    Paper: Really like your choices. I'm a little concerned about the scale of the focus fabric. I would love to use some of the fabric I couldn't live without and now wonder what to do with. How big is too big? If the focus is going to be cut into small pieces then I could end up with a fabric that is a different color everytime I cut it. Judy, if this hint would not give away too much it would sure help me make a decision.

    I'm on board. I'll put out the homemade peach salsa and tortilla chips in a little while.

    Not sure I want to do a super scrappy. Judy, will this work with two contrasting colours for your "scrappy" part and then two other complementary colours for the sashing and border?

    Oh boy, I have been meaning to divide up scraps. I had bought a round, medium-sized rattan hamper and just dumped scraps into it. I had tried to sell them one year for a dollar a bag, but no one wanted them. I do have some small packs of 2.5" charms also, hrm...

    PBadder: Love your strong B's. Although you probably won't make it for this Valentine's day that pink and red will be perfect for next year.

    Yup! You got it.

    You go, girl! Once you do a scrappy, you will be addicted, honest!

    In all the years I have quilted I have never done a scrappy. I have a whole tub of scraps, so guess it is time to get out that tub and get to work on using them up.

    That's too much info for today. So I'll just say -- if you set aside about a 4-1/2 to 5" piece you will be able to cut out what you need.

    Hmmmmm ... I guess maybe. You will be able to decide when you see next week's clue as we get started.

    Pbadder - great fabrics with nice contrast.

    NOTE TO ALL: remember what I said: A is sashing, B will be very prominent.

    And now I am gonna shut my mouth. Be back tomorrow. Have a good evening, all.

    I'm hopping on board. We're in the mountains so I wouldn't be able to get in my stash until Sunday night. But it's great to be back with such a great group! What fun!

    This is my starting point. I am hoping the color changes are small enough that I won't have unrelated seeming blobs of color.

    Yay!! I am in again, and I have lots of charms that I can use! They have been just sitting on the shelf in my sewing room, glad I can finally use them for something! I will now have to go find my A and B fabrics. Going to put some guacamole and chips in the restaurant car, if there is any left over from all the superbowl parties!! Love your mystery quilts Judy!!! Thank you for doing this again!!!

    WEE HA! Let the train take off! I just finished my 2nd UFO for 2014, so I'm ready to get rid of leftover scraps! Thanks, Judy for the thought and hard work you put into these trips!
