    Another great pair, OK!

    I'm going thru now and "subscribing" to all the FWS photo threads, thanks to Evie's handy list on her blog. Guess you posted these while I was off line, and I missed them til now!!

    I missed them, too. Very nice. I really like that Batwing block-it's odd; wonder how it would look with them side by side in a larger quilt. Great work OK.

    Go for it ... and show us!
    I think it could be very effective. Wonder what it'd be like, to alternate their directions?

    Here are my #5 Bat Wings and #6 Big Dipper blocks. There is discussion on the Yahoo group about reversing the image for those blocks that are not exact mirror images, when printing the paper piecing patterns. I have not reversed these; I can't really see the utility of doing so, except to have one's blocks be "exactly like in the book."

    Great blocks, Nicky. Your points are perfect; I can see the advantage to paper piecing. I better get over my dislike of pp before we start Pony Club quilt. Pretty colors and lots of contrast-great job.

    Great blocks!

    IF we're supposed to stick with the book .... then I'm sunk!
    I think it's more important to show your own creativity and do it however you like
    but who am I to say?

    Good to see you back here, JanRN!!!
    We'll help you get over the PPing hate .... after all, if I can come to like it, you can too.

    A year ago, I saw no sense in it. At Easter I did my first PPing wall hanging and detested it .... though later I found out I chose a difficult one to do. Then once I shortened up my stitch, the results changed immensely, and I was away to the races. The more I've done with FWS the more confident and comfortable I am with it. Not all my blocks are PPd, though I find I'm doing more of them that way. And I think PC will become a totally PP project, just so I can say that's what it is!

    The results are incredibly accurate and as you said .... perfect points (and more!)

    I see it as paint-by-numbers meet dot-to-dot .... both things I loved as a kid!
    And anything to feel like a kid again, is good!!! Right?

    Thank you, all you latecomers for the continuing eye candy. Your blocks are lovely!

    Jan, like you I'm not hot for paper piecing. The few blocks I tried were almost disasterous. But after looking at some of Anael's beautiful blocks (on the FW Pony Club quilt) I may not have a choice. It will be a challenge. I suppose it'll be a learning experience. Hope I'm not too old to learn new tricks!

    Evie and JanRN .... If I can catch onto PPing, I KNOW you can! When you're ready, we'll gather round the campfire and all the Pony Club'ers can share PP stories and help you find what works. I think what made the biggest difference for me was when I shortened my stitch as short as I could go (1.0 on Janome). I just use regular photocopy/printer paper. And I did my first lessons on the QuiltersCache.com site. Then after that, I somewhat stumbled along til I found my way.

    And maybe this isn't where you need/want help ... so do tell/ask what you want!
