    Oops! I will have to take a picture of my Mrs. Morgan. She is ready, but I misunderstood and thought it was this week for Mother's Day we were taking off. Oopsy! Doopsy! I better get going on the next one then.
    Thanks Honchey for our reminder.

    Here is a pic of my Mrs. Morgan. I quickly seen the middle was not symmetrical, but I got her made anyway, and did enjoy making her.

    That's a beautiful block, Susan. All the prints work so well together in this pattern to make a very romantic block.

    Likewise, your batik versions are stunning this week, Jan.

    I initially thought we were taking this week off too. I'll make my blocks up pretty soon tho. I have finished my three donation quilts and taken them where they need to go. Now that they are out of the house I can get back to my 30's blocks.

    Oh, Jan, what a dreamy block that blue one is!
    Susan, your prints are like spring with the little flowers and green in the corners.
    I hope to post some block pictures over the weekend. I still have sewer problems at my house and it's getting me down...

    The number of pieces in Mrs. Smith must be close to a record, but it was easier to put together than I thought it was going to be.

    Katybob both of your blocks are so pretty. Yes, I am getting ready to cut out my Mrs. Smith, and it sure looks like lots of pieces, but looks easier than the first one. Your Mrs. Morgan looks pretty with the two solids popped out against your pretty floral. I like your Mrs. Smith's blues.

    I did mine... They aren't as crooked as they look in the photos. Those lumpy seams underneath make the sides appear crooked.

    I accidentally turned the cornerpieces in Mrs. Smith, but don't tell the quilt police!

    Sewbizgirl two more pretty gems. I like the yellow against those dots, and the soft blue with the dashing daisies.

    Such pretty blocks. Yinz are such a bad influence on me--last shopping trip I bought some pastel print fabrics! Something I don't own any of or use but now I like them since seeing these blocks. Please quit tempting me LOL.

    I've been trying to follow color schemes in the book, more or less. I don't want to end up with all blue, or too much pink, or whatever. I figure our author has balanced the colors for us, so the finished quilt has a good mixture. I just try to get as close as I can to hers with what I have collected in my stash for this project. Pastels aren't usually anything I use, either. I bought FQs of a bunch of solids to go with my prints.

    The 30's fabric I have always loved with little prints and with the print especially I like the pastels. I do like brights too, and the batiks. Not much I don't like in fabric.

    When I post some of my blocks I have that same thing with the bulk of some seams underneath making my blocks look wonky, but they aren't. Usually, I am just so glad when I get one done, I don't worry about it much and just hurry to post my photos. lol.... I guess I should try and take a bit more time when posting my pics. Some blocks I squared up, and others I would put in my notebook and will wait until time to put them together and do my main squaring up. I am having fun so that is most important for us all.

Size:  80.9 KBMrs. Smith was easy for me because I have made a quilt from the original block 'Blackbeard's block' with birthstones int he center for my nephew. Unfortunately he and his wife divorced and went their separate ways before I could gift them the quilt, so I ripped it apart by blocks. Mrs. Morgan made me think of the Morgan Horse that was developed in the USA as an all around horse for family or work. A very gentle horse for the early settlers.

    Very pretty blocks, QNS... I just love your color schemes. Esp. the blue/purple one. I just love that block.

    So sad about the nephew's quilt. You had already put a lot of thought and effort into it when you decided to rip it apart. Hope you found something good to do with the blocks.

    Thanks for the reminder about the Morgan horse too. We looked into those way back when we were looking at buying a horse for our kids. No one in our area has them, tho.

    I love all the farm/animal/homemaking tidbits you ladies share. It makes me feel like I'm amidst the women in our FW books! I'm so happy I stumbled upon this gem of a group.
