    Lucky #13 Mystery Quilt Train Ride starts 4/30/2016

    Are we all packed and ready to leave the station on Saturday? The train is coming down from Alaska as we speak, will be ready to load all of the passengers and their baggage, with a departure time of 9:00 Pacific daylight savings time. Hope to see all new and returning train riders, we will be having a great ride.

    I'll be there though I haven't ever done one of your mysteries. Just save them for later. Love reading what others have done with your mysteries, the fabrics, the color combos keep me interested enough to keep abreast of what's going on.

    I'll be jumping on board, but won't be able to make the quilt until sometime later. Too many UFOs stacked up that I have to get to first. I'll bring some sticky cinnamon buns to share.

    I'm packed and waiting outside for the train. Hope they add a couple more dining cars as we seem to use them a lot. lol. I posted pictures of my finished runner from # 12 on the runner swap instead of the train ride. Gotta go repost it. Sometimes I really wonder who took off with my mind. See ya all at the station.

    Hello:
    I am new to this site, have never done a mystery quilt, or even a mystery block, but am eager to give it a try. I did survive a train ride in Alaska a couple of years ago though and I am looking forward to another hair-raising adventure on this train.

    Sheepshed, nothing to sign up. No info to send in. Just open this sight and click on the train ride mystery with the rest of us. Judy will give the info for the fabric and cutting instructions saturday. over a few Saturdays she will give some new instructions and so on till it's done and you see what you have made. It's a fun ride with lots of fun people and you can post pictures as we go along of what yours looks like from week to week. We have made some really pretty items. It's free and Judy gives great info and lots of help. See ya Saturday.

    Vicki have fun and I'm sure you will catch up with us just fine. Tapper, usually it's just for a few weeks. I think they have been different each ride. If you have something interfere with the ride just mark the clues and start back up when you can. Judy usually gives plenty of time for each clue. It really is a fun and easy ride. You'll enjoy it.

    Thanks, Mary, everything you said is perfect -- I had one mystery with 3 weeks of clues and the biggest was 7 or 8 weeks. I just finished writing the instructions and taking the how-to photos, and am getting ready to figure out how to put it all together so not sure of how long this one will be. But can't wait for Saturday morning to get this new mystery under way. See you all then!
