    JeanieG .... great selection of fabrics. With your gorgeous FWS quilts, I'm sure this is going to turn into another stunner.


    Here's my base fabric. I bought it in the summer on a super sale, thinking it'd be a backing for a cute kids quilt. I haven't had novelties/kids fabrics, and started to sweat it out when everyone started talking about the FWSPC til I remembered that I had this. It's going to be my base fabric. I've since found a piece of batik that is a match to the background in the print. My plan for now is that the print or batik will be in every block, with assorted other fabrics (some new and some from my stash) that coordinate. So it'll be a somewhat organized/controlled scrappy, I guess?

    I went thru the book..just the blocks ..last night. ...some of them are doozies. lots of inset seams ... I think I'm going to english hand piece the first one as it reminds me of the hexagon grandmas flower garden quilt. I will cut some freezer paper for the printer and use the pping pattern then cut it apart. A little more work and will add interest to doing it a different way. My fingers are getting itchy to start...I promised myself I wouldn't touch a thing for this until after Christmas!

    I promised myself a lot of things but I never keep those promises

    I just posted a brief notice in the "Main" section of the Forum. I hope we get a few more for the "Posse". I hope it doesn't get bumped. The first FWS was posted in the Main then the threads were posted in the BOMW when it officially started. I hope they leave it.

    I'm going to iron a few shirts...maybe that will keep my itchy fingers busy!

    Oh maybe (!!!?!!!) Gotta get the book, fabs, etc yet though. And I did say something at Thanksgiving to DD that I wasn't going to start anything new. She looked over at her DH and said did you get that on tape? LOL 8" blocks is a little less intimdating than the 6's or 4's of FWS or DJ--or maybe not. You guys are such fun to be with.

    I think the timing is great starting the first of the year. I have my Pony Club book and putting together different fabrics I think will fit some of the blocks. Still working on the FWS, plan to finish it!

    While the FWQ was being done, I watched, read and saved Honchey's wonderful cutting directions. I tried a few blocks, but my accuracy wasn't there - I am hoping I am now ready to make the Pony Club blocks since they are 8 inches instead of the 6 inch or heaven forbid the 4 inch Dear Jane blocks. I will order the book today and ponder what method, and anchor fabric I will use. I have quite a few novelty prints from an I Spy quilt I am working on, perhaps I will include some of those in this effort. I do look forward to learning from you wonderful, supportive quilters. See you in January.

    I subscribed to this thread but wasn't receiving my e-mail updates, soooo I unsubscribed and subcribed again, see if this works. minor gremlin
    ok I am using American Rose Banner, I have a fat quarter pack and it is beautiful reds, blues and beiges, I intend to add fabric from my stash if needed and I am using the same background fabric for some unity. As I don't have any grandchildren (and am constantly told "not getting any") I don't have any novelty prints in my stash.
    It will be interesting to see everyone's fabric choices. I am itching to start this project (and it is sitting in my sewing room staring at me) I have only made Block 1, just for a tester.
    Tomorrow I will finish another ufo, then only 2 to go, the rest are wip's so they don't count heheheh
    Welcome to any newcomers to this wonderful sew along, I am sure you are going to enjoy the pony ride.
