    Thank you everyone for playing this marvelous mystery train game. I so much enjoy having a place to go to.. to see other woman doing the same thing together and how different we all are playing. Some used everything as suggested in the train instructions some tailored them to better suit their needs, everyone used completely different color palates and it was exciting seeing progress as it was posted and TADA moments when some were finished. So thank you everyone and I hope to not drive you horrendously nuts playing the next two trains. I think I loved the food so much I might just sit here in the first car and wait for the rest of you to jump on. Merry Christmas everyone.

    Hi Everyone hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas Day. I want to share with you what I am working on at the moment Granddaughter asked if I would make an Elmo Quilt. Well here it is and I surprised them by adding a few family photos into the quilt blocks. I am going to sash around blocks with black. The outer border will be material with Cookie Monster and Elmo doing Football. First picture is of the blocks, second one is Great Grandson Kody.Name:  Kody Elmo quilt in progress.jpg

Size:  255.5 KBThe colors aren't true in this photo. The black is actually a dark forest green and the white is actually mint green. Nevertheless, is the the way these blocks go together? Something isn't looking right and I don't want to sew them all and not have it work the way it's supposed to. Maybe I'm just having a "duh" moment. Thanks for any help. Somehow I only ended with four 9 patches...back to the sewing table! Hope everyone on our QB is safe from this storm.

    That's right coopah but you should have more blocks. Still need to quilt mine, then I'll post it.

    Thanks, Jaba. It just didn't look right. Oh, yes, I have more blocks, but when I take an iPad picture, they come out huge...I was just needing to confirm that I had it correct before trying to stitch it all together. Tomorrow PM will find me at the machine again. :-)

    Coopah, go to post # 1092. On my computer it's page 110 and you can see the final results of our hostess's quilt. She did split them up and make 2 instead of 1, but it will give you a very good idea of how it all goes together for sure. Hope this helps....

    Thanks, Jaba. I have screen shots of Judy's and some of the others, but my problem is...hard to explain. I think I have to get all the blocks laid out to see the full pattern. The purple has the light color in the spot where on the green it is the darker color...I'm just nuts and way over thinking this. Today is errands day, so will work on it tomorrow and just do it. This dithering is probably why I have so many UFOs and why my mother bought me a journal "Me and My Big Ideas...A Goal Journal" for Christmas (it's going back to the store!!).

    too funny, maybe that's what I need is a journal. I write things down and then can't find the paper I wrote it on. Maybe with a journal it would all be in one place, I'd just have to find the journal

    Works for me, coopah! Will look different when you put a couple more together, you'll see the X made of the dark and the light squares.

    OK. I'll take your word for it. Today has been a sick day, so hope to get back to the quilt tomorrow. :-)

    I figure by the time I come home this morning all of you will have whipped out the first clue. zoom zoom zoom and all but I will be right behind you. Excited? oh yes yes I am. Wish me a nice ice free road today so I can go to the store after lunch. Right now 20 degrees and snow/ice all over the place. shoot. My driver just called cant get up the hill again. You would think up here in the mountains they would equipt them with all they need. She wont use her chains and the van with mudsnow is in the shop. Bummer in the summer. That truck is freezing! (no heater in the snow plow)..jolly morning to you all when I defrost I will hit the road running!

    I just finished reading 10 pages on this thread and LOVE LOVE LOVE all the quilts pictured. I'm exactly where I was the first of December when I said I should be finished in a week. But I am going to put the blocks together today and assemble this quilt tomorrow so I can join the new mystery. I'm becoming addicted to doing mysteries -- they are so much fun!

    If you like color as much as I do, this may be one of those that is great once it's sewn. I like the purple tying it all together. I do like it!

    I don't think a thousand stitches gets a quilt done. At 12 to an inch, that's only 83 inches. I know I sewed more than that starting a baby quilt today. I feel like a ripped out that many - I guess I did - one 42 inch strip was wrong side out and a few other do overs added up quickly. The quilt looks like it will be cute, but I want to work on my red and black mystery.
