    It seems to be shades of purple to be the color of choice in the Pansy block and what beautiful shades as well, Jeanie and Honchey. The OIT lends itself to some really nice FC and Jeanie your's is no exception. Great blocks.

    Oh yes! Such lovely blocks!
    Honchey - I really like your OIT. I was only able ta guess that it was yours because it was first. Very striking! Your pansy is purple & gold. Very nice!
    QNS - Yes, we all know that ya march ta the beat o' a different drummer! These blocks are no exception. I like pansies in your Pansy! I also felt that your OIT did depict a wild trail. Great blocks.
    Mirabelle - Your roses do make an awesome OIT. I too can't see my fabric makin' a pansy so I'll do a sub also. Your Maple leaf is perfect! I recognized 'em right away.
    Anael - Such a beautiful Pansy! I wish I could plant some pansies, just way too dry.
    Jan - The movement in your OIT just makes it. Beautiful Pansy. My kids always like me ta plant purple & gold pansies, 'cause that is their school colors. DH & I went ta the other HS here in town so I would some times plant maroon & white pansies just ta annoy my kids.
    Jeanie - I think your horses are very happy on your OIT. Great FCing! Love the purple & pink pansy, nice contrast!

    JeanieG, do tell us the way you would want to exchange [Wouldn't that make a beautiful quilt, if we all exchanged just that one block! ] with all of us on the PC trail. Remember, it would be roses to Aussie Mirabelle, not pansies. How many of us are there now?

    Oh this would be fun! Another option might be if we each did a block that represented our our own location. (ie. I would do something TX.) Make 'em all scrappy. If ya'll don't want ta do this I'll do what ever ya'll vote on. One block or location blocks it'll be fun!

    LOL, it was just an "off the top of my head" type of comment! I was just thinking how beautiful all the pansy blocks turned out.

    I am interested. Questions...

    Is this a swap where we make everyone a block? Or I send one person a block and that person sends someone else a block? I like the idea of making an "Iowa" type block. The quilt shop where I work has LOTS of novelties, but since I am not using them in my PC blocks, it would be fun to get a few FQs of "farm stuff" to make you all a block to think of Iowa...of course I would sneak in a little KT to remind you of me.

    As long as there are no y seams, I'm in!! I like the idea of making blocks representing our hometown like Carrie's idea of "Iowa" blocks. Hmm.......

    I had pictured that we were makin' a block for everyone. I'll do what ever everyone wants. It would be cool ta git a farm novilty block from you.

    Hey it would be nice to get a 'pure' Texan block. Yeah, I have corn, pigs and produce fabric that could be an "Iowa" block, but no 'donkey' to represent Missouri' s symbol. Maybe I would need to cut out some chickens, ducks and turkeys...guineas, too..or go with the dogwood bloom...I like that latter thought.

    How many blocks are we really talking about making? Honchey, QuiltE, JanRN, JeanieG, GGal, Oksewglad, Mirabelle, Dublb, me and how many more????Would not want to leave anyone out that might want to do this!! So sound off on who would...and see if its possible....have you heard of the custom design T shirt place?

    Iowa is my place of birth and through HS...so maybe I am more Iowan than Missouri...am living almost on the border. Which state will Honchey claim??

    Well, I'm certainly not cutting anymore chicken blocks that's for sure!!! I'm a Jersey Girl thru and thru!!! I'm not sure but I think that our state flower is the violet...I'll see what I can come up with...You won't believe this......The State of NJ animal is the horse...is this an omen or what!!!! maybe I'll do a horse with violets around his neck...what do they call the wreath of flowers when they win a race placed around the neck????

    We have some "goldfinch" fabric at the shop...state bird. Hmmm maybe I could get that and do a little fussy cutting. Decisions, decisions.....

    On the size, I am thinking stick with the 8" finished?? That way if we want to choose a block from PC we can. I found an 8" Iowa Star pattern and have been trying to think of how I can put all my Iowa thoughts together...

    That's a great idea Carrie. They would make great subs for some of the blocks that just didn't work out and give us such wonderful memories of this ride. I haven't searched anything out but I live on the banks of the Wabash so was thinking of something along that line. I'll get looking.

    Oh, Oh, Oh, Since I'm gonna do QAYG, the ones Ya'll send can go on the back, (since my colors are R,Cream & B!) Or I could just make myself a PC memory quilt. Again this could be fun.

    Or we could just make your block in your colors. But then there are Mirabells beautiful roses....a little challenging.
