    Oh, you are so brilliant! I started putting my 3rd train ride together and discovered I had mixed up the last step and put the wrong colours together. So a frogging I will go. Can you say "ripit, ripit, ripit"? THEN I will follow your lead and work on them both at once.

    This looks like it is going to be another hoot of a train ride. Love the comradery! Can't wait to see those 9-patch squares start to show up! I love scrappy, it really is a favorite of mine, and glad to see some of you who have never tried a scrap quilt join in with us.

    I would like to do this.

    I have a question, Judy I have a ton of blue/yellow scraps that would be perfect for this. Would that work if I had a deep blue that reads solid for A and a white on white for B (or vice versa) if my scraps for the other is blue/ yellow?

    I doubt that I'll be able to join in but I'll be following this thread just to see what you all come up with. I'm hoping to buy an Accuquilt GO which would help greatly in cutting the 4.5" squares. I need all the help I can get with my bad back.

    Just got home from dialysis cant wait to start. A bunch of 5" squares I can cut down no problem! Oh goody another project.. think I will go with the small one this way I can get it done in the three week period. I have never gone true scrappy this will be a challenge for me.. I sort colors and such so its scraps but color based lol..

    Ok need a low phosphorus snack um.. pretzels without salt! a small handful anyone? a tiny apple? are you as excited as me? i am skipping the snack. eat two for me please. I have to cut it down by 30 percent. ugh thought I was doing good too bad bad brat.

    i havent finished train ride #2 much less started on train ride # 3. but I love scrappy quilts and Paintmejudy always gives us such beautiful instructions for pleasing results. so i shall blunder along behind the train--eventually it will slow down enough for me to jump aboard.

    Janie, yes, blue and yellow scraps would work very well. If it were my quilt, I would use the dark blue for the A color and the light for B.

    Woo hoo, Dotty, so glad to see you!

    Sustraley - if you are undecided as to size, remember, for the lap you will be making twice the number of blocks (and it is all scrapp, lots more where that came from, right?) so if you like the way 6 of them look and you have enough of the A and B you can easily make 12 for the lap. I have decided I am going to make a king quilt for my bed -- going to find the thinnest, lightest weight batt I can (probably the junkiest batt Joanns carries LOL) and make a summer quilt. I figure I need 4 times the number of things made for the small quilt.

    Elisabrat -- I call that controlled scrappy LOL

    Roseirish, so glad you are here again.

    Gingerpie, grab a bunch of scraps and dive into the pool!

    I think it's funny that as I read the first clue to this scrappy train ride, I am actually riding a real life train back home. Visited for the holidays and I have tons of charm squares just itchin' to be used up.

    I'll bring some Tangelo jam, since my husband decided to buy a bushel for just the two of us! (gasp)

    ok I am cutting away have 30 of each so far from my oddest scraps and will surely make it through the other oddballs before I sneak into the precuts. that is too easy lol unless I go for a bigger quilt. I have to say I am having a small corrinary doing this guys. THEY DONT MATCH argh! its like oh hell no your not adding that to that pile oh nope nope no ducks no other fabric with novelty nope nope and oh no vwbugs? not happening... so what is wrong with me? am I alone here on the panic attack? this is like me taking a bungy jump thing not in this lifetime.. so pat my back would you and tell me it wont look like barf when I am done? knees are shaking.. help!

    Running, running, sprinting, just jumped on the train. Hanging onto the caboose with one hand (and holding onto about 7 UFOs to quilt and 10 other projects to start in the other hand...).

    It's all good. I am in. I will start tomorrow when I get home. I definitely have the scrappy fabrics to use but need to decide on A and B. I will pick those later. This should be quick and fun.

    I can't believe I'm done with step one already! Of course, I put #3 train on hold as I'm either going to have to make all new blocks from the last set or play frog. I do love scrappy and not matching is just fine with me -- I have serious concerns about my ability to match anyway. I have a bunch of the 2.5" ones cut out, but forgot how many, so will check the instructions later. Will decide on colour A & B when I see where we are going with this.
    Oh, forgot to add I have mulled wine in the club car. The chicken and dumplings were delish -- thanks to whoever bought them. And YES I would like the carrot marmelade recipe.
