    The FWS Pony Club Quilt-Along wk 41 Floral Bouquet & Seminole Square Photo Page

    Hi Everyone, I should have Floral Bouquet done in about 1/2 hour...I've been sewing it watching the Presidental Debate tonight. I would have gotten it done yesterday at work but I played instead with some mindless sewing of postage stamps...I'm sure...no, I know someone will post a photo soon...

    Isn't it fun to mindlessly sew and see what you can make of it? No blocks for me as I choose not to do these two.

    I don't even want to think about that nasty woman...every time I wanted to speak she started yelling more...I had to walk away from her....On to better things... Here is my block...the middle really is nice & flat I didn't remove the paper under that area..

    When I worked at the Elementary School, this parent came in yelling at me about something a teacher had done. I calmly looked him in the eye and said "You have no right to yell at me about this, it is not my fault!" He backed right down. I don't know how that came out of my mouth!!!!

    Great block Anne - I've finished this one, and it went together easier than I thought. Now onto the next one....it is rather intimidating!

    I managed to finish these this morning, did not have fun with one of them, I was short of fabric and had to piece two pieces together to get the unit I wanted. I just had my DD look at it and she couldn't pick the join so heres hoping no one else can.
    Psst I won't be offended if anyone can see my fault

    Honchey your block is beautiful as always

    In every crowd but this one is a horse's rear end, certainly in the bunkhouse. Did two Floral blocks trying to figure out the templates...

    Wow, great blocks everyone!! I am so impressed that yinz are doing these. I think the rest of my blocks are subs--wonder "y"???? I did the frog for Mirab and tulips for Anael so here's the Maple Leaf for QE. I made the second block because when I had my blocks spread out I needed another block that read "roundish".Name:  Sub & Sub.jpg

    I have no idea why they posted twice. Honest there's only one of each block.

    Everyone has some great blocks this week.

    Honchey--pretty flowers

    Mirabelle--I don't see any extra seams. Nice to see someone did SS....I opted to skip it since I don't need all the blocks.

    QNS--you have a great variety of fabrics and lots of fun fussy cutting.

    Jan--your blocks look so crisp with the white background.

    I did just FB...

    Some beautiful Floral Bouquets to start the day on this dreary and rainy autumn morn!

    Honchey ... Fresh as spring!

    MiraB ... extra seam I do not see ... besides when I need to do that, I remind myself, that's the true essence of patchwork in the past! Plus any extra seaming soon disappears with quilting! As always, *sigh* for your beautiful fabric!

    QNSue ... Double Bouquets for our overachiever! I like that autumn touch with our Canada Geese a swimming!!!

    JanRN ... awwww thanks for my Maple Leaf!! This is so sweet of all of you! and here I thought you were trying to double up, following on QNSue's work ! The bright whites will be nice contrast within your quilt. Nice "roundish" block for your sub. Is that a free online pattern? It fits well with the quilt ... and there could be some mighty-nice FC in the centre too!

    CarrieM ... From Jan's white to your dark ... lovely too!

    I was later than usual...the debate got me all fired up and I was too angry to type...I found myself pounding the keyboard and making mistakes...it took me awhile to calm down...
    Great blocks everyone and QNS you made more than one!!! Mirabelle ..it took me awhile but my lips are buttoned...Jan, I'm so jealous you have the quilting done..Can't wait to see your blocks JeanieG....just saw your FB Carriem...I love the way the dots bring it all together.

    Que, Sera, Sera: what ever will be, will be, the future is not ours to see. We are blessed with a new day every morning, with new hope, and fresh outlook on our day but thoughts can stray to the problems arising...just look for solutions to the problems, concentrate on the bright spots and enjoy the moments. There will always be 'one' who wants to 'rain' on our parade, but we cannot let it happen, kill them with kindness... That always stops them in mid stride.

    "There is a silver lining to every cloud," grandma said. Sometimes, I look at that person sounding off, and think, oh, I am so happy I do not have to walk in your shoes!! Jack Benny said once, "I will not judge him, until I have walked a mile in his shoes!"

    May (you make) your day be a great day, everyone!!

    Fantastic blocks ladies!! Just repeat everything that was said. Each block is so special in it's own way.
    Looks like a cold windy day is headed our way, but with a song in my heart I'm off to wash dining room windows and they pay a few bills. Thanks QNS!!!

    Oh my goodness, such a busy thread already! I think we chat more and more every week. What fun to read all these comments this morning. I'm going to miss all this when we are done with this project!

    Wow - great blocks everyone. I have finished Floral Bouquet, and almost done with Seminole. I'll post a little later today.

    I'm off to have lunch with my Retiree Group. The people I worked with at the School District that have retired (I retired 9 years ago) all meet for lunch once a month. What fun to stay in touch with them!

    We have some brave, dedicated quilters in this group. I whimped out and did a couple of subs. The first is called California and the second is Missouri Star. I got them from quilters cache and had a little struggle getting the size of the first one correct but frames work, huh?
    Honchey...your fabrics work so well together and your bouquet could be a center piece on anyone's table. I started listening to the debate but after the first question that wasn't answered, I turned to something else.
    Mirabelle...I've looked as close as I can and there is no extra piecing to be seen. Your blocks are beautiful.
    QNSue...you are a brave one to do 2 FB. Both are so different and then your horse's behind in the bunkhouse...whew!!!
    JanR...what nice blocks and I too like how you quilted them. How is your new toy doing?
    Carrie...your FB shows off nicely. Love the colors.
    I declare, QNSue, you do have a book in you. Thanks for sharing. And it looks like you got the FB templates figured out.
    OKSewGlad...I hope the song keeps singing. You have some rather unfun tasks today...unless you're someone that actually enjoys washing windows.
    Jeanie...we'll just have to figure out someway to continue. Friends, old or new, are worth the effort it takes.

    Lovely blocks GG. Love your colors and choice of blocks to 'fit' in with the others. OksewGlad posted the 8 inch Missouri Star last week, and I downloaded it to possibly use at a later time. Loved the way you did yours.

    There is an error in both Floral bouquets; turned out to be the same in both, less noticeable in the cowboy rodeo one. Easy compared with Verna's favorite block....I finally figured out it was a 'pizza' sliced square, then it was easier. Guess I should have used what I would put into a home made pizza!!

    Nice, Jeanie, that you can go meet up with other retired teachers that you know and still get along with so well. I was just so happy to say 'Good-Bye' to staff and move out of state by 1500 miles...back into the mid west where we can garden and raise our own poultry. Gloomy day, yet I count my blessings and have a song in my heart...everyone is so active on PC QB board and I love reading all the latest postings.

    QNS - Sorry to say I was not a teacher - they made much more money than I did! I worked in the District Office in Budgeting/Accounting and I was in charge of all the Attendance for our District. I worked as a Principal's Secretary for five years prior to moving up to the District Office. I loved my job and made great friends. We only had four for lunch today, as several are traveling. Often we have 8 to 10 people.

    As usual all your blocks are beautiful, sorry I haven't been able to work on mine lately, I am really behind it has been a busy summer, But I am going to finish my blocks just won't be on time with all of you. I still look at yours each week. I made pillows(embroidered) for my church, made some rag quilts for 5 nieces and nephews, made covers for our new chairs, made some purses for some friends and a couple of lap quilts for friends, and some walker bags too. I really need to get started back. Keep up the good work. Hope to catch up soon.
