    The FWS Pony Club Quilt-Along wk 17 Everyone's Favorite & Fishing Boat Photo Page

    While at the LQS Mouse Creek Quilts I checked out the scrap basket and garnered about 3 total yds of fabric (large pieces) and discovered a piece of sailboat fabric at the bottom...that's after I purchased a 1/4 yd of anchor fabric...drats!!! You can now see the sailboats in the block!!!

    Honchey ... great fabrics all round! Good for you for drawing on your own memories in choosing your fabrics. Doing so, gives us all, so much more meaning and attachment to what we are doing.

    My blocks are done ... I'm too tired to mess around with the camera tonight, so will do so tomorrow.
    Since I made mine, this song has been going thru my mind ....
    I'm sure if I'd thought of it first, it would have influenced my fabric choices?

    So now, I'm wondering if
    Honchey was thinking much the same as I?

    ... OMG ... now that's amazing your sail fabrics! Absolutely unvbelievable!!! It really does make it look 3-D. And better still with your Golden Gate bridge and the sea horses!

    Loving what you all have done with this week's blocks. You are all so creative. Little boats, Golden Gate Bridge and some really bright sails.
    I , on the other hand am perfect example of what happens when you sew late at night and your brain is mush. I thought I had enough apple fabric, but when I was half way through realized I wasn't even close. So I put polka dots where apples should be. I am trying to choose fabric to keep the spirit of the story so I really wanted apples this time.

    Good job, JanieW; I like the apples and the polka dot in that block. I love Wednesdays and the block show. The "wave" in my boat sails is in the novelty print I used in a previous quilt...from the 12 month quilt block book.

    Honchey, so glad you found the sailboat fabric, your block is so cute, bright and colorful. Great job!

    QNS, you are so creative! Those sails are really waving and the bridge looks fabulous! Great job on both!

    mirabelle, gorgeous blocks! Nice job!

    gardnergal970, great job on both, I really like the colors, especially the orange.

    wendiq, how cute your sailboat is. Love the colors on both. Great job!

    JanieW, don't know how I missed you. The colors in EF go so well together. The polka dots add to it. I think it's good you ran out of apple fabric. Great idea using the cloud fabric for your boat, very, very pretty!

    Oh myyyyyyyyy ....... what you ladies have produced!

    QNSue ... seems I missed your EvFav posting ... as always innovative you are, and the priceless Don't Fence Me In. I think that is all about you!

    MiraB ... yours are always so precious and calming!

    GGal ... incredible FC on those twinkling stars. Your sails too look like they are billowing in the wind!

    WendiQ ... a perfect blend of blues for the sailboat, and complete with starry sails! Great contrasts and FC for EvFav!

    JanieW ... your mushy brain thinks well and I think you have a better block by needing to add the polka dots as it gave more variety and let those apples show themselves more! ITA that your cloud fabric was a perfect choice ... you'll see a different cloud fabric in mine!

    I couldn't wait to photo/post for later today ... just had to do it now!!! (one of the good/bad parts of a home office!)
    Another one here, who didn't flip the sails! A slight design change ... I thought the boat needed to be "in" the water! And Patches will be delighted to see that it's not rain coming from those clouds!

    Will have to post pics later; coffee shop wifi if "iffy" today. What a great quilt block show to see today!

    Anne-great piecing as always and I love your bright colors and story.
    QNS-you always "wow" me with your choices. Love the sails waving and the wild horses in EF.
    Mirabelle-beautiful; calm but colorful. Love the green with the roses.
    Ggal-great color choices. I especially like the fabric in en EF.
    Wendiq-love those stars in the sky!
    JanieW-great save using the polka dots--they really add a pop to your block.

    I have to watch all the oohing and aahing I do here in the coffee shop---I get some really strange looks!

    JanRN ... oh those coffee shop people are just all too jealous!

    Patches ... don't eat too many of them. It's not good for your tummy and you do have to be able to run and jump after those balls and frisbies!!

    QNSue ... Eagle Eyed you are! That block's all about youuuuu, all 3 fabrics, plus of course, for my anchor yellow. Yes those star/snowflakes were tricky devils to FC/PP!!!

    Wendig...so peacefully sailing under the puffy white clouds. Both block very good

    JanieW...I would never have seen the polka dots. Great recovery...not a mistake.

    QuiltE...watch out below...and they talk about raining cats and dogs. At least they are cushioned by fur. Be sure and wear your hard hat! Your other block is so precise. Love the snowflake fussy cutting.

    JanRN...can't wait to see what you have for us. Does your Mom quilt too?

    I made the sail boat but decided to substitute a block with some ponies (thank you, Anne). I'm not sure what I was thinking (or drinking) when I did Everyone's Favorite but I sure mixed up the color placement. Let's call it Artistic License (not oops!)

    JanRN ... both are great blocks and perfectly done! What a pretty floral print and we can continue to see it making appearances in future blocks too. Your EvFav is definitely a favourite for me, as it looks like a cousin to MiraB's fabrics!

    QuiltE, oh what fun in your boat block, just beautiful! The cloud fabric looks very familiar. Great contrast in EF and beautiful fabrics. Great job on both!

    JanRN, your EF is just beautiful. I think it looks great! Love your pony block too, nice job on both!
