    Tell us about your blocks, Materialgirl, we have good imaginations. Oh, and come have some of this spinach and waterchestnut spread on these tiny sourdough rolls......goes great with this excellent white wine.

    Being that your train got you to Chicago ... then keep on it and head to cross into Canada at Port Huron (Michigan)/Sarnia (Ontario) ...... then stay on the train heading towards Toronto and you can go right past my home about an hour before Toronto!!!

    That sounds so good. I think we should have some chocolate with that and maybe a bottle of red (sweet) wine. I have a recipe for "Danger Bars" and I will smuggle some on. But if someone else wants to bring M & M's and such - go for it.

    Oh that sounds good. But I think we need some chocolate also. I have a recipe for "Danger Bars" and I will make it and smuggle it along. I love red wines, that might be an idea. Of course we will need wine glasses to go with our celebration.

    Judy, my friend came from CA last summer and they brought their own pillows, so if you have a favor one, bring it along.

    I'm hoping that ND is on the route somewhere or else I will drive and join you.

    Yup, sure does, but we have 2 clues to go and a border around only 1 of those. So, I'm thinking the our finished block will be a bit different. That's a good one to bookmark for making a bunch of these though.

    Yes, I am aware of that ... for those who are making it as a quilt, it might be inspiration for them.
    They may or may not want the border on the quilt blocks.

    LOVE the idea of the Mystery Train being in the style of J.K. Rowlings. Steaming along, picking us all up, stopping at wonderful LQS whenever we need another scrap.

    Foxflower, that's a neat 'exra' block you made out of the scraps. I was wondering what to do with them but didn't want to use any scraps until I as sure they wouldn't be needed. Now I'm inspired to come up with something.

    Oh my goodness never saw the picture you posted QuiltE -- in fact I had never seen the block - just a single with the one star - until about 6 weeks ago and thought it would be a good mystery. Boo hoo I'm sad, thought I had some up with a good idea! Oh well, the rest of the quilt is my very own idesign. But glad I got this clue posted so you all didn't see it and spoil the surprise for yourselves.

    Did not sew the 'scraps' together yet, they look cute arranged on the cutting mat, but i think they might still be needed for the 28 x 28 'block'.........do not know the 'ending'...... i luv mysteries

    Thank You, Judy ..................................we are having so much fun ! ! ! ! ! ! !

    Thinking of making a second one using western fabrics :)

    Everyone that has posted have awesome blocks. Here is my block after clue number #3 and yes I think I would of chose the red for my focus fabric but it was a mystery and my daughter picked which she wanted for the focus fabric.. She is happy...so Im happy. But I definitely am going shopping for some western fabrics and doing another block for me.

    I like how this block has turned out so far and went through the Halloween fabrics last night for a second version. As soon as the tote lid was opened 2 felines came to help. What a surprise. Right on top was the perfect fabric and I have the co-ordinating fabrics for it, even the lime green. Are you intrigued yet?

    I'm grinning like an idiot and wish I didn't have to work today, nor do my work out tonight. I want to play with the second version of this block. It's going to be killer.

    Here is a teaser.

    West coast of British Columbia. So, waaay behind the times.

    Don't look for the step 1-3 today. Hopefully, tomorrow AM, if I can slip away for a bit after dinner tonight. Most likely Friday AM.

    Version 2 is going to be a lot brighter than version 1.

    That it is and that it does.

    Right now, BC is getting colder than usual temperatures and threats of snow yet back east is getting balmy weather. Who'd a thunk it?

    I'd say you guys back east are on lunch by the time I get to work but I start at 6AM so that isn't the case. You are just on your mid-morning coffee break and some of you are just getting up! lol

    Hey ... do those spiders have glow in the dark eyes? FUN!!!!!!!!

    Yup ... balmy beyond belief ... more like mid-July weather at 27C/81F yesterday with a humidex of over 30.
    Hamilton had a smog alert yesterday!!

    ICK ICK ICK

    While nice weather is nice ... this is not so ... and kind of scary what we'll get as a backlash in the next month or so!

    your mention of hamilton reminds me of the year we lived near there. being from northern california it was really different weather. snow in the winter and the humidity in the summer. many an august day with over 90% humidity. wow.
