    Beautiful wheel! The clover looks like it will be wonderful when it stops giving you fits!

    I had a horrible time with the Captains Wheel I seam ripped the intersections four times and it still stinks! I am afraid I will rip the fabric if I do it again so for now it is what it is I guess. I will finish my clover tomorrow night but for now here is my Wheel block.

    I hear you with the Clover leaf, Honchey. I did a "bit" of frog stitching on mine.

    The spokes on my wheel are backwards from the one in the book because I forgot to do mirror image when I printed the pattern. Oh well. Love the horses in Honchey's and LovingIzabella's. They look so good.

    Honchey ... ooo la la for the Captain's Wheel .you couldn't have had a better fabric combo. Your Clover Leaf is going to be a match when it cooperates. Sometimes it's better to just walk away til a new day comes!

    ♥Iz ... I know you are disappointed ... yet I think it looks wonderful!

    JanieW ... great green mix and it looks like it all came together well! Cute horsemen in the Captain's Wheel and I really like the batiks for the spokes.

    DublB ... what? no patriotic plate? Those are REALLY nice!! I'm sure that the ladies at your retreat liked them and are enjoying them in their homes. Maybe you can give us some lessons on your decoupage plates during our Spring Break? These two blocks should work well for your fabrics!

    Here's my two ... I dealt with the mirror image for the Clover Leaf and then totally forgot about it til I was almost done for the Captain's Wheel.... so I muttered at myself, "Does it really matter?" And answered with a big loud Nope!!

    Well done, QuiltE. You worked in your yellows really well. Your clover leaf fabrics are well chosen.

    If ever Santa said "Yee Haw", it was in that centre block. great fussy cutting. I love it.

    Yes, I think a few of us have lucked out on the Cowboy Santa!!! I just wish I could have worked in the Merry Christmas, but thought I needed something dark to frame it up. Maybe it will show up in a later block?

    So you caught on to the partriotic plate comment,
    DublB?

    JanieW ... I think with the block name of Clover Leaf and recent St. Paddy's day we're all thinking green for sure! I've used that dark a LOT. The light was a FQ I got recently ... I didn't realize til I went to work with it that it looks like it's dirty ... a splotchy tea stained look. In the smaller pieces it looks a little odd ... definitely as though it's stained. Though it does help it blend a little with the yellow.

    Betty62 ... glad that you are enjoying the blocks. I'll echo DublB's invitation for you to join us on the trail. Think of how much more you'd enjoy them each week!


    The yellow .... a better colour representation this week. Last week's had a very washed look.

    And again you all made lovely blocks! Honchey, you will get there Just take it easy! (It's hard to type with a cat sitting on my hands!!)

    dublb: gorgeous plates! I would love to have some of them

    Here's my Captain's Wheel. I still have to do the Clover Blossom but I don't have clover fabric so I have to think of something else. Name:  AnaelCaptain'sWheel (587 x 589).jpg

    Love your blocks everyone! You've done a great job with the FCing.

    I didn't really have any problems just ran out of time to finish Clover Leaf..should be able to finish on Thursday.

    Aah-my favorite morning of the week and you ladies certainly didn't disappoint!
    Anne-I have a block on my sewing table that looks just like your Clover Leaf LOL. I do like the peaceful feeling of your Captain's Wheel.
    April-these blocks are hard (at least I think so) and I love the fabric use you used.
    Janie-great blocks as usualy and I love your little cowboys.
    QE-I rarely use yellow but I'm loving it in your blocks--very pretty, adds a "spark".
    Anael-love your block with the great fussy cutting and such pretty green.
    Bev- please don't show your plates--all I need is another "addiction" LOL. I love them and would like to try decoupage some day. They are beautiful.
    Carrie-love your fabric. Those blocks are so pretty in those colors.
    Betty-you are so kind with all your compliments; glad you're following along with our little journey.

    Here are my blocks for this week:

    Honchey..your CW does look dreamy...the horses so content. The half square triangle points look good. Press on and you will conquer.

