    QE--very nice fussy cutting on these blocks. I think we have that animal fabric at the shop where I work...looks very familiar.

    I may be a little daft ... but I'll fess up that I don't "get it" re the Western Star?
    Here's hoping you come home with some good scores at the estate sale!




    CarrieM ... it's a fun fabric and so cheery with the blue. I seem to recall there was 3 or 4 in the line of that fabric when I bought it.


    I just love that Stonehenge fabric ... dark red mottle with chunks of bling in it. I've bought it more than once as it just adds some interest with the gold nuggets!!

    I see that fussy cut center as people riding off into the sunset. Closing of the day (quilt)

    QuiltE...good finish at least by the book! I'm doing mine as a 9x9 and it seems to be plenty big.

    duhhhh ... now I get it! Sometimes I need a bolt of lightening just to get things!


    GGal ... 9x9 wouldn't leave me any border space for the double. 6 blocks on the top of the bed with one on each side for 8, then borders. I think the 9 long will work good, for a bit of a tuck around the pillows at the top yet not so huge if using to sleep with.

    Honchey .......... weeeeee! you're baaaaaaaaaack! I was about ready to send out a search party!
    The turquoise and red with bling in the WS are both Stonehenge. YMF was scraps from previous projects, with a print bought because of all those little animals. And to think that's the first I used them!

    THANKS EVERYONE! for the kind words!

    Yeeehawwwww!!!! my PC blocks are finished, and what better thread to include these final two additions to the blocks ....

    Reference Library ... to showcase all 148 fabrics used in the quilt (4 blocks are HSTs otherwise all postage stamps) I even managed some FC work in those mini stamps!!
    The Farmer's Wife and Her Farmer ... just had to be included in the quilt!

    And now onwards to adding the sashings and cornerstones and then the tough part of placement decisions!!!

    A very nice finish to your pc blocks...love how you put the 'couple' together the Amish way with no faces. yes, i think you take the prize for the most blocks within a block of any pc er with your postage stamp block...great job.

    Thanks QNSue!
    I did the same with my FWS, though did one inch postage stamps and set the four blocks into the corners. This time, only one block to deal with ... and dear knows where it will land!

    And thank you TOO for your contribution to the creation of the FW block ... and many others!

    Oh what cute farmer and his wife! How special your quilt is going to be, so anxious to see all of the blocks together! That is going to be one huge quilt!

    Too cute, QE. You have been working so hard and deserve a loud "Yipee!!" Love your creativity with those blocks. I'm with Jeanie--can't wait to see it all together (not nagging!)

    That's 148 fabrics, QE! You could've done a better job of fussy cutting
    Farmer's Wife has an apron--right on! And denim blue for Farmer John!
    Both great additions.

    Thanks Everyone, for your many kind words!
    And a SPECIAL THANK YOU too, to QNSue, for sharing The Farmer patterns, and many of tge extras in my barnyard!

    JeanieG ... not really that big as I'll only have a 8x9 layout ... plus some spares. So will have to do something with them later!

    CarrieM ... yes, each stamp is about 2/3" finished. Thank heavens for PPing which makes it not quite so tedious and helped keep it somewhat straight as I worked.

    JanRN ... Nag Nag Nag ........ kidding!! I can't wait to see it all together too!

    OKSGlad ... the FW and her DH are just a tad too coordinated for "real" farmers, don't you think? And note the suspenders for the Farmer!

    DublB ... see above ... PPing is the saving grace.

    Thank you for your kind words about my block GrannyQ!

    Yours are outstanding .......... and even more so when I see the final group shot. Your attic window sashings really do have the 3-D effect and will show even more so once all is quilted. Amazing!

    I so agree with your GrannyQ ... my best quilting buddies, are right here in these PC and FWS threads!
    I have so many memories tied up in the FWS and PC quilts, and soon to be the PCBB (next in line) ... and the 2013 MB WIP!!

    I totally agree Jeanie. The dual colors in the sashing balances the dual colors used throughout the blocks. You are extremely talented GrannyQ to foresee this fantastic result.

    Ditto, I cast my votes the same way. Wonderful dual colored quilt. A job well done, GrannyQ.
