    Wonderful! The Bonnie Hunter mystery should be wrapping up around the time you give cutting instructions. Let this train roll!

    Belfry, can't see the BH ending next week. We haven't even touched the yellow, and haven't assembled anything. This is the first BH mystery I have done, so I don't know her process but seems like there is still a lot to do if it does indeed end that week

    Judy, your instructions are always easy to follow and end up with some patterns I would never choose had I known where they would end because I would write the pattern off as too hard. Thanks for the confidence building instructions.

    Looking forward to it! B.Zang is right about confidence building with the mystery patterns you give us. My 1/2 square triangles have improved, but I'm still not crazy about them! :-) See you Saturday!

    I'm looking forward to relaxing and sewing with everyone. Bonnie Hunter has the reveal posted, but there's around 3 steps left to do, although she compacts them into one. I should be finished assembling the half size by the time we start the cutting and sewing on this one. At least that is my plan, but we all know when humans plan, God laughs.

    I agree with you. I think Bonnie has a couple of weeks to go. But...It's a mystery!

    Well I'm coming along from the ride. Not sure if I'll join in as I have two quilts to make before the beginning of April.

    I'm ready for the train ride. I have been following the mysteries for years, and finally sewed the last mystery. Even then, I couldn't start on it until I saw what it was going to finish to be. This time I am going to give over control to Judy and pick my fabrics out at the beginning and start sewing. I am, I am, I am!!! "big smile" Does anyone else have mystery quilt control paralysis? I will overcome this terrible condition. I do hope it isn't too big of a quilt. I did love the last table runner. It was quick. I didn't lose my attention span and the result was very pretty. Thanks Judy for starting the train ride again.

    I swore I would not do another mystery quilt for awhile but this sounds like fun and I'm hoping that all the fabric I need comes from my stash, which is epic.

    Hooray! I love following along. I just finished the borders on Mystery 7!!! I found it when I was cleaning/reorganizing over the summer.

    I quickly made a short list of projects I am working on, UFO's, and a couple that I want to start. So now I have one more to add. Hopefully, this list will keep me from losing/forgetting projects.

    OK, I'm going to ask. I've seen these conversations every year about the "train" but I have never figured out how to join. I'm asking on bended knee how do you get your "ticket"?

    Yes...Chersom, I have been a member on here for a pretty good while, but I'm just not familiar with the Train thing - I hope someone will help us out with this.
    Too much to quilt, not near enough time....