    LIz...like someone said , yours looks like the painted desert. Beautiful.

    JanieW...cute cowboy in CW and your pinwheels are pristine.

    Dubib...your plates are gorgeous. #3 particularly looks like a quilt block. Once a quilter, always a quilter, huh?

    QuiltE...on the first day of the showing and you have both blocks beautifully done. It sure helps to have the FW out of the house doesn't it? Hope your taxes don't give you fits too long. Can you fill on line like we do here in the States? That sure has made it easier for me. I can do all of the formulas, etc, but it is so much easier to just give the sw the information and have it fill in the blanks where needed!

    Anael...you CW is lovely. Great FCC.

    Carrie...I like your fabric choices for CW although I suspect the colors are really more red if that really is your sashing that it's laying on. Will you be sashing as you go?

    I'll be back with this weeks during the recess but will be posting the last couple of weeks later today.

    JanieW-Thank you for the kind words on my horse. I completey forgot about the mirror image and now realize all of my blocks so far are wrong (good thing it is only three!) Not sure I am going to redo them all though. I may redo the Wheel as I am not happy with the way it looks. I am not sure if it is the corners that bug me, the spokes in the wrong direction or the lack of color separation. I love the painted desert this brings because that was the feel of the original fabric that I fell in love with and wanted to keep but....
    I love your blocks! The clover is perfect and your little cowboys in the center of the wheel are perfect. I love the FC!


    dublb-I love your plates! I decoupage but never thought to do it with the fabric on plates. Beautiful thank you for sharing!

    QuiltE-I love love your Cowboy Santa and what a great job on the FC. Your two blocks look wonderful. Love them too! and I have to agree..I don't think it matters either and am keeping the ones already made the way they are. Unless I redo them...then I will fix the mirror issue lol

    Anael-Your Wheel is beautiful! I love the horses and the FC spokes. Great job.

    CarrieM-Love the fabrics you are using and your blocks look wonderful!

    JanRN-thank you for the kind words. These blocks are tough but I hope by the end of them I will have grown some in my skills. I love your blocks and especially that beautiful birdie! Great job! And I see your spokes are right..Whaaaa!! I so messed this block up

    garndergal970-Thank you for the kind words. I wanted the painted desert look but I am doubting the block as it appears to like in color with not enough pop....

    I cannot wait to see more blocks and get my clover done. It has nothing at all to do with green or clovers lol Want to know what my lucky charm err clover will be???? Guess y'all have to wait and see.....

    Hugs

    Carrie, your blocks are lovely. The fabric is beautiful!

    JanRN: what a gorgeous bird! Your CW is bright and beautiful, gives me an idea of what I can do!

    April, just hang in there. Some blocks are easy and some aren't. Your fuzzy cutting is great and I love your fabric!

    Good morning! So nice to see so beautiful blocks this morning.

    Honchey - I love your block. You know, those tiny half square triangles are also making me mad. Love your green fabrics. When done it will be very beautiful

    LovingIsabella - The horse running on the desert really looks like a paiting. I do love it.

    JanieW - I love the central cowboys. Love both the way they are. I did the same error on my Captain's Wheel.

    dublb - Gourgeos decoupage plates, all of them reminds me pieces of quilt blocks, I love the one with red triangles. Quilt E had a great idea, give us some lesson during the Easter break.

    Quilt E - Beautiful blocks and beautiful clover leaves fabric. Santa looks great in the center of the wheel. Very well done.

    Anael - Beautiful work, your block looks great.

    Carriem - Love those blues. The clover leaf block looks as it will be just beautiful when done. Great work.

    JanR - Love your bright version of clover leaf, beautiful turquoise. The central bird on the wheel is just something, so beautiful, looks so real. Love your block.

    Here is my 1st block for this week: Captain's Wheel. Hope to find some time to have the 2nd block done soon.

    I'm just going to say to one and all.....FANTASTIC FABRICS AND BLOCKS MADE! I am not taking the time to single out each one of you "stars of quilting". You know who you are and you deserve all the accolades given.....

