    Glad to have you along for the ride, Sarint, enjoy yourself. It will be a lot of fun. And as I mentioned in my opening paragraph, your traveling companions are a hoot!

    I vote for raspberry and lemon (yellow) maybe throw in some lime green just for fun. This is making me think of bothe sherbert and lemon cake with raspberry frosting. I think I might be hungry.

    this sounds like a lot of fun. I'm in! I've never done a mystery quilt before, so this will be interesting!

    Cindy, I too was hesitant about doing a mystery quilt, had never done one before I made up the last one. But these are small projects, not a large amount of fabrics, and really, they are a lot of fun. Please join up for the festivities!

    Dodee, this is my first mystery also, but it seems like so much fun (these ladies are crazy!) I thought I would try it here as opposed to other sites. And there looks to be lots of food, so it's my kind of group!

    This train ride is starting out really Great everyone, come enjoy the ride with all of us.
    It's so much fun to read all the posts, but I am totally jealous of you three living in God's country. We moved here two years ago come this July. We lived in Issaquah area. I sure miss being close to the ocean and just the way the folks there think and the FOOD! And the way everything grows. Well, we will be there the end of July/beginning of August, so maybe I can get a rhubarb fix then! And more apples for more applesauce! (From Leavenworth!)

    Sunliten, We need to look for quilting cruises out of Seattle that have a side trip to Mt. Rainier thrown in along with a trip to Pike's Place Market for some fresh raspberries and a trip to Issaquah for handmade chocolates. Oh, I think I need to eat lunch! Is the club car full yet?

    Oh dear, IBQ, did they lock you up there by mistake? We won't let it happen again and will pick you up soon.

    Okay, everyone, I'm finished packing, and waiting for Super Shuttle to take me to the airport. See you on the morning of the 24th, and will be posting the next mystery quilt's clue on the 26th. Good luck.

    Yeehaw! I'm jumping on this train ride I've never tried a mystery quilt so this should be exciting. New to the QB and trying all kinds of exciting stuff.

    Meet ya'll in the club car around cocktail hour..........

Size:  39.5 KBI hope Judy has a great vacation! So now that the boss is relaxing, will you give me your opinions on the fabrics I've chosen for the new mystery? I thought the yellow would work, but maybe it's too bright?

    I love your fabric selection & I think it will be very pretty together. The yellow color just might be the ticket to make it super special. Go for it girl!! I need to get mine picked out too.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    Thanks, Sulabug for the quick response. My sewing room really became "discombobulated" while I was checking stash. So I'm hoping the train picks me up soon. Then I can go to the club car for that rhubarb tea and not worry about the mess. LOL

    This sounds like fun. I'm game. I just finished my first mystery quilt last week. It was the recent one from McCalls's. I think I will have to do a baby quilt from all this fabulous baby fabric I have been collecting. Hopefully I can find the instructions when they come through.

    I've been pulling fabric today. Just keep looking at it to see if I want to switch or add something! Going to be fun again!

    Welcome, Pam! If you go to the top of any page at the top of this thread, click on "thread tools" and then click on "Subscribe to this thread." That way you won't miss out as they will be sent to you automically. Being someone that always makes things harder than they have to be, I didn't do that for the last mystery train and had to search every day. So goofy! You're going to like this group!

    Thanks, PokerDiva for letting me know about the fabric choices. They've been in the drawer awhile!
