    LOL great answers, but you're right, Sunlite, the second one could attract the wrong kind of crowd.

    Glad so many of you have already committed to this. I love scrappy, it really is my favorite.

    The top is done, pictures taken, now I need to write it all out. Whoo hoo, another trip coming up in 2-1/2 weeks!

    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.
    That is a fabulous idea ...count me in!!

    HaHa. That's funny. You made me laugh and THANKS! I'll have that song in my head all day too!

    @Judy. I'd climb aboard for a Fast Scrappy Mystery Train Ride. It would fit right in with my 2013 goal.

    I have been lurking on this post the entire time, and have had so much fun reading all of your posts. They are turning out great! This has been so much fun to follow.
    HOWEVER, with so many of you making this quilt, I'm wondering why so few have posted pictures of their finished blocks??? Am I looking in the wrong place? PLEASE, please share, and make my day!

    GrandmaMary, you're in the right place. I think everyone just had to finish Xmas stuff and don't have theirs completed yet. Mine is put together but still waiting for me to quilt as I had deadlines on other stuff that needed to be done first.

    I am still at clue #2. So far behind. Have to stop because of work, and now my sewing machine is not working. Hopefully Santa will be very nice this Christmas.
    Hi Judy, I am interested in the scrappy mystery. Probably will print out instruction and work on it later. Thank you Judy and thank you ladies for for this ride. For a newbie, I learned a lot.

    Ditto. Just too many other projects to complete before Christmas.

    Mine is in pieces and I know I'm going to love it, but Christmas has precedence right now. I will finish this one as I work on the scrappy because I have a perfect place for the red and black.

    I have been a lookylu on this ride, but I love all the quilts and wished I would have jumped in at the beginning. I think I will jump on for the next ride. I'm sure I won't be disappointed and my scrap pile could be put to good use.

    Judy, am I going to able to use just three colors as long as I have a variety of fabrics, or does it need to be total scrappy? I have a variety of red, white and black based fabrics. I wouldn't be concerned if it weren't for an auction to raise money at the Cystic Fibrosis dinner dance. I like colorful scrappy under normal circumstances.

    I still need to finish the last set of blocks. First, I was sidetracked with Chirstmas. Now, I'm sidetracked with charity blankies (blankets), and then it will be clean up the sewing room so I can walk through it without breaking my neck. So, there you go...will post a picture when I get it done. Right now, January's looking good, but hope for sooner. :-) And hey, join in ...lurkers are fine, but these train trips are nifty!!

    I finished slow but finished the back today for this quilt. I had opted to piece what I had left into something to make a back for this. I however had odd sizes left so it was a strip 4 inches, a 29 x 42 and a 4 inch and then another piece and a 4 inch then the bottom half even scrapper but kept with long length and 4 inch wide and then wider then 4 inch hodge podge of use it ups.. and it works looks very good for scrappers and well I was happy sorta I didnt go out and spend another 25 for backing. I was working with what I had to begin with. I am also not fond of all the pinkys in this so buying MORE and leaving me with some leftover well how good an idea would that have been? I did weight in tonight gee hours making this work vs one big old piece cut and tada your done.. there are advantages. I still think.. the price was right for this time of year. NO extra expenses. I am going to use the 45 degree angle pieces for the binding. and its going to work perfectly crossing fingers. I am a bit apprehensive about stuffing that size quilt into my sewing machine for quilting. lots of tight rolling. and patience. oodles of that too. ok off to cook dinner and maybe pin a quilt!

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

Size:  266.0 KBHere is my top all done and I love it! I love the way it turned out. I don't know if the picture is to dark because the border is a dark chocolate brown not black. Thank you Judy. I can't wait for the next train trip!
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!
