    Notice the corner blocks on the BF--I like to go to the scrap box before cutting into a big hunk of fabric. I made my HST's, then went to cut my squares. I was 1-1 1/2" block short from the only scrap I had, so I made lemonade and found a close relative. Such is life.

    Nothing wrong with that ... totally looks as though it was meant to be in the master plan!
    Did you manage to save your memory block from the fabric? Though knowing you, it won't be postage stamps but teeny-weeny HST's!

    Really like your blocks, oksewglad.

    The cowboy boots and horses are from fabric that I received in the mail from my best friend, so felt it appropriate to use it this week. Thanks, Bev!

    OMG JanieW ... look at all those fussy cut giddy-ups! A perfect blend with that beige fabric.
    And great cowboy boots .... looks like there's some turquoise boots coming in a future block!

    How nice of your Best of All Best Friend to have a place in these two blocks ... hope you sent her a picture?
    Hey ......... maybe you could lasso her in and get her to saddle up with this motley crew for some good ol' cowboy fun?

    Beautiful blocks-as usual-you guys. Love the fabric in both. Here are mine. I know I lopped off a couple of points in Best of All but my blocks are square. In the pic they look crooked-sort of "fish eye" effect from camera. Thanks for all the inspiration!

    Oh JanRN ... great colours in both those blocks. Nice and bright and cheery.
    The brown and orange set off those geese pretty nice and help make them pop their beaks right out at us.
    Well done!!!!!!!!
    I wonder where you got that fabric? *giggles*

    Janie--the horse heads fit perfectly in those tiny squares! The red plaid complements the boots too.
    Jan--I noticed the geese block first; color placement in the "bear paw" corners remind me of geese feet.
    Great job, you two.

    Oh what fun to see all the beautiful blocks for this week. You guys outdid yourselves that is for sure. I got Best of All cut out, and am working on Best Friend. Even had to run to JoAnns today to get some charcoal grey fabric for Best of All.

    I can't figure out how to do that either.... I'm not scanning just using the camera cause when the cp went the wireless went with it and I tried to restore and that didn't work because I had to download drivers....what a mess. I'm just so glad to be able to communicate!!!

    JanieW I like your choice in fabric. It must have taken you a long time to put these blocks together. I love your fancy cut and your placement of fabric.

    JanRN As usual your blocks are a reflection of perfection and your color choices are vibrant and sooo pleasing to the eye. Love the geese.

    Mirabelle I love everything you post. Love the fabric and the roses.

    Honchey -The horses you choose to place on your block are the best. It always reminds me of the gift that horses give to us by just being.
