    The FWS Pony Club Quilt-Along wk 25 July Fourth & John's Favorite Photo Page

    Well guys, another week gone by and no blocks to show...Just when I started getting back in the groove then I get sick... ughhhhhh!!!! I'll have my sister make some chicken soup for me and then I'll just hibernate for a few days... I know I'll feel better when I get some "candy". H

    Well thank you Anne for posting this early! I finished the blocks for this week and hoped that I could get them uploaded before we leave on vacation tomorrow. Yeah!!!

    I see that Termi and I have the same blue fabric, that some great friend gifted us with. I've made several blocks with this fabric now - perfect for the 4th of July Holiday coming up very soon. My flag fabric is from the same source! Thanks you so much, my friend!

    Well Well!! ... look at these blocks!

    The two of you have started the weekly show ever so nicely ... and when I get back in the saddle, I'll have to see just what I can create with those fabrics for the 4th of July block too!

    It seems that John must like mid-blue! What a coincidence that the two of you chose almost the same colour ... like the fun of yours
    Termi ... and JeanieG .... that FC has such a nice hint of blue.

    I'm going to challenge everyone to make one of the blocks in your quilt into a Canada Day block ... being that our birthday celebrations are coming up this Sunday, July 1st!!!

    MiraB and Anael ... when is your National Birthday celebration? We need to include them in the quilt too!

    Termi--great blocks. I especially like the red with circles of starts.

    Jeanie--your blocks are great too. Love the movement of the flags.

    No blocks for me this week...I was busy with quilting a lap quilt and the table runner I shared. I bought some fabric when I worked yesterday to make another table runner...this one is in 2 shades of green. I am going to add red buttons and red ribbon to make it look like wreath. Almost got it all together today, just a couple seams left.

    Looking forward to seeing what everyone else got done!

    Oh what a great idea QuiltE! It would be fun to have a block from the different Country's! Maybe they have a block that we could substitute (or add) to our blocks so everyones Country's are accounted for.

    JeanieG, I love both your blocks! I almost used my fabrics the same way you did in July Fourth. Your eagles look so much neater than mine and your horse is so pretty with the blue. Yes, thanks to our friend for the great fabric.

    Oh my gosh! What beautiful blocks. I too have that wonderful fabric from QE! I'm workin' on a way ta represent each country that each of us are from for my quilt. I'm still workin' on tryin' ta use the Mariner;s Compasses from Carol Doak's book. They are each named for different countrys. I still haven't got 'em reduced right.

    QuiltE what a wonderful sentiment, Australia Day is the 26th January.

    No blocks from me this week, I think this is the first time I have missed (I mean been late). I had a wonderful weekend with my daughter and we went to a fabulous show called Direct from New York Les Ballets Eloelle's Men in Pink Tights. It was a comedy ballet with an all male lineup. But boy could they dance and to see men dancing on pointe was amazing.

    Home on Sunday and had to help Son and Hubby with the last of the moving and setting up.

    Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to sit at my machine and get some sewing done...

    Here are mine with a "thank you" to our Canuck friend--who'd have thought fabric from Canada would show up in our July 4th blocks? I love it--we are truly an International Community.Name:  July 4th & John's Favorite.jpg

    Oh wow Jan, your quilting on these blocks is amazing. Love the little leaves and vines in John's favorite! Did you FMQ those? Awesome! And yes, so exciting to see all the same patriotic fabric in our blocks!

    Very pretty blocks Deranged! You must have been posting the same time I was!

    DD I love the background fabric in your blocks--so pretty. Great job on both blocks.
    Jeanie, thank you. I don't know if what I do counts as FMQ. I draw the quilting design on my block then just kind of top stitch along the lines. Is that FMQ? These little blocks are fun to quilt; I have to watch that I don't over-quilt them. This is so much easier than trying to do when the blocks are sewn together.

    Jan--I like your blocks too. The birds are fun. The star and vine/leaves quilting is great. Even if you don't call it FM, you did it well!

    DD--great blocks as always. I like your background fabric...I was going to say "paisley", but see it is more of a leaf...either way, I like it.

    woohoo I have my next block finished. I have been sewing in one hour blocks today, 1 hour of sewing and then 1 hour of sorting and setting up my new sewing room. It's starting to come together. (had better get it finished before DH comes home, don't want him having a heart attack when he sees the stash)
    Does anybody find projects they forget they started or had even sewn, just asking, its not me its not really

    Beautiful block, Mirab-I love that pale blue. Your quilt is going to be so pretty. And yes, when I clean my sewing room ( I believe the last time was in 1999 LOL) I found things that I didn't remember. That's why my PC quilt has some really strange fabrics--did I buy those? Glad you're back in the sewing room.

    Mirabelle--your blocks are very pretty. I like the little stars sneaking in on your 2nd one.

    I haven't been quilting too long yet so haven't forgotten any projects I've bought, however I do wonder how they can add up so fast! This month has been very productive though in the quilting dept...one quilt and table topper finished, just need to do binding on another lap quilt and finish up a wallhanging, plus a few PC blocks too. I might even have time to do both of these today. I find when it is organized it is easier to work because I *do know* what I have.

    Mirabelle...hummm...sounds like your DS has permanently lost his room...something about Mom setting up her "new" sewing room. No turning back, huh? That's a very good plan. You should have another week to get everything stashed and more out of sight. Have fun. BTY...I love your latest blocks.

    Everyone else, I've been lurking but not commenting even though I've enjoyed seeing the blocks you've postd. I have mine done and will try to post them today.

    Again a pretty pretty block, mirabelle. Yeah new space. FYI, we won't tell if you don't.
