    Yessssssssssss!!!! we nabbed her alright!

    OKSGlad .... Your LQS having the PC book, certainly was a sign and I'd sure as heck hope that you purchased the book! Oh I just knew you'd eventually give in!! So, did you buy any of the pony/farm fabrics today? Good way to celebrate having your y/e put together for the accountant! Think of it this way ... you can start late with me!

    Beautiful fabrics there ... I'm not normally a light fabric one, but I really do like that lighter set ..... I think I'm taking note, as remember, I'm supposed to be doing something more subdued and softer this year. Could I just steal that stash and use them?

    PokerDiva ... there's still people doing the FWS, so you won't be alone. I'm coming to the end of my blocks, and then the sashing, etc. The ladies have been really good with support, coaching and the all important ooohs and aaahhhs which have helped me keep at it. Whichever you choose to do ... you'll enjoy the experience! Be prepared to learn lots along the trails!

    Now my dilemma--Fabric choices. The first pic is my Kansas Troubles collection-large pieces and then small pieces. I had to get a couple more fabrics today if I'm going to use these.

    Oh Yeah, so glad you are joining us oksewglad! All that fabric is fabulous! Use what will make you happy to see in a quilt!

    "Oh was I supposed to buy the book?," she asks innocently. Of course I did!
    No didn't buy any pony/horse fabric, but found a great farm scene that has some work horses in it. Oh and a couple Diane Phalen pieces that are just so lovely.
    Thanks Jeanie--once I make a decision on fabric I will try to get started!

    Whew! thank goodness you had the sense to purchase that book!!
    But really now ... no fabric? *gasp*

    Now the real question is ... were there any Jerseys stabled at the LQS?

    And Ladies and Gent .... Good Night .... time to hit the hay!

    I made a decision. Going with the KT's. Why? The deciding factor is I have 4 yards of the large scale floral that is just aching to be used in a larger pattern to show it off. Also the large scale blue and cream needs a larger block as well. They are just too pretty to cut up into smaller pieces.
    Will be saddling up my horse pretty soon. Have some other quilting committments to meet. QE and I plan on working side by side through our journey. Aren't quilt buddies, great?

    Thanks!!! I need to check my settings. Your way IS easier!!!!!!

    Lovely! Lovely! Your fabric is going to make one lovely quilt!
    I'm looking forward to sewing side-by-side with you
    OKSGlad ... well at least virtually side-by-side!

    Carsey ... I'm sure you'll get it figured out!!

    Re:The FWS Pony Club...Copyrite


    Hi Everyone, It has been brought to my attention that there was a problem on another site regarding a request for a COPY of the FWS Pony Club Quilt cd and any info pertaining to the book. This is a big NO NO and will not be tolerated here.

    Quilters are known to be a very generous people but we must draw the line when it comes to making copies, etc for others who will not purchase the book.

    Any word written/copied by me from Laurie's book or the files on her site has been given permission to me from Laurie to do so with encouragment. I also saved the emails documenting this.

    I just wanted to clarify my position on this matter as there has been some veiled reference as to whether or not I can do so.

    Now that I have that off my chest... let's get back to what we do best...Keep on Quilting!!!

    Honchey/Anne
