    I have been reading and sewing all along on this train ride and have enjoyed every minute. I haven't taken any pics at this point. It has been fun to view everyones fabric choices and progress, step by step. I am ready for the next step on May 9th. I am so glad I found QB and signed on as a member and a passenger on this train. Thanks to everyone.

    I sure had my fun with this. And half the fun is seeing how people interpret things, material, ideas, etc. And how something that seems so simple can look so different, one from another. I love every bit of it.

    montiealma glad you are enjoying the ride. This mystery is now complete so, if you've been following along, you can finish up with borders or extra blocks or however you want. We'd love to see pics of your version.

    May 9 is the date we all start on a completely new mystery. Hope you join the fun again.

    And welcome to the board.

    This was my first mystery quilt and I too learned a lot. Never had made flying geese before, nor pinwheels. It was a great ride, and the added fun of being on a train that could stop wherever it needed to, and with a very active club car, made it all the better. I have my thumb out to catch the next ride. (Do trains stop for hitchhikers? Bet this one does.) Again, thank you so much, Judy.

Im not one to want to offend so I will defer from doing this in any mystery quilt project again. And I realized I had done it here on this thread also. Im sorry. But as for the rest all I have to say is................................ IS IT May 9th yet... lol I cant wait for the next train to leave the station.. Ha ha.. Hugs everyone..
    I don't think it is bad sport. Some groups have a separate thread or area for those who want to make guesses. That way anyone who doesn't want to see, doesn't have to look. I don't mind their guesses because they are usually wrong anyway. I love following the discussion. It makes me feel like I am not alone all of the time.

    It isn't May 9th yet, but it is the 1st! It is getting closer for you.

    Oh, I'm not patiently waiting for May 9th. Have found some great fabrics downstairs and now I really want to start something new. Just because the last mystery is sitting here looking at me, means nothing. Can't come up with a quilt design yet.

    Need the club car today. So it must be 5:00 somewhere and I'll start down to the club with a couple bottles of wine that we purchased from a silent auction at the woodturner's workshop. Still have snacks also.

    See you soon.

    Oh, is that chocolate wine? If not, will have husband grab a couple bottles while he is out of town. That makes it even better, tastes so good you don't realize you drank the whole bottle.

    I am guilty ladies. Mine is all cut up and waiting for me to sew. I did not share any photos, not many comments, but loved the chatter and enjoyed the fun you had. I was the wall flower. I will work hard to get mine done because was using this for a lap quilt for graduation present for nephew. When all the big fun was happening, I was making a western diamond split star quilt for sil. Used those fabric leftover for this one. Will do my best to sew sew sew and get it posted.

    WOW, WOW!!! I haven't ever seen this tech. before, but I best check into it. Love the colors, Sunliten.

    Yes I have some choc wine. Also some Chokecherry, apple and grape. Was so fun to walk into the silent auction area and see pictures of the wine by the Flanders Charolais Winery. This gentleman was a friend of my father's when they both raised Charolais cattle in the 60's and 70's. He is now a retired farmer and a wood turner. Sent the "pictures" (I kept the wine) to my father last week.

    Jen, I have 2 boxes of crackers that I can bring to go with the cheese also. Oh goodness, I can already hear the chatter. New friends to get to know.

    Take care.

    I made some homemade rhubarb/raspberry pie I can bring that also. I suppose forks, napkins, and plates would be appropriate as well. I have not had apple wine and love the chokecherry. That one brings back memories from my childhood when mom and dad made wine. Yum! and make sure there is a rail to protect us from falling off, that would be from the laughter of course.

    You ladies make me so hungry! I am so bad, there goes my diet right out the window with the Chocolate wine, and hats off to the inventor of Chocolate Wine~

    My Mystery quilt, which I was going to use as a table topper, it finished out to be 36 X 36, ended up going to Oregon as a Baby quilt. I never would have thought that Black and white and Turquoise would be good colors for a Baby quilt. But it is, and happily wanted by Mom and Dad.

    I now have to make a quilt for Big brother. He is two and really into John Deere, so I guess I am going to be making a John Deere quilt. I sure am glad they have the fabric available everywhere.

