    Hey Scrappy Mystery Train ladies. I did it!!! All 23 tops finished. Here are the last three and if you want to see them all, I made a Grandma Quilt album in my profile. There's a link in my signature line below. Each quilt is named for the grandchild that will receive it. You see they called me back to Idaho the end of September to care for my MotherInLaw who had taken a turn for the worse. While we were there she picked which quilt would go to each grandchild. She passed away October 4. Exactly eleven weeks after her sweetheart passed. Isn't life crazy? And so precarious.

    I have to thank Judy again for this pattern. It was just what I needed, just when I needed it. All the quilts are so wonderful and the kids are all excited to receive them. (I promised them for Christmas.)

    Checked out your album and what nice quilts. The legacy of your Mom picking them out for each grandchild is wonderful!!

    Sheri, What a great job you did. It will be one of those important family stories that will be handed down with the quilts, maybe for many generations. I love that she picked out where each quilt went because she saw something in each quilt that reminded her of that person. It is a good pattern, thanks Judy for introducing it.

    Sheri, all the quilts are beautiful! Your taking on the task (bet it really was a "task" when done with so much love) is to be admired and I'm sure the grandkids will cherish them. I've enjoyed being on this journey with you. Thanks!

    You have all made me feel so good. Thank you. I still have 22/23 to sandwich and quilt. I'm thinking by Christmas my FM skills will be very much improved. As soon as my grass is dry again I plan on laying them in the front yard and taking a picture of them all together. Then the mailing will begin. I'll show y'all a pic when I get it taken.

    I just finished viewing all of your lovely quilts! What a wonderful feat! Everyone will love and treasure their quilt made from
    their Grandmother's stash. You are to be commended for accomplishing such a loving gift to your Mother-in-Law.

    Don't worry Judy, we'll be patient ... sort of! LOL

    I haven't unearthed my machine or cutting table since the holidays ... no hurry here.

    Congrats on the new machine, just sorry it had to be a breakdown that did it!

    Better late than never, right? Had these ready to finish for a niece's twins and they got to the bottom of my "to do" bin. Judy, I loved this mystery and have another one started for a quick gift later when needed. The other little crib quilt is just another scrappy.
