    OOOOOOOhhhhhh Judy, help. Here is a pic of my C fabric on my A fabric. I have only sewed one side and it is not cut and only finger pressed so I could show you. Not much difference. My question: I am pretty sure I shouldn't use this combo, can I use one of the other fabrics twice or should I pick a fabric not in the rest of the quilt? All my A's and other fabrics are cut and sewed. I will hold these in reserve till I hear from you.

    Ooooo they are close, aren't they?
    Florenjce, I went back and looked at your colors. Perhaps you could use another of your mid-range of blues? I think you could get away with adding a different blue. If not I'd definately use one of the blues again.
    Or you could audition a yellow fromf the flowers and see how that would look.

    quess.....what......did that message change in mid-air

    this is a very mysterious/mistivious train

    Jenni watch out for those geese, they peck you to pieces

    i confess to guesseing some but do not know which way geese fly (city girl)

    my best guess is the four 3 1/4 squares are for corners

    That message sure did change. It's a magic train. That only adds to the mystery.

    Thank you Judy. I will change it to something else then I will post a pic.

    I had gone in to edit it, you probably were reading the message when it changed. No ghosts in QB today.

    Very pretty colors, island

    Florence, great solution. Looks good.

    How is the rest of the flock coming together? I hear no honking whatsoever, wonder where they have gone.

    Wow everyone has great geese.. I finished my geese as promised and could not resist to pull out everything I have made to go with this mystery quilt and place it around... Im thinking I might be making some more geese to fly around in this quilt but Im not sure will have to wait to find out the conclusion of the mystery to see where to go next with it. My daughter would like it to be at least Queen size.. Ive never made anything that big so far. I have been extensively practicing using a Satin stitch to applique around the dragons The two larger ones are applique with a decorated stitch I was playing with on my Machine. Looks good but daughter thinks the Satin stitch would look "LIKE WOW" she said. LOL
    So doing a few more practice blocks and then Im gonna give the dragons a try. My understanding of my problem is not going around the curves fast enough so stitches get too thick. OMG there are so so so many curves on them dragons. Im a gluten for punishment.

    just made a tour through the cars and seeing all those geese is mind boggling. can't wait to see how they go together with the rest of the quilt. just goes to show that, no matter what your personal fabric preferences, everyone can make a beautiful quilt. keep up the good work all.

    So when this mystery first started I purposely set it up so posts would go to my hotmail account. so how come I've been following all the comments people have made but when the next step came out regarding making the flying geese, it did not get to Hotmail? I feel like some one "threw this Momma from the train". Not nice to upset this Mother's "Nature".
    And those geese are bound to be very noisy right now...it's mating season. You think its noisy now, wait til the babies hatch!

    Just noticed that the pictures that got all hugely wonky the other day are back to normal. At least one thing is fixed LOL

    Jenniky, That R&B quilt is going to be so striking.

    I hope someone opened my Canoe Ridge Cabernet for me so it is ready. And I'm happy to share because I don't need the whole bottle. Or maybe I do....I don't have to drive, I won't get a headache, if I'm quiet no one will notice me finishing it off.

    Well, I'm not sure where ALL the other geese went, but I did see some in the pond and some standing around in the field looking confused. I all saw where one was standing then took off near the haystack. (Wished I'd had my camera with me to take a picture of that.) So here is what this goose was doing this morning......

    So, after a morning out in the snow and watching/try to help the snow plow get unstuck, here's what I've accomplished (some of this from yesterday too.)

    I'm thinking the geese are going to fly around the center something like this. I'm also still adding to my scrap block to use on the back.....

    I'll add the left over hsts when I'm done making all 32 geese. If they are too rowdy I'll send them back outside.

    I'm leaving tomorrow morning, off find goose food. Geese feed? Will sprinkle a bunch for the birdies on my drive back.

    Anyway, off to L.A. to visit my daughter, eat Indian food at our favorite place, and can loquats. Have a nice weekend and I will see all of you on Tuesday morning.

    Foxflower, I wish you could send a little of that snow up to ND. Last year we flooded and this year is drought. Oh, Mother Nature!!!!

    Watching the "geese" but more interesting is the turkey vultures that are flying around here again. They are so awesome to watch.

    I have chocolate wine that I will share. Friend brought and now it's sitting in my refrig. Not crazy about it, but in a pinch....

    OH my goodness, that snow is GORGEOUS! to me anyway.. We barely had a showing this winter, I could have cried. You must live in the mountainous region to have that much snow. Looks like you live in the country, another one of my favorites..lol I am originally from NE Missouri and we always had lots of snow. AAAHHH good on' memories..

    I really like the colors in your blocks, good job.
