    Gorgeous, Cindy!! Love your colors! I had intended to use soft pinks, peaches and yellows--might need to add something a bit darker for more contrast, after seeing yours and others!! (Haven't actually started this mystery as I have too many other projects I need to finish!)
    So far everyone's colors are so cool!

    I'm heading to the club car for a root beer float!!

    ooops! Have to get booted off the train for dozing. I went to start tonight (was delayed by newbie-ness and didn't have the sashing colour yet decided) and just realized that I better double check my A, B, C size of pieces. Yep, you guessed it. A and B are only 39-40 inches not 1 1/4 yard as needed. As I can't afford to go to my not so LQS, I will have to disembark and wave goodbye. Darn, I was hoping to do a Christmas table top. Let me know if you just overestimated by any chance? or do you need ever inch of that 1/4 yard???SIGH!

    All I can say is WOW - Cindy, heylillian, and Dotty, your tops are stunning. Good job!!!

    Pattia, the 1-1/4 yard was a bit generous. Can't remember how generous, but I would say go for it -- if you don't have quite enough after you have made the half square triangles that make up the center medallion and the pieces from clue 3 posted on June 2nd, you can always add some other fabrics for the piano key segments posted on June 9th. The piano keys would look fine with different colors added in.

    And yes, the final parts will be posted next Saturday. There will be nothing posted on June 30th as originally planned.

    thanks Judy, I may just try it. Already I goofed and had to use what I was thinking was D for the sashing instead, and use the patterned fabric for C instead as well. I messed up big time and hope it still turns out. I have lots of Christmas fabby so can add in on the edges
    maybe I will give it a try. definitely mine will be different. lol

    Loving all these beautiful centers so far! This is such a blast Still plugging along here, will post pictures when I can find the camera charger..... it seems to be playing hide and seek. Not surprising since the cats seem to think it's a toy to bat around until they can't reach it lol Suppose I'll just have to finish the binding I've been avoiding since It's getting appraised on saturday, less than a week whew better get busy.

    Step 5 of my mystery star

    Wow - I love all the variety of fabrics chosen for this mystery trip - ladies you have done a spectacular job; I just finished with my step 5. I don't have a design wall so it doesn't fit completely in the photo. This went together so nicely that I just might have to do another in 30's feedsacks or with some black and whites.
