My background fabric looks really weird after being scanned, it really is a lovely cream with a darker leaf motif.

The QW here. Oh the pretties are here, and not just "pretty horses"!
JanieW red and green blocks look wonderful;
and Cookie- yours and mirabelle's will be welcome relief from all the ponies!! Are you going to keep with browns and golds from your scraps or are you going to bring other colors?
Love your fabrics Mbelle!
dublb the brown sashing to the block really sets it off.
QE did you use that green in your FWS? The center horse is spot on!

Lucy--please post your blocks in the FWS group threads. There's still a few of us adding to the photo pages, so join right in. In Evie's blog she has all the picture links. This is link to her blog. I use it all the time!

Dubib...the way you shadowed your little squares makes the block look altogether different . I had to study it a bit to make sure it way a BEAUTY...you've lifted it to higher heights!

Maribelle, I did a double take as I was scrolling through the pages. I knew I had already seen my blocks and here it turned up again but oops...it's your block. I just got those fat quarters this past week and couldn't resist using them. I love the red paisley.

As usual, your blocks are outstanding. Such cute prints and attention to detail. Keep up the great piecing.

MiraBelle ... Great blocks! Do you plan to use the same background throughout? It helps to give a fresh crispness to the blocks, and the darker overleaf keeps it warm. With the array of fabrics you have, I'm anxious to see the next two!

MiraBelle and GGal ... That's something that the two of you chose the same fabric for your first blocks!! It'll be interesting to see the paths your quilts take from here!

QW aka OKSGlad ... Nope! different fabrics ... though once I am done the FWS quilt, I have already spotted some that will be candidates. Til a quilt is finished, I've learned to never "borrow", for fear I come up with a new plan and need it in the first! Perhaps that's how my stash has grown ever so much??

I had such a hard time choosing the fabrics, so I decided to just start with the horse square and let it talk to me. And oh, how the horse fabric looked different once cut down and surrounded with the yellow. Both the green and tan are from the Stonehenge line. The green is kind of a green/blue mottled cut-stone-look with a bit of black/navy. The tan is a multi shade with flecks of the green.
