    Works, just noticed your little blurb at the bottom of your postings. Reminds me of a sign I have in my bathroom:

    I'll bring some chocolate creams to the club car later to go with the other goodies! But right now I am thinking fabric. I'm thinking maybe a scrappy done in 1930's repro. fabrics with a tone on tone white for background... not sure of a color for the sashing - maybe a red or a bright yellow?. Any suggestions for the sashing color????

    I've had a few PMs asking about scrappy and using charm packs. I think my original posting was a bit misleading, but can't seem to change it now. As to using charm packs, you would probably need almost 2 full packs (most charms packs have about 40 blocks I think) and then eliminate the 1/3 yard of fabric D. You will still need the 1/3 yard of sashing color E. So sorry for the confusion.

    Maybe wait until the time comes to use the sashing before you make your choice. At least, that is what I did with my scrappy.

    I "think" if you ask Patrice she can edit the original post for you with the correct info.

    Also ... are you going to do a separate thread each week, with the new instructions?
    That might be a way to make it easier for all to find the instructions .... and then tell them to do all the discussion back in this thread.

    Failing that ... if you're keeping it to one thread, again, perhaps you could ask Patrice to add in the post # where the next instructions are located.

    Just some thoughts that might help all that follow along or jump on in later stages.

    And we are off! Really do need to finish last one before I begin this one but can choose fabrics! I enjoyed the last one and want to choose my fabrics carefully!

    Hugs,

    So excited to start a new train ride! I also love batiks so I just might join Carolyn in doing a scrappy batik. I am still working on the last one. My goal is to have it done before I actually start sewing on this one. I cut some more geese last night. Still not sure how it will end.

    Finished the binding on "autumn flight" so will post here. The last train was great, envied all of you in that club car but it doesn't come even close to Wyo. Maybe the next one I'll have to plan a road trip to jump aboard for a few days. Here's the outcome of the last mystery.....think it has a little much yellow.Name:  DSCF0598.JPG

    Jaba, looks great -- and this train will swing through Wyoming, so be ready to jump on board. In fact, it may be able to stop in every state except Hawaii and Alaska, but those people, come on down to the lower 48 and let us know where to pick you up. The more the merrier.

    I'm in and bringing the applesauce, Jenniky! Had to use the search function to find this, but glad the train hadn't pulled out of the station yet! My first mystery isn't done, but maybe we'll have more time to sew this trip. :-)

    Oh now I need to know about the rhubarb tea, how do I make some so I can bring it as well. May bring in some of that pie but have to bake a new one. Schwans man comes tonight, will get some triple berry blend to throw in with the rhubarb. Yum yum, rum rum rum rum. Oooops, this is not one of those train rides.

    All Aboard!! Absolutely!! Can't wait to get "going" with you all. So many ideas rolling around in my head. Oh wait, that might be because the train is moving. LOL. Can't wait to get started but have to visit my grandson first. Nope, won't make a quilt for him. He already has sooo many. Well, he is my only grandchild. We will need a lot of snacks to get us through until the 26th. Yummy.

    Knee deep in stash that is not speaking to me :)

    Alright it might take me weeks to figure out my fabrics. Here are the six I pulled from my stash. I have been so wanting to use the two paisleys blue and green to make something for my room. I sew need help with this. ... Fabric #1 is my Primary A; I was looking at putting the solid blue to go with it as My B and then the green paisley as the sashing and the paisley blue as the blender then picking between the two remaining colors.. the green may not look like it blends.. the camera is pulling out a lot of white in it that is not there when you look at it with the naked eye. Please bare with all my pictures and please I will not be offended by anyone's opinion..this is what Im asking for ladies.. So please help. Ideas do these work??..do I need to buy some other color fabric to give it more flavor?..Now remember Im a country western fanatic so help me stay within that type of fabric/theme.

    Pretty fabric. I wish I could help you but I'm not even sure what I am doing with mine yet. Since Judy knows the outcome, I think you might want to listen to her opinion. I like it all.

    Hmmm ... all are pretty. I think my vote would go to eliminate the bright blue. I think 1, 2 and 3 for A B and C. Then, when you get the 2nd clue, decide how you want to use your A B and C. Hang on to 5 and 6, you'll see the perfect way to use them when we get near the end. Good job, Jenniky.

    Thanks Judy... fabric #3 is the lighter blue with the paisley print that one you say is good to keep. Fabric #4 the medium blue is a solid that is the one you are saying to leave out..correct?
    Have an awesome day!

    Yes. If it was my fabric and I was choosing, this is what I would do.
