    THE FWS PONY CLUB Quilt-Along Wk 12 Cake Stand & Christmas Tree Photo Page

    Two blocks done this week and here they are...I messed up with the xmas tree trunk section..it's upside down and staying that way. I also believe that xmas trees should be green with snowflakes all around!!

    Ok, now it's time for the candy parade !!

    Honchey ... looks like a luscious Cake on that Cake Stand .... and a perfect Christmas Tree! Of course, it should have snow flakes all around! (now you have me wondering if I can find some snow flake fabric!)

    Sharp and pointy all round! Beautiful!!!!

    Honchey, Great blocks!!

    I had some fabric issues due to operator error with the rotary cutter, so I had to improvise. (sigh)

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Beautiful blocks!
    Honchy - Your Cake Stand makes me think of tropical fruit. Hmmmm, a yummy way ta frost a cake! Oh & I love the snowflakes, dove, candles & all things Christmasey.
    Janie W - Is it a Red Velvet Cake? I love the hearts! Your Christmas tree looks like it is covered in snow!

    JanieW ... *gasp* operator error Now that never happens, does it?
    Whatever happened, nothing looks amiss ... and it looks like two more well pointed and beautiful blocks are made!!

    Anne, I love the bright colors you're using for PC, quite different from your FWS if I remember correctly. Love them both. I also switched the dark/light colors so I could have a green tree.
    Janie, first thing I thought of too was Red Velvet Cake--love the red and white. Great contrast in your Christmas tree block. Very pretty!

    Here are mine for this week:

    Honchey...I would never guess your tree trunk was upside down. Every point is perfect and it looks great. I noticed on your cake stand that you're teasing us with an extra dollap of frosting. Very original and again all of your points are perfect.

    JanieW...Snowy Christmas Tree with the perfect background. And the Cake Stand...Improvision is the very foundation of quilting. I had to look twice to see what it might have been. Great recovery!

    JanR....your Christmas tree looks so festive. Love the blues in the cake stand.

    All...wonderful eye candy for a Wednesday morning with coffee. I'm in the garden again today without a prospect of much time at the sewing. I'll be watching for more.

    Honchey, I can't see anything upside down either! Your blocks are great! On the left side there might be just a bit too much cake on the stand

    JanieR, lovely christmastree block! I had to look several times before I noticed the operator error!

    JanR, the blocks are beautiful!

    Here are mine for this week. The Christmas Tree block was the first block I made.

    Beautiful blocks!! I will simply sit in the chuck wagon and enjoy the quilt block show; then look and be amazed again how wonderful they are. None for me to show until next week.

    WOW! Looks like we're all up with the birds ..... and with all this incredible weather that we all seem to be having!

    JanRN ... Your cake has me drooling with the purple fabric mix! And a perfectly decorated Christmas trees with all those red lights on it!

    Anael ... another fancy birthday cake! Your Christmas Tree was your first? I guess you did it while you were still in the Christmas spirit! That's a great green fabric ... love the overspray look of it!

    The block was so easy...too good to be true. I never noticed the extra serving of cake!!! I'm not going to change it...that's the extra piece for the baker!

    Ladies, All the blocks are great.

    JanRN, I'm trending towards novelty prints for whatever reason....just using what pulls me, fits the block and whatever supply is on hand.

    Anael, love the fabric you used in both blocks. Perfect points, too-beautiful.

    Termi, how clever-carrot cake and your Christmas tree is gorgeous.

    *giggles*
    Termi ... I'll confess! .... I saw your comment about your "favourite" cake, and then looked and all I thought was, ummmm what kind, Tiger Tail? I guess all I saw was the black and orange and thought of the ice cream! I think it must be time for my late morning tea, don't you think? Now once I "opened" my eyes, I did the virtual slap in the forehead and SMILED and said, bang on, she nailed it!! And that you did ... and then followed it up with a well done Christmas tree, complete with snowflakes!!!

    Anael...your Christmas tree is classic. Really looks good. I'm intrigued how you used a fairly large print for the cake stand but it didn't detract from the block pattern at all. I'll have to try that.

    Termi...your carrot cake looks yummy...and with the stripes in the Christmas Tree...it looks like peppermint candy! You brought dessert to the trail ride! Thanks.

    Mirabelle, your blocks are always worth waiting for. I just love the colors you are using. They are soft but incorporate just enough brightness, like the red stars. Very pretty and so well done!
