    Me Too ready to hop aboard. Like several I have been attempting to get my stash in order ROTF but I can't get up! I've cut 2" 3-1/2" 5" squares and 2-1/2" strips. Pressed, folded and stacked. And that was only 3 tubs - way to go before I sleep or miles to go before (Mr. Frost) and not Jack but Robert

    This was Judy's first scrappy. The first three used yardage, so the new one could be either. Oh, the suspense! My scrappy is still on the machine being FMQ. I have rotator cuff problems in both shoulders so I don't stay with it too long. Thank goodness I have another machine set up for sewing so I'm not having withdrawal symptoms from quilting.

    It's going to hard to send it off, but it says it is to be Quilt of Valor for a female soldier. Everyone who passes through loves it.

    I think I will join this train ride too. I have not a lot of scraps but I think I am able to manage it. This'll be my first "Mysterie quilt along" and I am very anxious for it.

    I think maybe paintmejudy is on Mountain Time, so some of us will be up and waiting for it to be posted -- no alarm setting needed here.

    Haha none if us are patient. We'll get no sleep tonight with the waiting. My clock says nearly 30 more minutes until tomorrow.....

    Judy probably won't be posting the first clue until 9 AM Central, which will be 8 AM where she lives. Possibly earlier if she decides to get up early.

    Do I hear a whistle yet? Maybe it'll come if I leave to get some coffee with a thimbleful of Baileys in it?
    Life may not be the party we planned for,but while we are here we should dance!

    Ok, train riders, here we go, getting ready to board the train and start our new trip. Click on this link, and like Dorothy clicking her heels together, we will be there in an instant.

    Thank goodness for kids who are better at computers than me. I'm finally trying to post my version of this quilt. The stars are an old Thimbleberries print with more of a cream/gold cast than what shows in the pics. I'm definitely going to make more of these!! Thank you Judy!

    Laura - I really like how yours turned out! I did a solid border also, just not the same as my sashing, and then added piano key border around that. Haven't decided if I'm going to do another continuous border or not. If I can find a suitable print I might.

    Thanks Mom-6 and Deb. I've always been a beige/cream background kind of girl and am trying now to use more color for backgrounds. I think I'm going to use red for the sashing and white or gold stars in the next one. I have a nice red piece I bought in Colorado at Harriet Hargrave's store 12 YEARS ago!! I remember the time frame because it was when DS#1 had just gotten his learner's permit and wanted to practice driving in the mountains! Yikes, what a trip!

    Wow, hadn't thought about all that until I typed red fabric, lol. Maybe it's time for bed. :-)

    Augh! I didn't do this Stash Buster Mystery, but love the look of it. Could anyone be kind enough to list the post #s of the clues? Sure hope so...wow...it's a lot of pages to go through! Thanks! :-)

    It only took a couple of months (and the arrival of Spring Break), but here's my top.



    Now I'll have to go check out the other thread!

    Loved seeing all the pictures of finished tops! Thank for sharing, everyone!

    Thank you, RT! I was just nuts trying to find the posts for clues. I'm a RT, too! Again, thanks! Life got in the way of that mystery train, but it looks so nifty when done.
