. I was having trouble with quilt design & called on 2 other longarmers for help. Thanks Judy Lee & Debcavan for your input! The lighting wasn't the best, so it looks a whole lot better in person than in t he pictures. Hope you guys can see it though.

    That is so totally gorgeous! OMG I write like a teenager...
    Well, here is my silly story. Somehow, I did realize this would come out so BIG! I could not wait to make the first 2 blocks. What a surprise. No way can I get this done for Christmas! But then... 2 darling friends are getting married in July. Aha! A wedding gift! Next time, I will read ALL the information. Thanks Judy!!

    Thank you Judy for the tremendous trip. I am just back from holiday visits and will try to catch up and finish the quilt. I really like the pattern and like others, if I knew what it was in the begining I would of thought it was too difficult.

    I am not sure how my fabric selections are going to work out. Hopefully I can post some pictures this weekend or next. I want to at least get the top finished prior to Christmas.

    It was wonderful time to spend with everyone. Great food and companionship. Keep posting so all of us will be encouraged to finish.
