    So much fun to see your blocks, Carrie. Going to a sit and sew tomorrow and taking my PC's to work on. Maybe I will have some to post tomorrow night!

    FWS = Farmer's Wife Sampler
    This was the first quilt and book by Laurie Aaron Hird.

    FWS Pony Club is the 2nd quilt and book by Laurie.

    You can read more at her site
    http://thefarmerswifequilt.blogspot.ca/

    Many of the Ladies currently doing the FWS PC, also did or are doing the FWS.
    You can see many completed FWS quilts here ...
    The FWS Quilt-Along Completed Quilt/Top Photo/Discussion Page

    The FWS PC has 90 blocks and this group has worked on it together since January and is almost thru the 90, at two per week. Some Ladies have all 90 done now ... and as for myself, I'm way behind on the dusty ol' trail!

    Laurie Aaron Hird wrote the first book, "The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt Book" based on letters the farmers wrote for a contest in the Farmers Wife Magazine (1912 - 1939) era. Ms. Hird took these letters and based her quilt blocks on the Contest letters. Which we did first on QB, under the leadership of Honchey. Then the second book was published by her, called "The Farmer's Wife Pony Club Sampler Quilt" this one, we are about to finish in December
    That is too long of a title to repeat every week, so it has become FWS PC. It is based on the pony contest by the same magazine, where a boy or girl could sell subscriptions to the magazine and earn a pony, saddle, cart and harness.

    Hope this helps to understand the title.

    Naw QNS, you gave a much more thorough explanation for Jane! That is all good!
