    new mystery quilt will begin on Oct. 13th

    Once again, you are invited to join another MYSTERY QUILT TRAIN RIDE, a quilt of my design. There will be a new posting, in the Blocks of the Week and Month section, on Saturday with the fabric requirements, and then I will NOT be posting on this thread after the mystery starts.

    We have had a blast on earlier mystery quilt trains, and I know a lot of returning passengers will be climbing on board. But everyone is welcome, new and returning passengers, from confident beginner to experienced quilters. Nothing terribly difficult, nothing you've never seen before, but probably never seen as this mystery will put your fabric together. I will check in here for the next few days to see if there are any questions from new riders.

    If you've never done a mystery quilt, please check us out. It really is fun. Think of it as walking up to an airline clerk and asking for a ticket on the next available flight. You have a bag packed with an assortment of shorts and tee shirts as well as jeans and a jacket. No matter where you end up, you'll have had an interesting and fun journey with great traveling companions. Hope to see you Saturday morning.

    Kim, this will be perfect for you, I always try to make the mysteries work for a confident beginner, someone who calls themselves an advanced beginner will be just fine. So glad you will join me on Saturday.

    Frusrated - glad you will join this one. But you can still do the other two, just don't look ahead at the clues. LOL

    I hear that the caboose is where all the vintage wine and Godiva chocolates are going to be stored.

    No, I know you won't, and I'll bet we can make a list of who will be trying to get in the door.

    OK, so this intriges me! I have thought it would be fun to "attempt" a mystery quilt. How does this work?
    Is there a previous "train" thread I can go back and look at to see?

    I would like to give this a try and use up some of my stash which it threatening to overrun more of the house.
    I have never done a mystery quilt so not sure how it all works.
    Do I have to remember to check in someplace for postings or do we get emails to remind us where to find the next step?

    For the newbies wanting to join, all will be answered in the first post on the 13th. Paintmejudy will post a new clue every Saturday for the next step in the construction of the quilt until the end. To stay in touch with the group, just subscribe to the thread & get the immediate email updates. I had never done a mystery quilt til the last one & enjoyed it very much. There's a lot of chit chat back & forth amongst us, no-calorie food exchanged, & a lot of guessing as to what's coming next! To see the first two train rides, go to the section on blocks of the month or week to see what they were like. Warning! There's a lot of posts in both! Come on in to the new one & enjoy the fun!

    Oh, boy! Judy I so enjoyed the last train ride even though I hid out in the caboose while I cut and sewed along. I am packed and with ticket in hand ready to board this train. What a great way to celebrate my birthday, fabric shopping with DH for new mystery quilt and later, dinner with a pitcher of margaritas. See you all Saturday.

    Usually all you have to do is post and you are automatically subscribed but if that doesn't work for you go to the top and click on thread tools then subscribe.

    If you get lost just hold your hand out and someone in the caboose will grab on to it.

    Will we have any time to get our fabrics together? Last times you gave us a couple of weeks to get it together. I'm happy to be doing this with you again!

    quilting kay and kboone, here are links to previous mysterys I created - click on the link to take you to see how they work.

    To answer the other questions, there will be a new thread posted on Saturday in the BOM section - look for JUDY'S 3RD MYSTERY QUILT TRAIN RIDE. Go there and you will find us, and that is where we will always be.

    As you can see from the comments, we have a lot of people who have done this train ride before and had a fun time.
