    I added 4 inch borders so that I could use 4 leftover four patch blocks in the corners. I set two goals for January, making a quilt for a graduating grandson (one of three this year) was the first one. Thanks Judy for helping me meet one of my goals!
    Love your quilt! I'm very partial to chocolate & tourquoise.

    Irish, the loops were taught in a quilting class i had taken about 5 years ago. those showing up, don't look exactly like it was taught tho. must have been getting tired. one loop is suppose to be on one side of the 4" strip, then have a nice curve to the other side for the next one to lay next to it. maybe someone has a better pic than mine. on 2nd thought, i relooked. they are okay.

    Cindy, i like your black, it looks nice the way you did it.

    Thats the one I always use to download pictures, never noticed before that there really is a tree in it!

    Vicki, you took scrappy to a whole new level. Finishing blue makes the stars stand out. Is the binding going to be scrappy?

    Everyone's tops are looking so great! How much fun has this been? Love that they are all so different from such a simple pattern. Judy sure did pick a winner and we all did an excellent job of making it our own!

    Everyones quilts are looking so good. I am hoping to layer and quilt mine later this week so it doesn't become another UFO. I think I am going to donate it to the school carnival. Sewnso I like your loops. I was thinking of doing a circle of feathers in the 9 patches(that is what I am currently practicing) and maybe I will do the loops in the sashing. I am thinking of signing up for one of the FMQ classes on Craftsy. Everyone keep the pictures coming. I enjoy seeing all the different ones.

    I'm so excited to report I'M FINISHED!!!

    Remember I said I was making quilts for all my MIL's 23grandchildren and 6 children: well, Here is number 1 or 29...I think I'll count backwards so I know how many I have left... I'm weird that way I know.

    It measures 55"x70". I used 100% Grandma's scraps. Well, I cut 4.5" squares out of her yardage. And yes, the backing/binding is in fuchsia. I've got to use it sometime, and it was in her closet, so this one is the winner of the fuchsia award. (I have enough fuchsia for one more quilt.) I did all the quilting on my Viking Topaz30. My first attempt at quilting!!! It was really scary, but I practiced on an old pillow case first. I did outline and swirling in the stars, free motion in the 9patches, and a heart/flower/heart on the sashes. It was my second time to do mitered binding. It washed up really nicely. I used two scrap pieces of Hobbs cotton batting that I zigzagged together. I really like it a lot and hope it's received well from one of the Grandchildren.

    I have 28 to go and I am so tempted to just make them all in Judy's design. It was so fun and easy. I can make them look different by changing up the sash. I will label all the Grandma Quilts "From Grandma's Closet". All the family knows what is/was in her closet. Until Aunt Sheri cleaned it out...

    Thank you Judy, for this great GREAT mystery!

    sheri, beautiful.
    mean, i took one of craftsy's quilting classes. or at least i started it, just before i broke my shoulder/arm. it never expires.--cheap also, i thought. was thinking, since i had the 2nd computer downstairs, that i should finish it.
    hope all is well with you.

    Not sure yet...depends on what I decide to use for the backing...may have to add a 2 1/2" border around the quilt first so I don't cut off any of the star points with binding.

    thanks! I should try a craftsy class. My motto for my next 28 quilts is "It all puckers in the wash" Not even near perfect quilting, but I'm thinking by the time I finish all my quilts, I might improve... lol

    SheriR, your quilt is beautiful -- especially the fuschia backing! I haven't gotten very far on my quilt, but I'm making mine using squares cut from remnants from my late mom's sewing projects. I'm keeping this one for myself so I'm only working on it between other stuff I'm doing. Are we always the last recipients of our own endeavors?

    Evie, what you say is true. I gift myself last. LoL I think it's so sweet you can make a quilt that will mean so much to you. Enjoy the process! And please remember to share your finish with us.

    OH I discovered something else about loading pictures. Maybe only my machine that does it. I have to load the picture first. Then type what I want to say. If I do that in reverse....type my message first.....then upload it won't work. Don't know why but that is how it works for me. Maybe that is how it will work for others too. Don't know but thought I would throw in my 2 cents worth.
    Isn't it amazing how all our quilts look so different. I love this pattern and I love all the pictures of everyones quilt. Just amazes me.

    I can load pictures anywhere i want - before, in or after text. I do find that if it loads in the text and i don't want it to, I can't move it.

    Everyone's quilts look great. I will try and post a picture of mine this weekend if it is sewed together. It is all up on the design wall and I am doing some each day. Judy, thanks for a great ride and pattern. I think I will be making some more of these. Didn't seem to use up much of the stash........

    I'd be done if I had a personal presser. Every time I need more pieces they are on the ironing board. I haven't used much stash either, but I've sure made a mess trying to find the scraps I want.

    Wow, I'm really impressed with all the progress made. The quilts look absolutely fantastic, kudos and a round of applause to all! So, now I am off to see if I can come up with something to stymie you for the the next mystery. See you the end of February. PM me if any questions, I may not be coming back to this thread for a while.

    I am still cutting. Needed more 4 1/2 inch blocks since I decided to go with the large. We were supposed to have a UFO today, but the ice cancelled it and kept me home where cutting space is at a premium. I will have to see if I can get into town early next week to do some cutting. I really want to finish this in the next couple of weeks.

    Love the fuschia backing. I like to make my backs fancy like that. I try to use up some of the scraps from the front in my back. I was going to layer mine last night but I seem to be having math problems. My back is a few inches short so I will need to add another strip to it. I have been trying to work on my feathers FMQ so I think I will do round feathers in the 9 patches. Yes once a quilt is washed it puckers up and hides a lot of FMQ mistakes. I also have found that FMQ with a varigated thread hide mistakes too.
    I am looking forward to the next mystery train ride. My stash is out of control and needs to be used up. Evie you are right we always think of ourselves last. I have been quilting for 8? years or so and have never made a quilt for myself. The quilt in my avatar is finally mine. I am waiting for it to come back from the longarmer. Them I will nap under my own quilt for once. Everyone in my family has a quilt, now I do too. If we don't take and make time for ourselves no one seems to notice.
