    The FWS PONY CLUB QUILT-ALONG Week 4 "Basket of Flowers & Betty's Delight" PHOTO Page

    Hello Ladies ... some of you will have seen Honchey's sister's post on the "gathering" thread we had prior to the launch of the Quilt-Along. Evidently she wasn't able to post the threads on Tuesday, and asked me to start them!!

    Hope that you are ready so show your beauties this week, so that Honchey can ooooh and aaaaaah when she next checks in.

    So, please do show your Eye Candy, Ladies ........ NOW!

    Oh Janie, that basket weave fabric is so awesome. I don't think I have ever seen anything like it. Both blocks are just beautiful!

    Janie I like your colors and the flowers in the basket. Nice extra touch and your blocks are flawless.

    Oooooooooooooooh ... Honchey will be very pleased with you Ladies, when she arrives!

    JanieW ... you couldn't have found better fabric for that basket! I think you were holding out on us as to the potential of your stash! Well done at keeping all the grass clumps in the same direction. Betty would be delighted with that brown and blue combo!!

    Leba ... Pretty in Pink!! Are they batiks? And another woven basket shows itself!

    MiraBelle ... Yours are really coming together with such a tranquil and calming look. Lovely!!

    JanRN ... and yet another with a woven basket, sitting in the flower garden! Great contrasts on those purples!! Wonder where the inspiration came form? I'm glad for you that despite the hectic pace, you allow yourself to slow down a little and take time for some sewing.

    Thanks for all the nice comments.

    QuiltE... my stash has been a pleasant surprise. I did most of my grumbling/worrying about it before I got the book. There will be challenges ahead, but I'll hog tie that dogie when I get to him!!

    Leba,

    I love your dark pink fabric. Your blocks are really pretty.

    mirabelle,

    super work. The colours looks so good. Your blocks are always so well made and calming.

    JanRN,

    Wow, I am not a purple person at all and I love that block. You were clever how you made your flowers the same as the setting triangles. I like that look.

    Great job everyone!

    Janie

    Great job everyone! Janie
    JanieW ... and you may be pleasantly surprised as to what other candidates show themselves from the depths of your stash!! Hey ... what are you doing posting .... you're supposed to be on twin duty today, aren't you. Now this gets me thinking? Will this be one quilt? or split into twin quilts? Could be fun!

    WendiQ ... a soft and fresh basket of posies ... then some bright sun to Delight Ms. Betty! Lovely in every way!

    Tuesday is the day we ride herd on the twins. Wednesday is the day I procrastinate on housework by reading the quilting board.

    I have no idea what this quilt will be. There is another little cowpoke on the way . This one will be born in real cowboy country so who knows, maybe he/she will want it someday. My oldest granddaughter is really into my quilting so she may decide it's hers. Whatever , they can fight over it after I'm gone, while I'm alive it's mine!

    I'm sending more oohs and aaaaaahs your way ... and am still really attracted to the Flower Basket!

    I keep looking at the basket and wondering what the writing says?

    I was quick scrolling through the pics, not paying attention to posters (red faced, I am) and everyone has the basket spot on followed by the high contrasts in the Betty block (any one have "Betty Boop" fabric?). I was chuckling because I saw the paisley in mirabelle's and knew it was her blocks. Great blocks everyone!!

    That'd be a little of .... Make hay while the sun shines!!
    No doubt, sewing is "good" for you while he's away ... helps to keep you busy and your mind focused on something.
    I know you miss him, as we know absence makes the ♥ grow fonder!

    Our DS still lives at home but he works long hours so I rarely see him, and he is every to cook for, keep it simple Mum. DH will be home for our anniversary next month so we might do something special, 34 years and counting.
    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.

    Hi Michelle,

    FWS is Farmers Wife Sampler. It is Laurie Hird's first book. We are doing her second book which is the Farmers Wife Pony Club. You can get the patterns from her book which comes with a CD here:
