Mystery Quilt Train Ride

I am a member of an  on-line quilting forum and decided to join the other quilters on a mystery quilt train ride.   This "journey" has only just really begun and each week we are given a set of clues to work with.   The first week was deciding on three fabrics.      I found this quite a stressful process especially as I do not know what the end result will be.     We have the choice of making a tabletopper,  table runner - which is what I am making - or a quilt.    The clues will be the same for all three items just the amount of fabric will be different.  

I spent quite a few hours  auditioning several fabrics and finally narrowed  my choice down to the three fabrics below.

The second clue was make 12 HST's using fabric A & B.   Here are my HST's sewn, ironed and trimmed to 4 1/2" square.

Now all that I have to do is wait until Saturday - or in my case Sunday seeing that I am in the Land of Oz and the Board is in the USA - for the next clue.  Putting together what I have made so far is well short of a 45" runner so there appears to be a lot more blocks to be made.

Back soon with the next part of the mystery and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

Oh my! You are much gamer than I would be. I detest those mystery things. Right out of my comfort zone. Looking forward to your progress. I do love your fabric selection.
