    I'm going to look through my fabrics and see what I can come up with. This will be a first for me, but will hopefully get me motivated! Thanks for taking the time to do this.

    I just ordered 100 Fossil Ferns batik charms from Craftsy for $14. I am hoping they will work for this mystery project! What do y'all think?

    I can't wait for the 26th. I thought I was going to use batik charms, but then found some fabric I love that I might use. I already had the charms. I would have to buy the fabric. Hmmm. What to do. Guess I could do both right. LOL

    finished my mystery quilt---the black star shape in middle was crying for some attention. Added the butterflies to relieve that "black hole" effect and added a sleeve for hanging. So "Butterflies Dancing" is already to to grace my best friend's wall come her June Birthday.

I originally started out with the dragonfly & butterfly one I planned to make for a future great grandchild. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! It measures 50x60. The scrappy ones were spur of the moment ones that I just decided to use scraps from the last 2 baby quilts I had recently made. The scrappy bear one measures 42x51 & the scrappy Dora measures 43x51. All 3 I did incorporate the pinwheels made from the geese. This was such alot of fun...can't wait for the next one! Thanks for doing this, Judy!!! I have loved seeing everyone else's that has posted so far & can't wait for the rest of them to be posted. They all turn out so differently...
    All are now quilted & ready for a new home (yellow & teal dragonfly will be put away for a future great grandchild)...the scrappy throw is slightly altered. Happy to have completed all 4 before the new train got started!

    I changed my settings & saved...uploaded this from advanced...and got the little pics. Don't know what else to do...I don't like the small pics!

    Beautiful job Vicki. I still have 1/2 of my flying geese to finish.

    Vicki, those are wonderful. Very creative the way you put them together. I don't like the little pictures either and have been wondering why that is happening all of a sudden.

    Nice group of quilts, VickiM ... I particularly like the pinwheel corners! Nice touch!

    [QUOTE=whitepine;5156568]My silly geese decided to fly in a different formation. I'll probably bind it with the butterfly fabric because that is the only one I have enough of left over. I've named it The Mystery of the Butterflys. Thanks so much for the fun trainride, Judy, and also everyone else for the fun times in the club car. See you on the next trip.[ATTACH=CONFIG]329239[

    Whitepine, very pretty! I did not join this one, but am enjoying the photos! I may look up the clues, though, and do it anyway.

    Here is where I posted my mystery train quilt. I chose not to do the flying geese but instead added a couple more blocks and even made the borders directional. Plus my label turned out nice as well. My nephew should love it.

    WOW!! Your Mystery Train quilt couldn't have turned out any nicer. I really like what you did with it & I just know that your nephew will love it too. I am so glad that you shared with all of us, as I know that I love to see how these Mystery projects turn out. GOOD JOB!!
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    Here's what I finally came up with. I a 3rd square and borders to make this twin size. I used the flying geese scraps, as others did, to make the pinwheels. I copied somebody and set them into a border in opposite corners. Thanks for the idea! Now I have to figure out how to quilt it.

    Thanks ladies. It's for a little girl who loves purple and lime green. Well, these aren't lime greens, but I think it'll be close enough!
