    Oh grannyQ, it's so good to see your blocks and hear from you. Sounds like you were the cog that kept all of the wheels of the farm going. Did you have a large flock of sheep? We're your kids in 4-H? I love your blocks.

    OKSGlad ... I seem to remember you have been busy!!!!! And now have been in the sewing room doing some PhDs! That's all good news. I'm hoping for a SnEw Day tomorrow!!!! Oh how I can legitimize it all. Your block is soon to come!

    Some fabrics I spotted that you might like ...

    Too bad we didn't have this for PC. Would have given us nine FC farm animals! (I know, doesn't really fit your PC quilt ... though you may have other uses for the fabric. Do you think that could be a Jersey? Sorry, but I don't think it's a Guernsey

    Love the ponies, I mean donkeys, in your first block QE. Please name that block after moi!! That green in the second block is one of my favorite fabrics. Great job on both.

    Thanks Ladies!

    JanRN ... for sure I'll smile every time I see your "ponies" or IRL!!! All part of the good memories from our travels along the trails. The green was border fabric in the first quilt I did back when I started quilting again. I loved it then and still do, and luckily still have a good chunk of it in my stash.

    and then I had leftovers from that sampler, and made this one

    And ... still with leftovers, my avatar quilt was made. I got carried away making the strips, so then had enough for a smaller version of the avatar along with two table runners, adding in the black/grey fabric. Sadly, the cream print is finished, except for some scraps ... though it's surprising how many of the prints are in my PC/FWS!

    The first is about 110" square.
    The second, only about 85" square and was totally just me playing with the fabrics. I'd made extras of the blocks as I was hooked and then decided which went into the first quilt. Then did the centre four for the 2nd. I think I have 3 more in the holding zone!

    FYI--I saw those donkeys and did think of you JanRN!
    OH OH these are just lovely QE--thanks so much for sharing. Isn't it ironic when we get to the last bit of a favorite fabric it is so hard to let go?

    Yeah that cow looks like a Jersey--you can tell by the eyes! DDIL would love it. Did I tell you she has bought 6 of them from her DM? More big brown eyed cows in the OK herd!
    When Z was a baby I found the Makower tractor fabric with a green background. The nice thing about this fabric too is that the tractors look like modern tractors with no corporate logos splashed all over.

    Yes indeed ... the tractors are great! And to boot, assorted "breeds" not just one featured.
    Hip Hip Hooray for DDIL and some darling brown cows in the OK Corral!
    Now if only Makower had a print of ALL Jerseys to coordinate!!!

    You mentioned Swiss being a no-go for fabric awhile ago ... is someone in the family partial to them?

    Lovely quilts QuiltE! I love that cream fabric too, maybe you can find some more for a future quilt. It sure tied those two together nicely!

    Thganks JeanieG ... Yes, sad that it's finishd now ... but I think I've used it more than enough!

    Here is my Maud's Album Quilt block.

    The pink fabric is one I designed and dyed. Beet juice gave me a light brown base. Then pink mixed with white painted on, then pink mixed with less white then a spray of the full strength pink. I'm having fun playing with fabric and dye. Soon, I hope to get a bit more serious about it and not just do small pieces.

    Fantastic, w4me! The colors blend so well with your focus fabric. How much of this new fabric do you have to use in other blocks? As QE says this will be a very unique special quilt.
