    The FWS Pony Club Quilt-Along Wk 38 Rambling Road & Rain or Shine Discussion Page

    That ole Buck bucked the greenhorn duke off every morning all summer long; the duke never gave up, and Ole Buck never failed to throw him over the fence. Until the morning a young pretty gal shows up and rides him first...and Ole Buck was a gentleman prancing around the corral with her, never offered to buck or crow hop with the lady on his back. Greenhorn Duke gave up, and let the ladies of the ranch ride Ole Buck. End of block tale for the week.

    Thanks for the memories this past week PC riders....and JanRN great news of a LA in her house, then she shows us a picture of her house and a snow storm that cooled all of us off, and brought more memories to the ride. Wonderful week.

    Who else has their block done for the week?

    Yinz have given me so much encouragement--thank you. I really wasn't sure about the Sweet 16 but thanks to all of you I have no buyer's remorse. Now I need to keep practicing--I made some pretty good loopy loops today LOL. I posted my blocks; they were not quilted on new machine--I have a ways to go before I dare try something important. Glad everyone has been chatting again this week. Seems last week was quiet; I need my morning PC thread visit with my tea every day!

    Had some good news about Patches today (finally). He's been so sick all week. We took him to the vet and he said he just has an upper respiratory infection, treating with antibiotics. He has very little feeling in left hind leg but his other 3 legs are strong enough for him to get around and over all he's fine. He's had 2 doses and seems better already. Keep your fingers crossed. This has been going on since January.

    Jan--wishing a speedy recovery to Patches. My dog Silk (9 yo) has had a tough summer with the heat. Those darn border collies have a extra layer of hair close to the skin--keeps them warm in winter, but hot in summer. So this has been hard on her. The delightful fall weather and she's perking right up again.
    I am hoping to get back to PC soon, Maybe next week. Tomorrow my DS and BIL drive in on their way back to PA from WA state. Getting some last minute cleaning done, and then washer decided to have a mind of its own again. GRRRR. Problem solved but behind so off I go to get the dining room and kitchen floors mopped, And yes they need to be done--all sorts of dirt and grime on them. Probably won't hear from me until after Friday when the house is quiet once again. Night all.
    Don't worry spider.

    I agree, QNSue...a wonderful week. I was missing the chatter last week. Jan, I'm glad you're enjoying your new toy. I can only imagine what you will come up with. Good news about Patches...and I loved the snowy picture.
    OKSewGlad...enjoy your company and clean floors. There is a different kind of dirt when living on the farm and it all seems to collect where the traffic goes. Your kitchen and dining room are well used!
    Mirabelle, I'm going to look up that Leah Day site. Quilting designs are a new adventure for me and quite intimidating.

    Hello All!

    I have been busy in the clubhouse yesterday and today. Didn't get this week's blocks done, but I did get caught up with the "Rosie" blocks (4 of them) now that I have fabric I like. Tomorrow and Friday I plan to do some more PC blocks...not sure yet if I will just cut for the last few blocks or sew ones already cut. Thinking I will cut so I can sew WITH you all instead of always being behind!

    I've enjoyed the chatter too! So much fun getting to know you all a little better...off to look at the new block thread.

    I ordered the fabric from Hancocks o' Paducah for the attic windows. I intend ta do this on these blocks instead o' sashin'. Well it's on back order. I wanted it ta go through the bank right away. Talk about frustratin'.

    Great minds think alike....BB...I am doing attic windows around my PC if I last...doing 90 of them is a bit of work....but I like the 'leather' frame look for each of them. May not have enough material and that would not make me happy. Or having it go to back order...so I can understand the thoughts...you could cancel and order from elsewhere...

    Oh, dh Aunt had decided now I can mend her lap quilt that is torn on the back side since I made her memorial quilt for her...no good deed goes unpunished...and BIL was not at home yesterday after we drove the distance for our last tomatoes of the season and took him sweet potatoes and walnuts. Wasted a whole day, bright spot was using our picnic basket to share with his cousin & wife...who are currently building their haunted house for Halloween paying visitors..

    Hello All ...
    Still room here for this wayward PC'er?
    Hoping to be back in the saddle and on trails with you again soon.

    Looks like I am way behind in more than the blocks.
    yeaaaaaaa JanRN on your new acquisition!
    Life's too short, so go ahead and ENJOY your new machine!

    Two fairs the last two weekends ... first one, I just took stuff to it. The second I was there for the week and worked!! Another Fair on Thanksgiving weekend (in Canada, that's the weekend after the one coming up). Again, it'll just be a fun one for me and non-working!

    I know some of you have already found these threads ....

    QE--Of course you are still welcome!! I don't know you as well as some, but always enjoy your comments and input! Congrats on the ribbons! Your FW quilt is so very pretty...I don't know that I ever saw it all finished. I really like the gold cornerstones and setting triangles.

    I didn't get any sewing done today but was able to cut fabric for 5 more blocks. I have next week's blocks cut so will sew those first and should even have them done "on time".

I plan on puttin' mine on the back o' my PC quilt. Git w/Carrie for the details. It would be awesome ta git a block from you.

    And obviously, this is more of what I need to get caught up on!!!
    Thanks DublB for helping to get me back in the loop!

    Yes, bring on the details,
    Ladies!!
    ... so what happens?
    do we make a number of blocks to trade out to the others? and what about colours? etc. etc.

    CarrieM? ... looks like DublB is telling me you are the Mistress of Coordination on this?

    LOL Great minds do think alike.
    I've been lookin' for months for the perfect fabric & hope that I will git this in soon. I seems that Red w/stars & a machin' cream w/stars isn't as easy ta find as I thought it would be. Oh, I could find some but it didn't match & then there wasn't enough. Thanks for lettin' me vent.
    It's so neat that your Aunt will let ya help.
    Your day wasn't wasted, Ya got ta spend the time tagether & got ta spend time w BIL's cousins. It came out good.

    QE--I have been trying to send reminders...hoped you would catch one of them as I thought you might be interested:

    (from last week)
    I just wanted to post a quick reminder (which I will try to remember to do every couple of weeks) about the "PC Bonus Blocks". I have seen some of you say on the boards that you want to join us. That would be great! Please be sure to send me a private message with your name/email address so I can send out an email to everyone all at once with my mailing info and details for the "swap".

    Here are the basics I posted a couple weeks ago with numbers updated:

    We are making 8" blocks.

    Not sure yet how many...I will send a final count hopefully by mid-November as we are finishing up the regular PC blocks. My guess is we will need between 10 and 12. (I have heard from 8, 9 counting me so far with info.)

    What block design and fabrics is up to you. If you want to do something that will remind us of your location, of you, or of our PC "ride" that would be great. If you want to make all your blocks the same that is fine or if you want to make certain blocks for certain people, that is good too...just be sure to label individual blocks.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    carrie

    Well it is official, we are up to 10 people signed up for the bonus blocks...YAY! I can't decide what fabrics for sure...I've looked at the novelties some, but want to choose my KT fabric first and then match colors from that.

    Sew many fabrics ... Sew many choices!

    And now the rest of you are saying ... what "QuiltE"?
    She hasn't been around these parts lately and now she's going to do ten more blocks?
    Yup ... I'll be sure to play along on this one!

    This is going to be a fun addition!

    Last two ... and you're done? WOW!!!!!!!!!!!
    I can't wait to see your beauty.

    And then there's us slowpoke cowpokes, pullin' up the rear!

    Thanks MiraB ... I'm excited to be in on the exchange!
    So what's the plan? ... are you ladies going to include the swap blocks in your quilt? or do something else with them?


    DublB ... You bit' it's going to be fun and I've missed so much of the fun you've all been having!

    QuiltE, we are going to finish the PC run first by December, then do the extended block exchange in January, according to what Honchey has suggested, giving every one a chance to get caught up that's in the virtual RV now...and needs time to sew up a few blocks.

    Decision, decision, decision of what to do in the way of an extended block to each of us, do we want to represent our country, part of USA state we reside in, or a pony club block or one we have used in our quilts...???
