Oh JanRN ... of course our City Cousin can stay here with the Country Bumpkins! There's lots doing non-PC themed quilts ... and you know it! Mine won't be staying strictly pony, and will be a rural/nature sort of mix. In a lot of ways, I'd sooner not be doing that ... I'm looking at this as my way to get better at FCing, and work with novelties. Something I've never done. So it's a change for me ... though I see so many possibilities for a more classic look. In other words, I'm kind of "forcing" myself to do it this way, recognizing the "learn to do by doing" (translation for the City Cousin: 4-H Motto) will do me good for the long term.

You're doing great ...... and don't you even think another moment about skipping out on us.

New post ... different subject!
OK all you
Smarty-Cats ....

If you saw a workshop called "Basic Net Collage" offered, what would you think that might mean?
(being offered as both a one day course as well as a two day course; each day 6 hours)

Because I have just been on a thread about Art Quilting, I would say it was using bridal net atop a collage of fabric pieces and secured with stitching whether by hand or machine. Just a guess.

JanR...don't you even think of leaving us. Mine is a purely scrappy quilt which I'm doing for the enjoyment of working with this wonderful group of women. You have permission to hollar at us if we get too far out in the back 40 and we welcome any stories that you have to share. All of our lives are as unique as the blocks we make and together we'll have a lot of fun. You've already seen that some have substituted blocks that we didn't like. You can do that too. Just be comfortable and enjoy yourself.

QuiltE...first thing I thought of was something to do with the Internet. Probably all wrong.

Thanks! I really enjoy this group and I've learned so much. (Maybe a little too much about Road Apples LOL).

QE: I think OKsewglad is right. Art quilting with lots of little bits of fabric covered by netting and stitched down. Are you thinking of another project???? I'm jealous of all your energy!

Jan, you are NOT going anywhere! You are with us for the long haul! This is a hobby, right, so do what will make you happy. The fabric choices are just that - choices. Everyone is doing what they want with that. I have no clue who will get this quilt when I'm finished. I have some grandsons that might like it???? I might even make it into two lap quilts like I did the FWS quilt. I do know that I'm going to piece all the extra pony fabric on the back of the quilt(s) when I'm done. Don't know what I would do with it otherwise.

I would say use of netting to make a collage??? Maybe 3 dimensional?

Jan, Please make your blocks any way you like 'em. You don't need to make 'em 'pony.' Mine certainly aren't. We enjoy looking at your blocks. We like everything you have brought to the table. I don't think that anyone is offended about you not making these blocks, I think we just like & will miss your contributions. If the pace is hard (sometimes it is hard ta git all of these done on time!) just slow down, but please don't leave us! We need you. {Huggs}

OOPS ... I should have said it had something to do with quilting!
I take very few courses/classes as I find so many of them are nothing "new" to learn.
So I saw this one and thought, maybe I might?
For me, it's about technique exposure.
If I like it great. If I don't, at least I have a bit of a concept what it's about.
At this point, I have no idea the cost.
I did send an email asking for more info, so I'll let y'all know more when I know too.


JanRN ... are we going to have to use our lassos on you?
As for "all my energy" ... not so ... remember I don't have all the extra people and animals in my life, so have a little more time on my hands than most of the rest of you.
