    I will try to post some of the grandkids quilts. They all know I'm making them, some picked colors and some picked the patterns they wanted. It will probably be Christmas of 2013 before I get them all finished.

    I still need to take a better picture of the quilt for our second grand-son.
    The forth grandson is supposed to draw me some pictures of guitars for his quilt. He is really into music. So I thought thats what i would make him. The youngest will be 12 in Dec so i will problably making him a twin size for now and a queen size for later. I already have the material for theirs.
    I made 4 dresden plate quilts for our 2 sons and 2 daughters. One is completly hand quilted and the other 3 machine and hand quilted.

    Awesome Quilts, grannyQ! I'm sure your grandchildren will cherish them. Wow, you will have a lot of quilting to do to finish these! I am in the process of quilting a queen size, and the decision on the borders has been a trial. The quilt will go in our motorhome, so I have a large final border, as I want to tuck it in on the bottom. With a wide border, I think I'll have to repeat the border I want, because if I enlarge it to fit the space, it will be too far spread apart. Does that make sense???

    Beautiful quilts, GrannyQ. You are so good at getting strong contrast with few colors. Your color placement is perfect. Love all of them.

    There's something fresh and calming about your PC blocks, GrannyQ!

    What wonderful gifts you will be giving everyone ... and I notice the blues and purples showing thru again!! Then alas, a green study! All are beautiful and will be cherished by your family.

    Glad you will be part of the Swap .... now a Baker's Dozen!

    Alas! The Big SIX-Oh achievement!!!

    The bottom row is all of the non-PC blocks that I have made. Since the last grouping, I have made a few more darker blocks with less yellow, and with non-yellow against the sashings. Thanks for the feedback, and I look forward to any other input you can give as I do the next bunch of blocks. Honing in on the finish of 72 (plus a few extras to have to trade in, when I consider placement.)

    Ah now I see it and well worth the wait. Such a sunny quilt. The PP pony with the diagonal stripes would also be a fantastic center block.

    Oh that is wonderful QuiltE. I think that Jewel Block looks lonely with its purple background. Maybe some more of that fabric or color if you have any???

    I've gotta get my PC blocks out of their drawer and onto my display wall......but I have my bonus blocks up there and can't seem to stop staring at them! Ohhhhh, what a dilemma! lol

    OKSGlad ... I had it critiqued by a horse owner as being a poor looking horse! Wait til they see the cow I made. I don't think she'd classify Ex either! Yes, there's more farm animals to come. I still hope its not too sunny-bright of a quilt.

    JeanieG ... oh I know that you just want more fusions in there!! Will see where I can work it in, in the upcoming blocks. I see such great combos of fabric and then sometimes have to step back, in order to get my yellow in there. Sometimes a huge challenge!

    I think your variety of colors is good. If you have more farm animals to come maybe put those in the middle and build the other blocks around them?? Can't wait to see what else you have in store.

    Thanks CarrieM!

    I remember last year with the FWS how I got to not being able to "see" the blocks to pick out what needed to be added or skipped ... I'm pretty much there now. I really appreciated then, and again now, the help of my fellow trail riders!

    Wow...really nice looking. One comment....a few of the block have dark backgrounds with only a hint if yellow and it detracts from the balance in my view. Useable but place them carefully. My eye was drawn to them right away.

    Thanks GGal for the insights.
    While I only need 72 blocks for the size I want, I will be making extras. That way when I get to dealing with placement, I am not locked into just the 72 and can play til I feel the placement works before putting them all together.

    When I posted the first 45, someone noted that I had a problem as there was only one or two with the minimal-yellow and dark edges, so I worked on getting a few more into the mix. I think that will help provide a little "cloud-effect" amidst all the bright sun of this quilt, much like the muddy-blocks in the FWS ... and give the eye a place to rest. After all, IRL my eyes are photophobic!
