    Oh my goodness!!! What a great start to your quilt, Honchey!
    Now you've got me wondering? Are you using hte yellow spotted fabric for sashing?

    Tomorrow, I'll tackle my first block ... though I think my first will be the 2nd!
    The real question ... will I be able to sleep now, with all the excitement and anticipation?

    Week one Pony Club blocks

    I'm doing mine scrappy without the pony theme. I used templates for the Beauty block and it went pretty well. I just have to figure out how to upload the pictures from my iPad! It doesn't seem to work like a computer for this function.

    Hi, Y'all! What beautiful blocks! I'm assuming that FWS Pony CLub BOM is shooting for 2 blocks per week, so I'll be back regularly to see all of them. Happy New Year.

    Love your fabric.....
    I am being a pest, but try as I may, I can't figure out how to post a picture. I see in the help section that I need to find the "insert" icon (where is it?) and the I can do it.....all I ever get is this quick reply and there aren't any buttons....

    I couldn't find the icon either but wheni went to advanced, it allowed me to browse my computer and select my files. After they are uploaded you still have to submit the posting. Good luck.

    What a beautiful start to the PC! As the first picture downloaded the horses dramatically leapt out of the block at me! Then ggirl970's wonderfully contrasted reds came into view. Great job you two!
    After seeing these blocks I can see why PP will be often used. Taking a 9P block and making 8" evenly divisible by 3 would be a challenge otherwise.
    Don't worry spider.

    GGal ... great blocks! Your Beauty is truly a beauty!!


    JanieW ... no need to be shy. You're off to a great start with some very well made blocks. For future blocks, the Beauty fabrics will blend well with that Dandy pony!! Cute!! Do I really see cowboy ropes in A Beauty? Nice touch!!!

    I just got the book and love it! I'm currently working on The Farmer's Wife and have 62 blocks done. I want to start TFWPC but will just have to look at the blocks that are being done for now. I want to do a pony theme on some blocks so I have to find some fabric.

    My first two blocks

    I am not following the pony theme. Using material I have. Thanks for letting me trot with you. This is my first so my blocks will not be as nice as others but I am excited about joining all of you.

    Welcome Cookie!! ... No need to be shy with such beautiful blocks! The gold background really plays nicely with the dark print. And I predict we just might see some rose in the mix in the future!
