    Your batiks are spectacular! I have lots of batiks but I tend to hoard them so I don't have many scraps. I'm going to have to remedy that situation so I can make one like yours!

    Thanks Judy for being the mystery train engineer and for all the hard work you do for us to have fun and lovely quilts. My husband has declared that this quilt will be living with us and not finding a new home. haha.

    Hope you have a wonderful time on your vacation, Judy.

    That batik is beautiful. I love your idea of the small 4 patch, bet the stars would have blended it too much. I might have to look at all my batiks and start another one. That's just what I need to do, keep myself occupied. I tried really hard to cram myself in Judy's suitcase, but she packed way to much stuff in there. Couldn't even get my foot in let alone my _ _ _ _ . Guess I have to stay home. Have fun Judy get rested and refreshed, you're going to have a wonderful time.

    Hope it is one of those suitcases where you can zip around to expand.....because.....I am thinking there are fabrics produced in Costa Rica. If not you could just mail the laundry home...giggle...I almost did that once.

    I finished my quilt top today. Excuse the coloring. I had the bedroom light on, and the flash didn't go off. Evidently, camera thought it had enough light.

    I have finished the 3rd clue, now I am putting on some borders and then I will post a picture tonight before I go to bed.

    Love the quilts I am seeing.

    Lots of different scappy looks.

    Sewed on mine this afternoon, got the rows all done. Hopefully sew them together tomorrow. Had to cut way more fabric for the stars since I decided to make it bigger. Thought I'd never get done sewing those squares on the ends. Not real sure if I'm going to use rectangles don't really want to cut that many more. May just finish the star ends and put solid fabric between them. We'll see how it looks.

    Jaba - what I did was cut rectangles of the sashing fabric to fit in all the spots where the star points were to truly finish out the look of the design. That way I didn't need more miscellaneous rectangles. Love how it came out too. Wish I could do a picture but ones on my phone don't seem to work.

    Here is my Mini train Scrappy Nine Patch quilt. Before I added the borders it measured 56 x 72. I added 5 inch borders so now it is 66 x 82. Fits my queen size bed. Here are several pictures of it. And mom is trying to claim it for her. It will be fore my bed not hers, she has a king size bed.


    Thank you again Judy.

    Been loving everyone's quilts! Coming along great. I hopped on this train while I was in Seattle taking care of my mom. I had a few sewing goodies with me and did my 9-patches there. I didn't have enough material to continue, but now that I am back home I got the chance to make more progress. I am not sure what I'll do for the borders because I am out of all the fabrics I used in the 9-patches. Will post finished project when i figure that out.

    Cindy, it turned out great! Makes me wish I had used black for my sashing. Too late now. I plan to add borders to mine too.
    Sapphire, I love the pink and white in yours. Really sets it off nicely.
    I was thinking about making mine twice as big so I cut out more squares for 12 more 9 patches. Now I will just make a whole new quilt out of those. Maybe I can get it done at my quilt retreat this week.

    Junie, you probably have a stitch that is similar that you could substitute. I think your machine is a twin sister (fraternal!) of my Elna Excellence and there are several stitches that I think would work.

    You have to change the mode, and then choose the stitch you want to use. Look at the stitch sample card you have for your 6600. I am going to use Mode 3, number 56 or 66 not sure yet which one I will use.

    Hope you figure it out.

    I have tried several of the stitches on my machine and they are pretty but they don't stretch out like I think they should. They would be nice on miniature quilts. I will keep on trying. thank you for your reply

    Cindy, your border fabric is PERFECT! Beautiful quilt! I used a dark brown sashing and think after seeing your quilt will add it as a border. I like the way it frames the design.

    Saphire Rae, I love the pink stars with your brights! Many of the fabrics in my pieced border were not in the 9 patches but they all seemed to mix in. The next one I'm going to do will be light sashing with pink stars. :-)

    Finished clue 3 and have added the sides. I really like it but am now undecided on wether to add borders or not to frame the quilt and what colour? I was thinking maybe the blue like the stars. What do you all think?
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    I unexpectedly ended up making a third quilt. We rearranged the furniture and moved our bed to another room. Since we sleep days, we use heavy curtains to block out the daylight, and the previous curtains didn't match the new room at all. DH suggested I make a small quilt and hang over the window. I had some blue blocks already made for a charity quilt, so I grabbed some of them and quickly threw one together using the mystery quilt pattern.

    My quilting machine had been stored away in another part of the house, and I haven't been able to use it in ages. We moved it to our "old" bedroom, and I'm (hopefully) going to attempt to quilt the mystery quilt in just a bit. If all goes well, and if I don't fall over from exhaustion, I'm hoping to hang the new "curtain" before we go to bed this morning. (I also made a bunch of make-ahead freezer dinners this morning, and am still recovering from the flu, so I'm flat wore out! LOL!)

    I'll finish up the other two mystery quilt tops this week. I'm loving how everyone's turned out! This is a very handy pattern. I may try to use it for some of my Boomerang blocks.
    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here. Please note that I'm usually unavailable on weekends, but I'll get back to you on Monday.

    Well, I may not be able to quilt it this morning after all. I can't find the bag of accessories and tools and bobbins and needles that came with the machine.

    Not a very good picture (bad lighting), but here it is. The yellow is a nice sunny yellow color, and the green is "richer" than it looks. The camera flash washed the colors out, I guess. Still no luck on finding the accessories to my quilting machine.

    I don't have a programmable Janome, but this tutorial might help those who do program in a serpentine stitch:

    Seeing all those lovely quilts has spurred me on to finish this mystery. I keep putting it off as I'm making another couple of quilts, but these are so lovely. I've decided to add another row of blocks to make a nine block quilt instead of 6. Hope I can work out the patched border/ stars around it.

    jaba, just posted my batik table runner in the new picture thread. Made it with 3-1/2" blocks, but is a bit skimpy. Didn't measure, just measured that the 4-1/2" would be too big. Could have used another 9-patch. Once again the old "measure twice cut once" comes into play! Oh well.

    Hmmmm sunlite, what kind of fabrics?
