    If you have 35 different fabrics cut and only need 54, you won't notice duplicates if you spread them out over the 6 9-patch blocks.

    There is chocolate left, as it isn't on the train as yet. I am still cooking the vegetable soup. Anyone up for cornbread?

    Thanks - I didn't know how to do it either - had my ticket but didn't know what track to wait on!

    i am just addicted to judy's 3rd mystery pattern. i just picked up, like my 3rd quilt from the quilters. i do one set of colored blocks, lay them out, then usually tweak the 2nd to co ordinate. this last one was 4 blocks by 4 blocks, then the diagonal border and then another 5" border. i think the final measurement was 94 X 94.
    and i am sure this one will be ever bit as good. i made myself work on 'jane' blocks yesterday. before i started this one. welcome aboard everyone, i'm sure you will enjoy the ride.

    This is my first train ride, I don't have any food, candy or drink to bring, since I absolutely HATE to cook. LOL I'm not making any promises on getting it done, since I have about 20 other projects going at the same time, but will certainly try to keep up.

    Even though I haven't quilted #2 or finished putting together #3 (which got interrupted by four Christmas quilts), I'm in for this ride. I have lots of charms I can use. Thanks, Judy, for doing yet another one. This sounds like fun. For now, all I have is some leftover shortbread cookies to add to our table. My diet starts after New Year's Day!

    Evie,

    Have you determined which New Year's Day? There is always Chinese New Years which falls a little later, specifically after the train ride ends.

    sewnso, can't wait to see your finished #3 -- please post a picture. And so glad to hear you like the pattern so much. It was my favorite of the first 3 mysteries.

    pocoellie, food participation not a prerequisite, but you are welcome to snack on whatever is laid out in the club car! Glad you are along for the ride. And no rush to get it done, just add it to the list of to-do projects -- I don't like UFO, as I never seem to go back to them if I have labeled them as such. LOL

    Almost missed the train until Elisabrat reminded me last night! I was sewing on batik blocks. I need to get started on the cutting, whacking and sewing. I'll check in later

    Wow, nine pages and it's only the first day. When someone mentioned breakfast tacos I decided I better jump on. That was after I'd decided that I just couldn't because of other needs. We'll see what happens. Good thing this isn't one of those bullet trains that's past before you can even think. I love reading this thread. I too would like to have the carrot marmalade recipe. I've never had it and love carrots.

    Jaba and whitepine, so good to see you again! You're going to like this project, I think. I hope! I liked it enough to start on a light-weight king size one. Only deadline I've set for it is April, when I take the heavy winter quilt off the bed.

    Judy, love your pine avatar. I was thinking of doing a tree quilt sometime with all the different tree patterns I could find. But I also like the symetry of yours.

    I don't have oodles of 4-1/2" squares, but I have lots of scraps and an Accu Go 4-1/2" square die! No stopping me now! Can't wait!

    Thank you so much.
    This was called Jeweled Forest, from a magazine Nov-Dec 2011 and the wall hanging is 3 blocks wide by 4 blocks long, with another border around the sashing and inner border - that is the pix posted here.. I am going to keep it up year round, as I didn't use xmas prints, just all different batik scraps, and it was too much work to only hang for one month out of the year!

    I am so happy to find this thread, I had read and watched your other mysteries. They look like fun. I have never done a scrappy before so am happy to join this train. Now off to sort and cut some of my stash that just sits in the closet waiting for something like this,

    Looks like lots of fun, I just love scrappy! However, I've got too much going right now to start with you guys. I will keep all the clues and make it when I get a chance! And of course, I'll enjoy the ride with everyone. Love to read all the comments and see the results!

    dingle, zennia and Lstew, glad to have you join us.

    JeannieG, are you absolutely positively sure you cannot fit just one more teeny little project into your life?

    Found this board last night and would like to come along for the ride. A mystery quilt that is scrappy sounds like fun. I have lots of scraps and I am looking forward to making this quilt. Thanks for letting me tag a long.

    I think I can, I think I can, I think I can! Yep I can! Just got all my squares and rectangles cut out and was going to sew some together when.... I sliced my thumb with the rotary blade! dummy me was trying to get the lint and stuff off of it using my thumb. Not smart. I figured I better way for the bleeding to stop before handling any more fabric. Mine is going to be totally scrappy.

    I also love your avatar quilt. Do you have the name of the magazine? Even if I don't already have it, maybe the library does.
