    That is a super fall quilt! It says pumpkins and fall leaves and cozy bowls of hot soup and spiced tea yup a cup of hot tea to go with it. Ok time for my coffee before i get out the crayons. I have been up almost an hour now no coffee seeing how long i can hold out. not happening. I can not make an hour. its singing to me like those ladies in that old was it Jason and the Argonaut movie when they go by the siren island and it is luring them in? yup that is it but alas I am not Jason and therefore will say heck with it and let the coffee win. This time

    I remember the sirens luring the travelers in Oh Brother, Where Art Thou, a tongue-in-cheek movie with George Cluney and others I can't remember their names, it was hysterical and was a take off on the myth of Jason and the Argonauts

    I have something I am sampling out right now, a scrappy stash buster that can be made in whatever size you want. (Well, with all the stash we have, nothing except a quilt to cover a football field could be considered a true stash buster.)

    But, this is not a big involved 5 or 6 week quilt, and can be accomplished in 2 or 3 longish lessons -- I thought maybe I could give you mystery fans something to do in January until the next mystery quilt train starts the middle or end of February.

    Hmmm .... I know some of you are still hanging around in the club car -- just wondered if anyone had any interest. I was thinking of posting 12/29, 1/5 and 1/12.

    Since I don't have the current one done, I'd probably print the directions and do it at a later time. Need to get my sewing room reorganized and then I'll be ready to go again, but have this lat mystgery to finish as well. Just not motivated to sew. Good thing I don't need to rely on sewing for an income!

    Oh yes, I'd be up for that. Lots of bits of this at that and strips galore I'd love to use on a mystery...

    Works for me but then I'm more of an observer so maybe I could actually make one that took less time and I have some time off over the holidays as well.

    Ditto here. Gotta do something with my growing pile of stash scraps, been dumping everything into a scrap tote.

    Ditto! I can use my scraps from this one with some other colors and use for it my Cystic Fibrosis quilt. I need it before the middle of February and the theme is red roses, so your timing would be perfect. Thank you for doing this.

    I'll come here to say when I post, in case you are still around. Like I mentioned, it will be scrappy with a little bit of WOF. and will once again be posted in the BOM section, something like Fast Mystery Quilt Train Ride. But if you have a better suggestion for name, I'm open to your ideas.

    I plan on posting on Saturday 12/29 with fabric requirements. Then again on 1/5 and 1/12 -- that will give you all of it. And then I run away on vacation on the 15th! But you will all be fine, it is straightforward directions, and don't think you will have any questions. And no Quilt Police to say you have to have it done by the time I return on the 25th.

    But I have almost finished the sample and I really like it, hope you all will too.

    I'm good with the Scrappy Train/Amtrak/chugalug. lol. I haven't finished the last, but it gives me something to catch up on. lol

    I have a box of scrap bags I tried to sell at a huge garage sale for 1.00 each and no one bought any, so yeah, I have scraps GALORE.