    I am excited about the May 9th date too! I will be heading up to Sacramento for a wedding, on a Train no less! I made the dress for the Bride and the Maid of Honor with out any fittings~ so say a prayer for us that everything fits! The Wedding is on Friday so I have all day Thursday to make adjustments... I love living on the edge of Sanity... This is seriously, ok hopefully, my last wedding dress... naw, I am sure I will make more if asked, hard to turn them down!

    But when I get back home It will be nice to relax with a Bottle of "chocolate wine" and a new Mystery quilt. btw where do I find it?
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Count me in for anything with rhubarb if there's enough! Oh, yummers!! I'm ready for the next train, although I haven't figured out how I want to finish the first mystery yet. There have been some beautiful finishes. Love the chatter and love the sense of community. I'll bring my homemade applesauce if anyone's interested! See you May 9 for sure!!

    Have not heard of Picture Pieced; Sunliten Smiles... Im off to search it on the web and also the book you mention by Cynthia England. I love the fabrics...and such a pretty name..Julia. A new grandchild how exciting! Coopah do you have any homemade applebutter...I so miss having that.

    I'm taking an unplanned trip to Kentucky with my daughter. She promised me if I rode along we would stop at the Quilt Museum. She knows I have been wanting to see it.. so how could I say no. LOL SEW packing up some fabric scraps, needle and thread... she said no to me taking the sewing machine and my stash and cutting board and.... well you get the idea. No internet where we are going so will not be in contact until late Sunday..or Monday. Will catch up with you all on the next stop.
    Have an awesome day!

    You all all so fabulous, your support of my mystery has been overwhelming to me, and I just love all the postings that have been made, love the fact that you are still coming around to chat and to post pictures. I know that next train ride will be just as much fun. Can't wait -- one week from today! Looks like there will be a lot of returning passengers, as well as many new faces.

    Marytodd it will be under the blocks of the week and month, titled A New MYSTERY QUILT Train Ride! Hop on-board anytime

    And jennify, I make apple butter every fall, will bring a jar on the net train. Also will bring some pumpkin butter for every one to try-- almost as good as apple butter, but less calories. (I make both in a crock pot -- no worries about burning the fruit as it cooks down) All the chocolate and cheese we are eating, the pumpkin butter may save us a few pounds!

    Hey, I missed the party in the club car yesterday but I'll bet there are plenty of leftovers. Sunliten, sure would like to be sitting next to you in the club car and learn how to do such beautiful handwork.

    Sunliten, what a wonderful present. You were a good mom because son learned giving back!!!!

    Judy, haven't ever had pumpkin butter. (Pumpkin pie is my all time favorite!!!!!) Yes, with all these snacks, my thighs have gotten bigger. Maybe they will let us run beside the train for awhile to get some exercise. However, maybe we'll have to have a rope to hang on to. Jen, I have an apple tree. You can come and get some apples this fall. I'm usually tired of harvesting when the apples need picking.

    Rhubarb, oh no. Was just talking about it the other day. Wondering if I should make some jam while it is ready. Haven't done anything about it yet. Making jam for the Standing Rock Reservation Christmas baskets.

    Well ladies, I have some pillowcases that are staring at me. Ordered some new quilting books, but they didn't come in the mail today, so I will have to sew on these instead.

    Take care - I'll be waiting for the train to stop. By the looks of my packing so far, I'll need a bus to get me there.

    Jenniky, I only make applesauce, sorry. Keep your eyes open on your trip and you may find apple butter. It's good on toast. Enjoy your trip. Are you "in" for the next mystery?

    How wonderful!!! You are blessed!! Where in So Cal are you? I'm in San Marcos (San Diego)!!

    I'm still working on my mystery-need to add a border and then quilt and bind it! I love how it looks! (will post a picture soon). Even though I haven't finished this one, and have more Boom Swap blocks to make, as well as several other projects in the works, I do plan to take the next Mystery Train with you all!! Wouldn't want to miss all the fun in the club car!

    Burbank here......I have a Godson/Nephew in San Marcos with a wonderful large family and my Sister and Brother-in-law will be visiting them for a couple of weeks, later this month.....my Daughter and I hope to join them for a day and "visit" Amidon, and Rosies and quilt- in -a-day also! do not have all the details worked out. Mini quilt run.

    Every time I think about the gift from my Son and Daughter-in-law, my eyes get misty all over again.
