    Laurie Aaron Hird wrote 2 books. I'm not sure about the name of the first one except it had Farmers Wife Sampler in it's name. The Second book is Farmer's Wife Sampler Pony Club. Last year several of these board members did the FWS club & made some wonderful blocks & I'm sure wonderful quilts. (I haven't seen 'em.) I was very excited to join this second BOW club after I had seen some of the blocks in the first club.
    Here's the thread that explains The FWS pony club.

    I did another substitute block. I played with my fabrics & couldn't seem to make the "Basket of Flowers" work. So this is what I come up with instead.

    Thanks! I hope I don't have too many that I have to substitute. I really want to make the PC blocks!

    Oh Jeanie, the flowers are just perfect for you basket; great blue/cream combo on Betty's block. Looking at your block I think I've figured out a quick way to piece it. More later.

    The fabric is from Benartex by Deborah Baronas, called Riverbed (that's all what I have so it might be called .......Riverbed)

    I never would have attempted the FWS without the encouragement of members of this Board and also saddle up for the PC quilt, so thank you everyone. You are a wonderful group of people.
    MiraBelle ... Congratulations on your 34 years! And look at you ... not only FWS+PC, but also SBS on the go too!

    DublB ... I even recognized Liberty before, I saw your tag on it!! What was wrong with your fabrics for the Basket of Flowers? And your Betty's is a Delight!

    JeanieG ... look at that bright green grass of spring with the fresh picked posies! Great combo for Betty's Delight ... look at those mini-horseshoes!

    Anael ... I bet Aunt Manon lived by the ....... Riverbed!!

    JeanieG,

    Your blocks are so cheerful, a real treat on this overcast day. Your flowers in the basket are perfect.

    In Betty's Delight, I like your teeny tiny horsehoes. The blue/ offwhite combo really works.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone! It is so much fun to "get to do" these weekly blocks again. I really missed not having blocks to look forward to doing every week! Am I the only one that felt "something" was missing in my life. Does that sound weird or what! Maybe I just lead a boring life! (But I am NEVER bored.) LOL

    You know Jeanie whenever I finish a project I have this, "Now what am I going to do next?" feeling even when I have tons of UFO's. After finishing the barn DQ and the school fundraiser projects sighed, said to myself, "Now what?" Easy answer--PC! So QNinaSue you'll be just a step ahead of us (QE and me)! We're all on the trail together!

    QNSue ... you can't be as far behind as OKSGlad and I!

    JeanieG ... I must paraphrase your line ... To many I have a boring life, but they don't realize I am never bored!

    GGal ... there's nothing wrong with those scrappy blocks! Love the double weave, in the background and on the basket! Well done for those stripes for Betty!

    Anael ... Glad to help, though I'm not really doing anything. The rest of you are doing the work!

    Hey Ya'll - I'm so excited seeing all of ya'll's blocks! Those points are awesome!
    Mirabelle - Congrats on 34 yrs! I'm 5 yrs behind ya.
    Jeanie - Love that bright green! At first I didn't notice the green in the leaves matched the background!
    The blues & cream are perfect together.
    Gardenergal - Wow! Your color combos are so different, yet are perfect together.
    ArtEmCasa - Lovely flowers & such a nice basket.
    Again, Everybody's points are great!

    QuiltE - I played with the patriotic fabric & it wouldn't make a very good basket. Then the background ????? Should it be the blue with the stars or the cream? What should I use for the flowers??? The bells. No too they're too big. One of the creams? No, they didn't look right. The flags? No too big again. I threw my hands up & made the Liberty Bell.

    I hear ya! Though sometimes we try to make it to much the likeness of the original pattern block. Sometimes, just stretch out a little. I know the larger prints would be too large ... though your smaller ones mixed together would probably do the trick for you! Or perhaps look for some more blenders that will mix and match just right when the spaces are just too small for what you have?

    Just remember ... it's your quilt! We each need to give ourselves the permission to go off trail to create our own unique results. Good for you for letting your creativity roll on your Liberty block!

    Gardnergal and ArteEmCasa baskets are great, fussy cutting flowers so precise! You know that Betty block is so symmetrical and everyone's doing such a good job of contrasting the fabrics.

    Thanks -I realize I should have waited to pick out my fabric till after I had seen the blocks. I do like this lovely fabric. I'm just realizing that several of the blocks aren't right for the fabric. I do think that most will be great & then I'll make several substitutes.
