    I have 30 blocks done. Not much I know. Love doing the project but the house has been one project after another after another and there went productivity. I miss the weekly pictures of everyone blocks. I'm not sure I'll do the pony one at this point. I feel I need to get this done first, but I'll sure be looking in on the project. I might just get the book so I can start whenever. Even though my progress has been slow (less than one block a week) I do want to express my thanks for all the work that people have done especially the writing of the rotary instructions, what a life saver!!! I like all the discussion threads because that has been a huge help as well and the pictures just for pure enjoyment and inspiration. This has been a wonderful experience and wonderful group.

    Awww how nice you are! You just keep at it and you'll be done one of these days. No hurry, just enjoy the time you spend on the blocks. I'm sure your quilt will turn out as lovely as all those that have finished.

    I feel far behind now myself, even though all the blocks are done. I've got to the finish the border on the first half of my quilt, and have not started putting my blocks together for the second half. Oh well, I'll get there!

    Everyone here has been wonderful with encouraging words and displaying beautiful blocks each week for a year. Gosh,I do miss that. I will drop by and see everyone's blocks for the pony quilt.

    Promised a good friend I would start with her on a Civil War Journal BOM in Ferurary with the Quilted Kitty of Lincoln, NE. (I hope that is OK to mentions the name of the shop). She loves the quilt patterns and the reproduction fabrics of historical times.

    Hello everyone, I have ordered my Pony Club book, can't wait to get it. It might take a little longer to get to me though :cry: I have also organised my fabric so I am good to go (in the New Year) :?
    I have my FWS top together with backing and wadding ready to start quilting, but unfortunately other things are taking priority.
    My club has made over 70 childrens quilts for the victims of Cyclone Yasi since April and that has kept me pretty busy. We delivered the last 25 today. Now we start making more quilts for the Childrens Ward at our Hospital.
    I am hoping to finish my quilt for Christmas, before I start another sew along.
    I also miss posting my blocks every week and seeing everyone eye candy, it has been a pleasure to be part of such a wonderful group of ladies :thumbup:

    I'm sort of "stuck" now with my blocks all completed and no good way to finish them...I will be patient and see what happens. I am really looking forward to finishing this one...some of these blocks were such a difficult challenge for me!

    Your blocks were such beauties, what do you mean "no good way to finish them"?

    I agree, RW-your blocks are great. I can't wait to see them all together.

    I mean that my design wall is tiny and even if I moved everything out of my living room, I wouldn't have space enough to lay out these blocks...simply an issue of room, but that's okay...one of these days my DH will retire and we will be moving and I will have a larger room! In the meantime, I am drooling over everyone's beautiful quilts! :)

    I haven't even begun to lay mine out yet. I ran out of seam tape for the batting. Ordered from Jo-Anns so when it gets here, I will be back adding the setting triangles.
