    I just have to say I am just loving the ones with the dark backgrounds. I think I may have to do another that way. Here is mine.

    debquilts and dabbler, those are striking! Love the drama of your colors.

    kd7, love the way yours turned out. So pretty.

    Florence, your top is beautiful! Love the colors you chose. And Florence, I agree with you, those ones with the dark background and bright colors are striking.

    Omg, I love them all, dark backgrounds, lights, batiks, scrappy. Just wonderful. I have my grand dd here today and she's sort of hogging the sewing machine. lol She's making her mom a table runner and placemats to match. I could have moved her to a different machine but this little one was the easiest for her to wrangle. And, believe me, it doesn't pay to use one machine and change off. Will most likely get mine done after the race and kids go home. Love em all, just love em. kids and quilts

    Thank you Judy - also thank you for doing this mystery for us - I look forward to participating in another one - this has been an awesome journey for a first mystery and I'm lovin it. All the quilts look just spectacular; does anyone have a suggestion on what to do for the quilting?

    I was totally challenged on putting it together and had to have my son come and help me. I am now sewing them together. Will post a picture real soon. I love how everyone's is turning out. So beautiful.

    Mystery almost solved?

    Here's what I think is the outcome, minus the sashing. I changed a couple of the last clue pieces before I sewed it to make it more balanced also.

    oh! If you're wondering about the funny flying geese next to the mystery, it's a sample of the 1 seam flying geese that I'm putting together to do a class on. I also found out another thing to do with them...cathedral windows! Am doing a sample of that one too.
    Dappler....I really like the orange & black! It really shines! I've got a ton of orange that now I'm thinking of doing this pattern with.

    I can't believe how Cindy60545's quilt looks 3D. It's amazing. I noticed quite a few of them looked 3D. I just found this thread today and am going to start making this quilt. Had to cheat and read ahead. Wow! This looks so fun!

    Every block I have seen is wonderful. No favorites, all are spectacular. I had to jump off the train this weekend to finish planting the garden but will hop back on board in the morning for breakfast. What kind of goodies will I find? I love the mystery pattern and may do another quilt with multiple blocks. Hmmm, the Mystery Train wheels are a turning in my brain. Thanks Judy for a wonderful train ride and am looking forward to the next Mystery.

    Sweet Caroline

    I'm caught up with the reading and printing out the clues.....not with my sewing. I picked up a quilt from the LA today and am working on the binding. Must have it finished to take to my mom next weekend. Then I will get to work on the mystery quilt. I have only done step 2. They are all turning out so nice. I can't wait to see mine.
    My dd came today to live with us for awhile. She starts her new job as a pharmacist tomorrow. Her hubby comes for an interview on tues and will hopefully get this job in our area. She just found out yesterday that she is pregnant. Yes, I am going to have my first grandchild next February. It is a secret since she is only 1 month along but I know all of you will not tell. Shhh!

    I love the Carpenters Star, Never saw it coming and I just finished one about 3 months ago for a baby quilt. I am late with this weeks clue, but so glad to be able to catch up sometime tomorrow. We had a yard sale this weekend! I sold a lot of fabric! One mans trash is another's treasure! Most of the fabric I sold was not cotton, and I sold some cutouts from the 80's. Pre-printed Vests and a few dolls. We had a good time and got rid of a lot of extra stuff we did not need!

    Sewing the blocks together and it is really turning out with a great look ! I am quessing that the corners of the border end up with the little square in the middle touching a stopper border....but I can see several other possibilities so I am still mystified and loving it !

    Dolls, Marybeth....wish I had known.

    Did two stores of the quilt run yesterday ....wished a favorite LQS owner a Happy Birthday at one and won a prize (tiny little batterie operated lite that be attached to work area several ways) at another. Wore me out, came home and crashed......I just have to get younger !

    HOOOO-EEEEE! I'm stitching these squares together and this quilt will probably be used to signal the Martians to come pick me up!!! Will post when done. Have to work at the church today and it's probably our sweet kitty's last day due to a cancerous tumor. She's 1 1/2 months short of 20 years!!

    Well, I must say that I am happy that I kept you guessing, that you didn't see the Carpenter's Star coming! Is there another name for this block, does anyone know?
