    Ta Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!

    Finished! Fini!! Finito!!!
    #111 -- Wrench ... For the Churn Dash I put a fussy cut kitten in the centre, and in the end it really didn't look like a Churn Dash, so this one I kept simple and plain

    #112 -- Log Cabin ... I was surprised there was not a log cabin block and wanted to include one

    #113 -- 4-H Block ... In an earlier thread there was discussion about how 4-H was the base where many of us got our sewing basics. Also, in 2013 we will be celebratintg 100 years of 4-H in Canada!! Events are already starting for the celebrations.

    #68 -- Postage Stamp ... this is the 4th Postage Stamp block I have made for the quilt. As you can see it's not totally done, as I can't finish it til I get my sashing/border/binding fabric. So, that means 4x36 = 144 different fabrics were used!

    These 5 extras will let me have a little flexibility as to which blocks make it into the quilt. I'll move out the 5 that just don't look the best in the whole layout!

    And now Good Night! .................. but first a final Yahooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!
    (though there's still a lot of work to do for the sashing, etc!)

    Congratulations to everyone who have finished all their blocks, Kudos to those who have the tops all pieced, and extra congratulations to those who have them finished.
    One of my favorite blocks is the Hole in the barn door; I just love it's simplicity, and when you put it on point it changes so much. Thanks for sharing your lovely blocks.
    QE you final blocks are spectacular; Hat's off to the 4-H block. The birthplace of the 4-H emblem is about 150 miles from here in Clarion, IA.
    144 fabrics, amazing. Like you I'm surprised there is no Log Cabin. Great additions.
    Don't worry spider.

    Congratulations, QuiltE!!!!!!!! I'm looking forward to seeing the contents of your saddlebags on the PC. I'll bet there's a beauty at the depot in Arizonia or is it Alabama just waiting for something special from Betty who is waiting for her best friend she likes best of all...oh, oh, I got ahead of the herd. I've been watching the blocks you've been posting these past weeks...well done!

    Thanks OKSGlad and GGal ... I'm happy to share! and appreciate your many kind words. I'll se if I can get a pic of all 116 on my design wall to show them together.

    OKSGlad ... I too am fond of the HITB, though had never heard it called that til you first mentioned it! The simplicity is great and you really can do something with it. Get your thinking cap on for me ... antique butter making display coming up and I'm thinking of a quilt to be in it for some colour. Would love to know more about the story behind the 4-H emblem.

    ITA about the on point change of look ... some of the earlier blocks, were better on point, and sadly some just lost their sparkle on point. I'd found a 4-H block on the web, but it was "meant" for square setting with an on point look. So I designed my own ... merely a 9 patch!

    GGal ... what creative writing there!!! I'm looking forward to the PC blocks for a change of pace. I'm going to go at it with a different fabric strategy. It'll be fun working with the ponies and their friends ... and looking for all the fussy cut possibilities!

    Wow! Congratulations QE! It's a great accomplishment. I think you're added blocks are fantastic. Love the 4H. I was in 4H when I was young(er). I still use the skills I learned then, not to mention learning how to sew. Plus making posters for presentations etc.

    Remember this summer when I was ahead of you and you were saying that I'd finish first? Strange things happen, don't they? Congratulations on finishing and coming in ahead of me!

    I have this rope in my hands. I can't figure out whether I found a rope or lost my horse.

    Oh QNonnie ... I was smiling last night as I read my posts with 15 blocks done in August. There was no race here, just that I became focused as I wanted these blocks and their affiliated fabric stash out of the way before I got on the PC saddle!

    Many Thanks to you
    QNonnie, for helping me re-energize over Christmas. I was at a low in FWS enthusiasm then, and could have so easily set it all aside, and with your riding along with me for those few weeks, you helped me get back in the spirit. I know you will finish yours ... sometimes we just need a break for a bit. And I'm looking forward to seeing your quilt you are working on now.

    I'm somewhat glad (relieved?) to see the FWS blocks done. Now for the long process of sashing etc. which will be broken up with the PC blocks, and hopefully some other projects. I just hope my LQS has been able to get the fabric I need for the sashing/borders/binding and that I don't have to start off on a hunt for something else.

    First before anything else will be trimming and binding my Hospice Passage Quilt.

    Thank You Honchey!!

    All ... it's been so nice to be able to chat and share with those who have done this quilt. Only those that have "gone before" truly understand the work it takes. Or the excitement of working thru each block, and coming towards the end. I find the others just go, ho-hum ... as though it were a just a bunch of fabrics haphazardly thrown together. Thank goodness for "FWS Sisters"!

    I'm pleased ... and know I will be even more pleased as I see the blocks go together.
