    Oh Evie--how wonderful! The red and black is so rich. I love it.

    Anne, your blocks are wonderful. Remember you have 50 other blocks to blend in, so it probably isn't as bad as you think!

    RW--as always I love your blocks.

    Gramma: the purple blocks are so wonderful!

    Everyone else whose name I can't remember: I love all the blocks posted and I can't wait for summer so I can catch up!

    Oh so nice to see all your displays of great work!!!! Isn't it interesting, how the blocks look so much more put together when you get them together. And even better, for those that have added in the sashing/cornerstones at this point. I'm envious ... and enjoying catching up with everyone!So here's my pics for you ... #51-75, as well as the whole bunch on my design wall, #1-75 plus some hopscotch extras, totalling 84 now. I sure wish the weather would have cooperated today, so I could have gone outside for better pics for you to see. And because the sides of the pictures are getting cut off, I've turned them on their sides for a better look ... thus why some of the blocks appear to be upside down or sideways (eg. maple leaf, trees, etc.)Thanks for looking!

    Beautiful! I still haven't done my 75 blocks picture. When I took the 50 picture, I took a large piece of material and tacked it up to the side of the garage and then put my blocks on it. I always take my pictures there because it is a large area. It's in the shade all the time. I also try to wait for an overcast day to take pix, because the lighting is even and the colors are much more true to the original.

    I have been keeping a "virtual" quilt on my computer. I have been using MS Publisher and putting all my blocks there. It does a nice job and get to enjoy how my quilt is going to look!

    I finally got my first 75 uploaded. Like I said, I've also been doing my blocks as a "virtual quilt." It took me a bit of fussing to get the file in a format that would get uploaded. Hope this shows up correctly. Fingers crossed!

    Good for you! Your virtual quilt, does it let you move the blocks around to help you determine placement? Would be a lot easier than the old fashioned IRL way!

    I'm lucky and have one huge design wall, so can have them all up and in full view. Then have some smaller portable design boards that I made with the off cuts from my big wall. So lots of space. Wish I could get better pictures inside and that's why I'd hoped to take them outside to the snow today, but with the rain and meltdown, there's no way that was even possible.

    Here's hoping you'll take yours out for some air and get some pics for us to see! Pretty garage wall!! Hey ... while I was typing this, I see you posted your virtual quilt. Neat!!! And thanks for showing them to us.



    OKSGlad and JanRN ... Thanks Ladies! I am enjoying getting it finished up, though I know that there's this Pony Club quilt that's going to mess with my brain! I'm wanting to start with everyone, and try to stay with the group. However, I do want to get the FWS blocks done, so I am not trying to think of both. Sashing/cornerstones etc. will be easy to do as I work on POny Club!

    Good Night Y'all!

    That's nice of the virtual quilt, I can move the pieces around. I haven't done that, I've just put them in the order I made them. All in all, it's much better to get the blocks up than look at them in such a small size.

    I don't have a wall space big enough for a design wall. I also have the same difficulty with places to display my quilts! I told my husband that I was saving for a 72"x72" portable, free-standing design wall. It's from Cherylannsdesignwall.com. They have 4 different sizes. You can take it completely apart and put it in a carrying case. The wall is flannel, with fiberglass poles & molded fitting. Sort of like making the frame with pvc pipes and stretching the flannel taut across it.

    I'm waiting till I have the money. Soon I hope!

    That sounds like it'd be a great thing ... do you have the space to set it up, if you do get it? There's been pics of similar ones at times here on the Board when folks have shown their WIP.

    I'm lucky that I have the wall space for a permanent one. With no one else here in my home competing for space, it makes it pretty nice! Mine is 10ftx 7-1/2ft, covered with black polar fleece. Spoiled, aren't I?

    Wow! That sounds really nice! I do have floor room to set up the portable one. The living room in our house is the least used room as we have a family room. There's plenty of floor space, just no wall space. The lighting in there is good during the morning.

    Convert it to your sewing room!!!!!

    I have a lovely living room ... I really like it, though it's seldom used, as the family room is so much more comfy when by myself. And when I have company, unless it's a huge group, the living room just seems too huyge. I dream of it becoming the kitchen every time I ge annoyed at my teeny-tiny one. Not. Going. To. Happen!! But a girl's gotta have dreams, right?

    I'm lucky enough to have a bedroom as my sewing room! We live in a 3 bedroom house and it's just my DH and I now that the kids are on their own.

    QNonnie these are great--so many colors, but they all look so well together.
    In regards to the first groups shown in the thread-it's interesting to see the difference the sashing makes in the overall effect. There's a lot of talent in this group, ladies.
