    It's funny, when I begin to talk about the PC riders and come to the part that you are my friends but I've never met you, I kind of get a blank stare. For instance, when I talked about my friend in New Jersey that lives near Pleasant Point Beach where the hurricane hit or friends in California and Australia that do Bonnie Hunter quilts...I could go on for each one of you...they are amazed. I guess this group is sort of like having pen pals and we can read each others mail every day! I love it.

    JanRN ... there's nothing wrong with being anal when quilting. That produces excellence!
    I *S*M*I*L*E* everytime I see you celebrating your new PPing skill. I am SO happy for you!!

    MiraB ... whaaaaaaaat? you think we're not from outerspace?


    I haven't gone to far at talking about my virtual quilting buddies as when I mention it I get this "look" that all of "yinz" are going to come from outerspace and eat me alive and and and .......!!!!! Amyone relate?

    I don't protest with explanations, as when they really don't want to know (and have their minds made up!), they will never truly understand how I have been blessed by all of you, the friendships we have made and all that we have each gained along this quilting trail. Their loss!

    I don't have any IRL quilting friends ... yes, I have friends that quilt, though none that I meet and sew with or do any quilt planning with. Honestly, sometimes I feel closer to you ladies, my PC/FWS and some other QB friends than any IRL quilting friends.

    Truly, I am blessed!

    Absolutely, GGal ... I told many about being worried for my NJ friend as we had not heard from her.

    Or how about when we tell someone about a technique or tip or trick we learned from our online friends.
    Or when I ask at a LQS for a specific notion and of course, they do not have it. (So often USA has things long before we get them here in Canada.)

    I know my two LQS' have not been overly supportive ... so I try not to mention it now.
    Jealous of business lost (courses, LAQ etc.), I'd say.
    Instead, they should be looking at it that if I do more sewing, there's more business there for them with my needing more fabric and supplies.

    I hereby nominate Honchey as the Queen of Fussy Cutting!

    Many times, Honchey you have shown us extreme FC work, and this is no different ... what a way to end up the blocks with another amazing one.

    Very nice block, Honchey; love your colors.

    Yes, the RR accident was terrible news. Prayers for everyone there who feels the pain and loss.

    Yay, Jeanie!! Love those blocks. Doesn't it feel good to mark something finished? Now, to put them all together; can't wait to see it.

    Great fussy cutting on your blocks QuiltE! You are really "spitting" these blocks out! Great Work!

    Love them--you are really capturing the spirit of the Pony quilt. Great color combos and fussy cutting. How many more blocks are you making? You are really galloping along!!

    JeanieG ... spitting the dust out from you cowpokes further along the trail! and that I missed out on the REAL fun of doing them WITH everyone like I had planned and so much wanted to do after doing the FWS pretty much on my own. That being said, it's been the BEST experience EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    EVERYONE ... Please read above!!!!! It's meant for all of you!

    JanRN ... I don't know! Partly because I'm not sure what size it will be, and partly that I really don't know how many are on the wall! I decided to not do the full size PC, as I just don't want or need another humongous quilt, being that I only have a double bed and likewise the guest bed. First I was only going to do 7x7, as a generous lap size, small bed and was feeling pretty good, as at that point, I was at 45/49!! Then reality and practicality set in and I thought it'd be better to be a proper bed size. So for sure 8x8, maybe 8x9. So I'll have another 15-20 to go ......... will do an official count today, and report back on the general thread, OK?

    As you will have noticed, I haven't been putting the sashings on since I got back on the trail, so I can gallop ahead. Then will have to back track and catch up on the sashings. The good news is that I won't have them all to do!
