    Clue # 2 is finished. Like the revised color wave better than the first one. I even have an idea is use those little triangles. These mysteries are great fun. Off to the club car.

    My Stash Buster lap quilt is now totally finished. I used some of the leftover 2 1/2" x 4" rectangles and a few of the 2 1/2" strips to make a scrappy binding.

    I used a Goodwill sheet for the backing and practiced my FMQ.

    Sulabug's mystery

    Well gang, here's another one finished! Sulabug sent it down to me for quilting. We both loved the blue for the stars & border.

    It looks like a summer garden with blue skies. So pretty. Mine still gets worked on, just a border to go.

    The quilt looks great, I am still deciding on the border on mine. It is next in line after I get the binding on lap quilt in progress.

    Judy thank you for the mystery. I donated mine to the school carnival. It is a pretty low income school so i wondered what it would bring. It was all made out of yard sale and fabric given to me. So I thought I would see how it went. The only thing I had in it was time and the cost of batting. It raised a good amount of money. They didn't keep track of it but they think $200 to $250. They were thrilled with it. The school principal won it and loves it so much it hangs in her office since she says she spends more time there than at home. Thanks for doing this.

    YAY, IT'S DONE!
    Now that the other projects are done I finally got a chanceto finish this one for me! I’m not a “scrappy”person at heart but this one may have changed my mind. As noted in an earlier post, I used scrapsfrom remnants left from my late mom’s sewing projects. The fabrics are old and older and of different content: cotton, blends, poly, tightly woven, looselywoven, etc., but they all seem to play well together. I like that! I used the remnants to make memory quilts for my three sisters and fournieces, and this quilt uses the true scraps. Mom’s remnants are pretty much gone. The quilt is doubly special because I pieced the top using my mom’s 1935Singer 15-90, the very machine on which I learned to sew. >>
    Thanks, again, Judy for a great pattern and the fun timewith some awesome ladies. I’m lookingforward to the next ride, whenever to get around to it.

    Evie, I agree, the fabrics really work. I like your interpretation of the of the edge with the larger blocks. Great job.

    I love all the quilts shown here! I'm almost afraid to show mine, but my DH loves it, so I guess it's mainly a man's quilt colors. Anyway, it's going to a wonderful couple we became great friends with in Wisconsin, and I think he'll claim it.

    Ligia, Judy's instructions (at posts #1, 351 and 634) called for using 4-1/2" scrap squares for 40" x 56" or 56" x 72" quilts. However, my squares are only 4", so my quilt is smaller, 50" x 62". Judy posted additonal instructions for 4" and 5" squares at #660.

    My stars are two-toned because I didn't have enough of either fabric to make them one or the other. And I didn't add a border because there is not enough of any of mom's fabrics for one and I didn't want to add new fabric.