    I didn't have any clover print so I reverted to my "Cowboy/Cowgirl" theme......I am skipping the Captain's Wheel....it's beyond my patience level.....LOL! I may make a substitute, but I have a lot on my plate the next couple of weeks, so I may skip a few of these next ones and catch up later.....

    I just love Wednesdays!! So much to ooh & aah over.
    Arte: love the way your pony seems to be jumping right off the fabric-great block.
    Wendiq: your little cowpokes make me smile--they are too cute. I found a few blocks coming up that I'm going to skip/substitute. I got the y-seams done okay in a couple of blocks but I agree: why stress? I learned the technique, don't like it, and won't do it (she says as she stomps her foot like a 2 year old LOL!!)

    Anael - Your white horse looks alive! Such great FC skills!
    Carrie - Your Clover leaf is going ta be beautiful. Nice Captian's wheel! Your fabric choices are always beautiful, these blocks are no exception. Your sashing & cornerstone fabric will be a great accent.
    Jan - I love that turquoise. Your bird is darling! Those greens are a perfect accent for her.
    GG - You're doing better at catching up than I am! Good going!
    Loveing - Your Captian's Wheel is beautiful! Don't you dare change it! You accomplished that Painted Desert look perfectly! (Please don't change it.)
    Art - That horse looks so happy! He's free! Your color choices are, as always, perfect for him. I also like your new avatar. So pretty!
    Windi - Great block, & so in keeping with the pony club theme. Those little cowpokes are darling!

    In regards to my plates. I used cheater cloth fabrics 'cause I wanted a quilted theme. I made 4 of each 'cause We had hoped that 12 people would go ta the retreat. Only 10 came so I ended up with 2 of the bird plates! Debbie hosted the retreat so I gave her another one of the #3 plates. (I kept forgetting ta count myself as one of the 10! So I kept thinking that someone didn't git their plate! Talk about feeling sheepish!)

    Wow, another week of beautiful blocks! Love to see them all.

    Honchey, I like the fabrics you will be using for CL. Your CW looks great, the center is a beautiful scene!

    LovingIzabella, I absolutely love the fabrics you used, they are gorgeous!!! Great job!

    JanieW, cute fabrics in CL, are those tiny stars? Beautiful green. Very cute center in CW, well done!!

    dublb, your plates are just gorgeous!!! what a great idea!

    QuiltE, your CL is beautiful with the green and yellow. Love that smiling horse in CW. He looks like he's very proud of something. Very pretty star fabric in the background. As always, great job!!

    anael, very cute fabric in CW, a beautiful horse and cowboy stuff including a quiver of arrows! Nice job!!

    Carriem, beautiful fabrics in both blocks, love that plum color. Nice work!!

    JanRN, what a pretty shade of blue in CL and your points are perfect!! Very pretty blue bird in CW. We have them checking out our bird houses. That's one beautiful block!!

    ArteEmCasa, in CW the brown and green look so great together. The small green print is so cute. Great horse fabric too and nice job!!

    wendiq, Oh, how cute!!!!! It's stunning the way the colors work together, great job!!!

    Well I guess I'll show you mine. Not too happy with CW. I too forgot about the mirror image plus the corners of the block don't line up. Don't know what the heck happened.

    Lots to drool over this morning.

    I am admiring your plates, dublb, very creative.

    Anael,.. good for you getting your spokes on the wheel going the right way. I love your colours, that green is so soft.

    carriem.. such rich colours, they make your blocks look great well done.

    JanRN.. good job on those bleeping Y seams. I really like your blue clover leaf, but the soft greens and bluebirs are just superb.

    ArteEmCasa..your horse is just terrific. Again I am impressed by your work and the colours in your fabrics.

    Wendyq... your little people are so cute. What a neat idea.

    Termi.. the wagon wheels add a new look to that block. I am a sheep lover so really like the idea to put them in among your clover.
