    I don't know about "pretties" but here are mine. I substitued All Those Squares (from QuiltersCache) for Kansas. I wanted to have some farm scenes (and quite honestly I didn't want to do y-seams).Name:  All Those Squares & Lightning.jpg

    JanRN, I love your substitution block with the farm scenes and the fabric in lightening looks so dramatic, just like a lightening storm. Great job on both!!

    Here are mine. I messed up on lightening. When I squared it I took too much off the right hand side so I'm going to do it over but you get the gist of it.
    I still need more practice adding corner squares on Kansas.

    Thank you both for such nice comments.
    Termi, congrats--your Kansas block it great. You have nice colors and good contrast and you nailed those **blasted y- seams. I really like the colors you used in Lightning.

    I played my game of guessin' which blocks belong ta who.
    Jan - I love the contrast in your Lighting. When i first saw your 'All those squares " I thought that Artemcasa was back.(Has anyone heard from her?) They are awesome farm scenes!
    Termi - Ya nailed 'em!!! Lovely blocks.
    mirabelle - I knew that those were yours right off. Beautiful!

    JanRN ... what a pretty alternate block and I'm sure you knew I'd love to see the farm scenes! Angry stormy sky there!

    Termi ... Well done on that Kansas block! Looks nice and flat, straight, square and pointy in all the right places! OOPS on the lightening ... it happens! Nice effect with the bandana fabric.

    MiraB ... what else do we say when we see your beautiful blocks! Always so beautiful and this week, no exception!

    Kansas? ... As I looked at it ... if anyone wants to do it and avoid Y-seams. you could switch it to HSTs and still get the same look, just more seams!

    DublB
    ... no, not a word from ArteEC. I know she was dealing with family health problems.

    Anael ... Me-thinks this should be about now that you'll be back from holidays? Do hope you had a wonderful time and got lots of R+R and are now ready to R .......... esume! "D

    You're right QuiltE, I'm back and I kind of fell off the Pony wagon. I have a lot of catching up to do! I think I have 36 blocks so do the math LOL. I just made a to-do list as I'm behind of lots of projects
    The weather in France was great, lots of sunshine, only one day cloudy and no sunshine. We weren't very active, mostly beach and a walk in the evening so yes, lots of R + R

    Mirab, what pretty blocks! Makes me wish I had "softer" tastes instead " in your face" colors LOL. Great job on both of them.
    Anael, welcome back.

    JanR...what great fussy cutting and such a nice balance in the sub block. I'm with you on the bold colors. I'm stepping outside my usual though with a BOM called U-Taupeio I'm doing locally and I could get used to it...at least once in awhile.

    Mirabelle...looks like you're back in the swing of things. I can't wait to see your finished quilt. No one will ever guess that it was made on the pony trail.

    Termi...you really nailed the Kansas block. Maybe just a little frame on one side of lightening would be enough rather than starting all over again.

    Anael...welcome back! No one else has been brave enough to admit how far behind they are but I can assure you, there are other riders in the rear but we all make up the PC and we couldn't do without them. As someone said, this is not a race. Hang in there and do what you can. We welcome your contribution.

    Sounds like a perfect holiday,
    Anael! Welcome Back!!!

    I think I left off at 36 (or maybe 38) ... so I'm travelling with you in the dust of the forerunners!! Though it looks like I may be left behind, as with your list in hand, it looks like you'll be movin' on!

    Jan--just love your substitution and colors will work well in your quilt. Perfect fabric for the lightning block, too.
    Termi--love the colors in your K block! Paisleys are just the right size for the lightning block.
    mirabelle--ahahah, so pretty.
    Anael and QE as well as any others in the dust: At the rate I'm going the leaders of the pack will be eating my dust as they lap me!!!! But who cares we are all enjoying the trip.

    Ladies, you all have very pretty blocks, love all the different colors and makes each block your own. I haven't done the lightning block yet, and I just might do a sub for it, but here is mine for the week.

    OKSGlad ... and don't forget DDamsel's blues! They're all blue-tiful!

    Latrinka ... Welcome! Hope you're going to join in on the PC block making with us!

    GrannyQ ... what a pretty block! Is that a hint of pink/mauve in the bakcground? or a WOW, where the colours are not showing true?
