Oh such lovely work to see before I go to bed!
It's really impossible to pick a favourite grouping ... you all win, as each has different reasons why they are my favourite! :)
JanRN ... your neighbours must love it when you lay your quilts out on the front lawn! How pretty! The blue you chose is going to look spectacular and everything is going to look so fresh and cheery. What a beauty it will be. I'm sure you'll find some yellows to work in that you will "like"!!! What are you thinking of for your cornerstones?
GGal ... what a great mix of colours you have. Your sashings are perfect and those cornerstones just seem to light it all up.
JeanieG ... So wonderful! YOur brown sashings are a perfect pony colour! Are you using cornerstones or keeping it all to brown? I like the looks of your non-pony PC blocks on the design wall, so what about white sashings? A month's holiday ... wow!!!!!!!!! Will this be with your camping group entourage? .... do you ever get to check out LQS' when you're away? Have fun ... we'll miss you!
OKSGlad ... we'll be back together and at it again soon!! Your rain arrived here this afternoon with a sudden downpour, then lighter after. Will check the gauge tmro and know the results!

I am thinking black or dark brown cornerstones. I had some black squares, but could not locate them, I had stuck them up earlier.
Yes, I kind of like the white also, maybe go with a cream - white seems so harsh to me, for the other quilt.
We are traveling for around 8 days with our friends, who are also in our camping group. We travel with them a lot. Then they are returning home, and we are going on to Toppenish, WA, where I have a grandson to visit. Then over to Whidbey Island, WA where our best friends live on 3 1/2 acres. They have a spot with full hookups for our motorhome, so we usually stay a couple of weeks with them. Then we will head back to California.
We will have WIFI quite often during our trip, so should be able to keep up on the Board. My friend and I always go shopping for fabric when I am there. There is a wonderful fabric shop in Annacortes, that I purchased a lot of my Pony fabric last year.
I always take my little light weight Brother machine for piecing, so hope to stay caught up on my blocks. The problem will be with the fabric, I'll take the box I have all the Pony fabric in, but I often open my dresser that has all my smaller pieces to pull others for the blocks. Can't take the dresser - LOL! I also have some other projects that I can work on that I am taking along.
We are leaving next Wednesday.
Yay for Jeanie! You are gonna have a ball!
Jeanie, I like the idea of 2 quilts. And I love all the blocks and colors you've chosen. Have a great time on your trip!
PRETTY PRETTY PRETTY
JeanieG, Your blocks look great together!!! I like the sashing for your PC quilt. You're going to have 2 beautiful quilts. I hope you have a great time on your trip.
Ok I have just arrived home after 2 days with DD and everyones blocks are beeeeeaaaaaauttttiful.....
JeanieG ... the dark brown or black to keep the sashings/cornerstones would create a more blended and not so spotty look. Great idea! Looks like you have a wonderful trip planned ...... although I do think you should do a trip into Canada while up in Washington!!! Well, if you don't have the fabrics you want/need, then you'll just have to buy more!!!!!! :) Habe a great trip!!
All the 45 quilt blocks shown are very pretty, done in all kinds of colors, and very well done.
Here is mine.
Will try again. Won't work. Will try later.
