    Jenniky, if you like yellow, you might consider using a yellow since it it is the only color in your # 1 fabric not otherwise represented in the stack you showed. If I were choosing (and not knowing the outcome) I'd eliminate fabric 4 or 5 since you have those colors already in the stack. Does that second opinion help?

    I am slightly late getting here today, but I am in again!! I can hardly wait, this is so exciting. I am now trying to decide if I want to use charm packs or fabric's? Oh what shall I do?

    A link would be great! This may not be where to post this, but the new mystery train never popped up on my menu yesterday. Only because I knew about it and did the search did I find it. This AM it still doesn't show. Guess I'm doing something wrong, but can't figure that out. I can just do a search...I did say to subscribe to the thread, so maybe that will work and notify me automatically?

    I had consider a yellow but could not find one that went.. If I find one before we begin cutting I possible would swap it for the green. Im really on the boarder with the green tone on tone fabric not necessary the color. Thank you for your input Foxflower every bit helps.
    Have an awesome day!

    Hi Sulabug good to see you joining the mystery train again. We are gearing up to share some tasty applesauce and fruit butters on biscuits in the club car while we are waiting for Judy to return from her holiday and once more lead us on a fantastic mystery journey. I heard rumor there was going to be rhubarb tea? Well rhubarb has been talked about so we will see if its a tea, pie or other pastry. The chocolate wine seems to be a favorite also. Well for me anything chocolate is outstanding. I believe I heard that two charm packs were necessary if you were going for the scrappy choice and using charm packs versus fabric. I'm looking forward to seeing your fabric picks. Personally Im enjoying a cup of Earl Grey with a twist of lemon in the club car so everyone come on back and enjoy when your ready to put your feet up.
    Have an awesome day!

    Welcome back, Cheryl, and anyone else I missed that got on board.

    I asked Patrice to put a "sticky" on this new mysery so it will keep showing up at the top of the BOM section. Keeping the chatter going, keeps the link at the top of the BOM list. Should make it easier to find for those who can't bookmark it.

    Oh, gosh - have never, ever done one of these, so think I may TRY. I'll probably be asking for help ALL THE TIME. Thanks. Dodee

    If I am late getting on the train, perhaps someone else can bring the Rhubarb Tea. Here is the recipe, it makes 2 quarts:

    8 stalks rhubarb, cut into 2" pieces
    8 cups water
    Bring the first two ingredients to a boil then simmer for at least an hour. Let cool and strain. The add you favorite sweeter to taste. Serve iced. You can also garnish with something like mint, my favorite is Pineapple Sage.
    Sweet Caroline

    Ok Caroline S, thanks for the recipe, where is Spanaway Washington? That sounds interesting. Since I am in Washington as well, maybe we should meet at the same depot to get on the train. I am going to pick some rhubarb and make this up. It sounds so good. I am excited that my rhubarb is doing well so far this year. It has taken a few years to get going but is coming up so nicely this year. Put manure in my garden last year and has made such a difference.

    I'm jumping off the train to go pick some rhubarb. I won't be checking my stash until Saturday because I'm up to my neck in a parade of wedding gowns at my church tomorrow. Rhubarb tea will be a welcome diversion.

    Now you are talking!! Homemade Bavarian Cream filled pastries to go with the Rhubarb tea, sounds wonderful. Do you think he would make enough for all of us riding this train? I am licking my lips now!! YUM-YUM.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    Caroline S............I used to live in Spanaway, when I was a young girl. I loved it over there, but my folks moved back to Yakima when I was in the fourth grade!! I still love to go back & visit that area.


    QuilterMomma..........Where in Washington do you live? My daughter lives in Pt. Orchard. It is such a nice place to visit.


    This train ride is starting out really Great everyone, come enjoy the ride with all of us.

    I just love train rides. I also would love to try Rhubard tea. Never heard of it but why not. Also all the goodies that everyone is bringing so I thought some nice watermelon slices would fit in just great. Oh yeah this is my first train ride. I haven't decided on my fabric yet but Rasberry colors are calling me. Any suggestions as to what would match Rasberry. How on earth do you spell that word????? I really already have a lot that I am doing but I work well under stress. Either that or I get buried in it. Well off to work on another project and maybe this weekend I can find some fabrics to use for this. It may end up being totally scrappy.

    asked my iPhone how to spell Rhubarb and Raspberry. got it now.

    I am thinking that some spring green fabric would work well with raspberry. Sort of like sherbet colors don't you think?

    I am a new quilter and have never done a mystery quilt project, so this looks like it would be a lot of fun! I am thinking Christmas quilt since I am slow.
