    Oh, man I just love looking at everyone's blocks.

    QuiltE.... we are only 6 blocks in so it hasn't been that hard to raid the stash. We shall see as the weeks go by. I am trying to follow what colours Laurie used so that makes it easy to shop the stash. I just got a couple of western type fabrics in the mail today from a very dear friend.

    You're right it is really, really cold here. It won't be long before cabin fever sets in. The little darlings have gone home so I am going to relax and enjoy the quiet before moseying on down to the sewing room.

    Leba... The 30's fabric has been in my stash for more than 10 years. It really doesn't go with the pony theme, but the colours worked and it was time to use it up. Thanks.

    Can't wait to check this thread again. Keep 'em comin'.

    No reason for you to get cabin fever, JanieW .... just sew sew sew sew to your little ♥'s content!
    Your 30's fabric will mix and match perfectly with the quilt!
    You'll be able to mix and match from your stash, and perhaps find some more in the stores as time goes on.

    brrrrrrrrrr ... Keep Warm!
    (and thankfully we're not so ccccccold here, cold yes, but not like you! Just finished talking to a GF whose DD is in Calgary at -35C.)

    I finished Arizona today. I'll start cutting At the Depot in a little bit.
    I did some playing with this neat block. First I used the striped fabric & cut the HSTs over the dividing line. I don't think I'm explaining this very well. Next I wanted to show off the Betsy Ross cameo without cutting off the top & bottom. Well I cut the line drawing out different.
    Here's a picture of the back with the freezer paper still on it.

    I also wanted to show the 2 partial blocks that i made by sewing the cut off pieces from the Arrowhead block. I'm thinking of putting borders on 'em (they are about 6" square) & then appliqueing something different on each one.

    Um, Anne, if you quit hanging out at the Bingo Hall and started sewing......just kidding. Hope you're feeling better and enjoying your stay down south. I agree with you--lots of talent showing up for PC. This is so much fun-thank you for "hosting" this round-up (now I sound like Quilt E LOL).

    JanRN ... atta girl!! You just keep that up, y'hear?

    DublB ... Looks like you nailed it!! Miss Betsy would be pleased with your handy work.

    MiraBelle ... ooooooooooooooh beeeeeeeauuuuuuuutiful! Darn that husband for thinking he should interrupt your sewing to be fed and watered! Imagine!!

    OKSGlad ... Yippppppeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!

    Honchey ... watch out or you're going to have to change your handle to BINGO!

    Moi
    ? ... almost had another pair of FWS done and then noticed that I'd miscued on placements of colours/fabrics on the 4 of the 5 sections. Thankfully it was before I sewed the 5 together. It'll be much easier to totally remake the sections than to take apart. I'll put them together and make a mug rug, instead!

    Thanks QuiltE, my DH works on a mine site and although I do look forward to him being away I also long for him to be home. I will just have to make him stop watching cooking shows, cause he thinks he lives in a restaurant
    Well I am off to pack my car ready to spend a day sewing with my machine embroidery group.
    Keep those beautiful blocks coming everyone, the eye candy is unbelievable

    GardnerGal I learned doing FWS not to square up my blocks until I was ready for sashing. The sashing "tames" all those waves and helps make them all the same size. (not that mine varied in size -HA!!)
    Thanks, Jan. That's what I was counting on.

    Hope you have a fun retreat-day!

    As for DH ... I can see that you cram two weeks of "life" together, in the one week he's home ... and then wheeeeee you're on your own again! I'm sure you miss him when he's gone, but somewhat enjoy the independence you gain ... while at the same time are anxious for him to return ASAP!

    HeeHee, QuiltE........I skipped "A Beauty", just decided I didn't want the frustration, but here is "A Dandy"....I did two to make up for the first one that I chickened out of.....

    Well Darn! As you can see, one wouldn't upload.....maybe too large. It is with a cowgirl in the center.....all reds around.....fun! I love doing these blocks and reading the stories surrounding them....

    Fantastic variety of fabric choices. I like looking such beautiful and well done blocks. So great combo fabrics & colors, those fussy cut are perfect for each block. Very well done.

    As for me, here is my Arizona block:
