    I got mine finished today...YEA! I like the way it turned out...can't wait to show my friend how her scraps got put to use!!! I like nice size throws (50x60 usually), so that's what I made this one. Judy, thank you so much for another great trainride & will be hoping for the best for your upcoming surgery. And all you ladies, thanks for the NON-fattening trip...that's always great! Decided not to do the kid fabric I wanted to do also, I really don't think the fabrics suit this pattern. So, it's just the one quilt this time...later I will make a tablerunner with more of the scraps. So looking forward to the next one in the fall! Ok, here's my top (not quilted or bound yet).

    All,
    Thanks for the feedback on which option to use for my binding....then after looking at all the other pics, I may be able to just use the turq or orange from the star...will do some trial runs to see how they look..appreciate your time to share your thoughts...

    Everyone's finished mysteries are very inspiring..thanks for sharing.

    VickiM, I really like how yours came out, scrappy, but not. The additional border really makes it look cool.

    Everose, I took a look at that site, some interesting patterns, for sure. PaintmeJudy might like to take a look at them to give her some ideas for the fall train ride, they are unusual.

    Well, that was a dumb reply, lol, thought I hit the reply with quote button. I said you are welcome for the rhubarb bar recipe. I enjoy them as I said but especially fresh rhubarb from the garden. Now it makes more sense.

    I love your idea Judy. You have me stuck on Carpenters Wheels now. LOL I already have figured out how I want to expand the one I have going..but your idea is wonderful. I am going to start another one and use your idea of the two Medallions stacked.
    Have an awesome day!

    Your quilt is beautiful Vicki your purples are so soft and comforting. This blanket will not only give warmth but also lends to a visual soothing effect. You must be very pleased.
    Have an awesome day!

    I have been doing so much traveling since this train ride started. Which makes sense, I guess. LOL I think I am settled for a while now. Today I completed step 3. Everyone's quilts look so good!

    I've been on the ride observing. You have all done some beauties! I have wanted to do a Carpenters Star for awhile. I really kicked myself when I saw the end clues. But I printed the patterns. Judy made it look so easy. I'll for sure do one. This week I have to write six papers for my English class I'm taking. And finish sewing siggis on my blocks for sharonB's siggi trade. All y'all should do that! I'd love a siggi to remember more QB inspirers.

    Check that out. They're very simple I'd even help make Judy some since she'll be busy for awhile.

    That's the signup date. I think the blocks are due to her mid-July. I don't know. But maybe she'd move the deadline to get the 64 sign ups. They go together very fast. If anyone is interested PM sharonB and see. It could fill some time before the next mystery.

    OMGosh me too... I had to write them on a calendar so I'd stop getting confused. I'm combining a few together, like the garden PP, farm PP, chicken PP. I'm using my siggi's with my postage stamps and the wacky fall log cabins with deb's autumn block swap... EEEKKK! I need a head check!

    sheri i am just curious, what is the purpose of making siggi blocks to trade when they are not going as a label to a quilt project? is this swap just about collecting siggi blocks in general or do you do something with them?

    People do different things with them. I know in the Dear Jane thread we've talked about trading a signiture block between all the ladies who are working together to finish that. Some are using them in the backing as a momento. Some have made quilts for momento. I recently found a quilt in my MIL's closet she made with her sewing friends years ago and they each did a block and signed them. I think it's just a fun thing for memories, if you want. I see mine as a border or a backing on a quilt I've made from blocks traded through the QuiltBoard or like my mystery quilt done with all you here on the train. Just ideas. I think SharonB posted some finished projects people have done in the past.
