    Ponies, and cows, and goats Oh My!! Love them--I think you are going to have a really fun quilt.
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    Thanks Ladies!!!!

    JanRN ... It's all about FUN, isn't it? I've never worked much with novelties and only done limited FC til this quilt. One of my goals was to get better at FC and know how to maneouver around odd shapes to make it work. Whether I am doing it technically right ... it's right for me and it seems to be working!

    CarrieM ... I had limited fabric in NDN, and was quite the challenge how/where to get my FC to make it work. Some are a little "off" as that was my only choice. I'm thinking the black and gold is a Fairy Frost? Just a little bling and was used in a few of the other blocks too.

    Oh both are very nice but I think the NC is exceptionally so. It really caught my eye--left right placement of the horses draws the eye to the center and then the FG (yellow I might add) take you to the corners. A+ in design on that one.

    Oh QE these blocks are just you. So very lovely. Your FC has become a great asset in your skills, & these blocks show it.

    ITA ... NC turned out well. NDN just didn't make the grade so well.

    Hello all. It's been fun to see the interpretations of the blocks and the ideas and stories about reading. Me, I love to read. Just wish there was more time.
    Finished my final block last night - North Carolina Beauty. I went in a different direction and reversed colour placement in the centre section from the outer.

    I know this block would have been easier paper pieced but I can now say that every single block I made from the book was regular pieced. I have no idea why that is so important to me. lol

    I just found out that my final block was finished on The Raven Day - the date in 1845 that Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven was first published. How cool is that? (Thanks QuiltE).

    Strike up the band!!!!!!!!!!!
    Hip Hip Hooray, W4Me has all her PC blocks made!

    Great idea for the reversed geese in the two diagonals. A nice way to show off the different fabrics. Nice and colourful block to finish with.

    Thought you would find that trivia interesting when I sent it to you, being that you have those raven fabrics! Just too coincidental that the dates matched!

    Great job W4Me!!! You're done! Love this block too
    Here's the last part of the poem, it's too long to post it.

    And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting

    On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
    And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
    And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;
    And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
    Shall be lifted - nevermore!
    A balanced quilter is one with a project on each finger
    Eat, quilt, sleep, repeat


    Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example
