    I have never done a Mystery Quilt....but I have been reading through this thread and it sounds like fun! I'd like to jump on board if you have room for one more.

    The DWR quilt is done (the "D" doesn't always stand for "double," if you get my drift!)!!! So...I can join this trip. YEE-Haw!! The long arm quilter gets the DWR and rest of the "stuff" this afternoon and after that Mom hand quilts it. But my part is done, well, except the binding. This thing has been in the works for over a year. Let's go! I'm ready and will bring some of my homemade applesauce for the trip!

    don't forget gang, it's going to be a new thread. Watch for it Saturday after 9 am - I think Mountain time, cuz Judy's in Arizona. I know I'll jump on board once I get back from the quilt show.

    I hope I can find the time to do this one.....I also lurked on the last one, but I did print out the instructions each week, and it's on my bucket list to do.

    I wonder if warm apple cider is fattening????? I am going to make some for everyone. In fact I will keep it going in a coffee pot so you can get a drink when ever you want on our long wonderful train ride. Are we going to the North pole?????? Or did you pick a warm place like the Carribean..........hurricane season is over.....although I prefer the North Pole. Working on quilts can be a very warm experience.

    Have been hearing train whistles today, but know it's not our train. Can't wait. We have wood turners here tomorrow night for a pot luck. DH is grilling a turkey - homemade turkey soup next week - I'll share. I made a huge batch of salsa today along with Tomato Bisque soup. So we can start out thinking/eating healthy and then when the "sugar" comes we won't feel as guilty. Oh the warm apple cider sounds so good!!!!!

    Until tomorrow.

    Finished my 2nd Mystery Train Table Topper, just in time to start working on the 3rd one. Here is the photo of the flimsy. I used the peach color that was in the print, but don't know if I like it. What do you think. Should I redo it and put the green color in its place???

    Jeanie, love your floral fabric. Can't really see the peach from the photo. If it were me, I'd use a purple in place of the peach, but I like purple. Why don't you fold some fabric, green or purple, put it kind of on top of the peach and see which one you like better.

    Jeanie, I agree with Jaba, I don't think that peach works. I would go with a solid purple too.

    a deep purple would be awsome, either solid or reads solid like a Moda'marble' or Michael Miller 'Krystal' or a darker green.....but I really should not say because obviously I love greens and purples and golden yellows and deep redbrowns......................sigh.....fabric is wonderful

    Ditto for the purple. It would mean more work, ugh, ripping stitches. Also agree with SunlitenSmiles. A marble would be good.

    Thanks so much for the input! I will rip out the borders and go with another color! I really appreciate you taking your time to help me out!

    I know this is an old thread, but I would like to attempt this. Can it be done using Jelly Roll strips?
