    GGal ... Oh so nice! The background of the pinwheel block gives it such a look of motion. I like the three tone contrast you've created. And then some blue sky jumps in amidst the bolts of lightening!!

    Thanks all. Wheel is the name of the block I used instead of the Indian.

    Sunglasses everyone Please!!! This is the closest I could imagine for Lightning from my stash..I used it for another block..can't remember which one...I'm going to use another Kansas block..I'm joining Jan as far as "Y" seams go..that's unless it's easy...I'm doing the easy ones first and then the tough ones inbetween....that's between "Rosie"...crumbs...postage stamps...Carol Doak mystery BOM 2012, Yahoo FWS "Mystery"...

    There's a new host for the Yahoo FWS Pony Club Group...She has added a "mystery BOM...has nothing to do with the Pony Club Quilt_Along...she's trying to generate "interest" amonst the members there...12" blocks..3 a month? I'm adding them to the blocks from the 2012 Carol Doak Mystery...one a month. I will be doing them in assorted reds and white on whites..I only have 2 blocks from Carol Doak's group done...and they are very pretty...I always wanted to do a red /white quilt...I will post some photos later...H.

    Blue flames + lightning + one HOT block!
    These red and whites are going to make a fantastic quilt.

    Emily just saw lightning in the sky--maybe rain is coming. We can pray!

    Anne, love the fabric in Lightening-really does look like it's streaking across the sky.

    Those red & white blocks are so striking. I always wanted to do a 2 color quilt; let me add that to my list.

    Looking through the blocks for inspiration and ideas for lightening 'cause I do not like what I have done...and now have some new ideas that might work better. You all have very nice blocks.!!

    Amazing lightening fabric with horses jumping around in a frenzy!
    You have some of the best stories,
    QNSue to go along with your blocks.
    I keep nudging you ... pleeeeeeeeeease get these stories written down!

    Keep them both ... and make your decision when you decide on the block placements.

    I don't like the lightning block so I made a sub. It's called Shadow Rays and the pattern is from the Quilter's Cache.Name:  AnaelShadowRays (606 x 608).jpg

    I am seeing the quilters cache blocks a whole new way, Anael, and loving your choice of colors that make the block lovely and pop!!! Love that combination of blue; that would look great on a quilt top, repeating itself. IF I have not down loaded the pattern, I will go back and correct my error and down load it. Good job.

    Thanks so much QNSue and carriem! I agree, it would look great on a quilt top but I get bored making the same blocks over and over again!
    The Quilter's Cache is a great source of blocks and I love the site! I almost always find a block I like in the right size

    Anael...what a beautiful block. I've investigated quilter's cache and found many 8 inch blocks that aren't pp or have y seams and have made a couple for this next week. A great site

    Thanks GG! I love pp and don't mind y seams
    You can do this one without pp too, just make templates with the pp foundation pattern.

    Thanks for the substitute block, Anael. It looks great as usual. White center stars draws you in and then the eyes follow the "rays".
