    FWS Pony Club QUILT Wk 4 Blocks "Basket of Flowers & Betty's Delight" DISCUSSION Pg

    Hello Ladies --
    I'm starting this week's FWS Pony Club threads on behalf of Honchey.
    Some of you will have already seen her post on the general thread, started before the Quilt-Along began.

    I tried to keep to the same format for the Titles of both threads for continuity.
    However, I did need to alter them some, as there were just too many characters to fit into the allotted space.

    So Ladies ... start chatting it up!!!!!!!!!!



    P.S. ... I miss you Honchey!

    I'm curious ... has anyone decided on their sashing yet???

    Yes, me who has one block done, was very tempted today to purchase some sashing material.
    I was good ... and resisted!

    On the upside, I only have one more FWS block to do, officially (to complete all 111).
    Unofficially .. I have four ... another #68 postage stamp, a 4-H and Log Cabin blocks.

    And y'all know what that means for the PC ....... I'm hoping to be .........

    I've decided on my sashing and border fabric, just have to order it. It will be the same fabric range that I am using, so hope it works when I have all the blocks finished (otherwise oops!!!!)

    JeanieG .... oh no ... First I will work hard to do the catching up. AFter that my plans are not to move ahead of the posse, just stick with the group. There are so many other projects that I want to do ... including a plethora of those UFOs! I will confess I have stuck with the FWS pretty heavy duty, but that was mainly so I could be done it, before getting into the PC. Otherwise, no PC!! I just couldn't fathom a project so large as a UFO!!!


    MiraBelle ... yea for you for making the decision. Once you get your sashing, then you'll know what you are working towards, and can somewhat decide on your block fabric placements to enhance the sashings. You have such a lovely group of fabrics ... it'll be nice to see what you have chosen. A blue? or?


    I was thinking yesterday that "if" I chose the sashing, then I'd do that with my PC blocks. Two things stopped me in my tracks ... the question of why was I worrying about PC sashing, when I was not done FWS. And secondly, to atleast wait to make my decision til atleast a few were done and not just one!

    On the FWS front ... getting close to the finish line made me nervous about my sashing and borders. I had enough of the green for the sashing, and definitely not enough for the borders and binding. I didn't want to take the risk of doing my sashing and not finding anything I'd be happy with for the borders, so knew I had to deal with that before I could start the sashing, which will be very soon. I was willing to look for just new border fabric .... but yesterday found the perfect replacement. No, not the same, but close enough that I know it will work. My LQS is calling her supplier today, to find out if she can get it for me ... or to tell her where I could buy it!! Yeaaaa ... moving ahead on that too!

    I'm loving everyone's blocks. I do want to apologize for not being able to comment too often. Running around, taking care of mom, and today it's off to work. Please know I check out your pics and ooh and aah (and get funny looks from DH) but haven't had time to post. Keep up the great work. This thread is such a nice distraction from my "real life" LOL.

    Mine will come later. I decided I wanted to see what others were doing before I did mine...and I'm totally immersed in a quilt for my granddaughter which I'm doing for Marti & Me Club. Today I hope to get it sandwiched and off my design wall. Then PC blocks before the week is over.

    Anael ..... droooooooool! Beautiful, particularly the basket ... for some reason, I can see that one as a repeating one block quilt!

    JanRN ... you impress me, that despite your hectic pace that you're finding time for yourself for some ooh and aaaah breaks. And making sure that you take time to sew too. Important!!! as that will help you keep your own batteries charged thru all this busy-ness! Keep taking care of you ... and you'll do a better job of taking care of the world.

    GGal ... And .... we're all awaiting to see what the immersion is all about! There's an LQS here that runs the Marti + Me Clubs. Actually their whole store seems to be a Marti shrine!!! I haven't gotten involved, as the store is over an hour drive, and for short get togethers, it's just not worth my drive to haul everything around. I look at it as "if" I spent the driving time alone, I'm better to stay at home. To say the least about gas $ saved for fabric!!

    I have no ideal what I am going to do with these blocks once I finish....I don't have anyone that will care one hoot! I just think the blocks are fun to do and I love the stories the kids have written about their ponies. I will watch what you all are doing pertaining to sashing and maybe get an idea.......I love what all of you are doing so far. Great eye candy!!!

    Sashing? Ack. I have no idea. As I am trying to use my stash, the quilt is going to be a dog's breakfast so I'm thinking I will need something dark and neutral (read boring) to try not to compete with the variety in the blocks.

    Anael,
    glad I wandered into this thread so I could see your blocks. I absolutely love that basket! Betty's Delight is delightful. Good on ya.

    That's part of why I hesitated on the Pony Club Quilt ... I had no past connections to ponies, and no kids/grands as a destination. Then I decided, I just wanted to be part of all the campfire chats, cookhouse discussions ... and camaraderie along the trails of this great posse!

    The foundation fabric I picked while still fun and kid-like, is a little more softer and feminine, in a sense. And with it's colour, it just might be a sunny bright quilt for me to enjoy all-by-myself!!!!!!!!!!

    It'll all figure itself out, as time goes on!!

    Hey ya'll-
    I haven't figured out the sashing yet but I just ordered the backing & already have half of the binding. I plan on doing the flange binding that Charismah has a tutorial on. I tried it on my 6 hour quilt, that took 2 weeks, & loved it! Here's the link to my quilt.

    Thanks ladies

    I have 3 kids who don't care but I like the blocks and I love quitling so that's why I'm making this. I guess it will end up in my basket in my living room waiting for somebody to be cold and use it. That's ok with me.

    Talk about planning ahead and organized DublB ... WOW!
    I did a flange on my OBW, though not quite the way that Charisma's tute shows.

    And OMG ... I didn't realize I had gotten THAT carried away on pics at the time!
    A little overkill, for sure! Sorry!

    First; I love all of the picts! Not overkill at all! It's a beautiful quilt!
    Second; that is a neat way to bind a quilt. I love that lace! Lovely!
    Third; I still am looking for the perfect sashing! I have money now but I'm afraid that I won't later. I don't want this to be a UFO!(I only finished 1 quilt last year!)
    PS. I'm also thinking of doing this as a QAYG, but time will tell!

    More than orgnaized ... good thinking and strategy!!

    Thank you ... I was quite pleased. I really wasn't sure what or how I was doing the lace at first. It was just an idea I wanted to try. When I was looking for the lace and asking for help locally, I just got shrugs ... and looks kind of as though I were a strange green alien! Thankfully there was good support here on the Boards which kept me encouraged that yes, I could do something different than the norm!

    And you hadn't seen it before? I'm quite pleased with it. The funny thing is, that it's so not me! Pretty much everything I make is loud, bright, colourful ... this is so fluffy fluffy frou frou that most who know me find it hard to believe I made it

    Yet, I like it! .......... I have three quilting goals this year to get out of my comfort zone ...
    1. something subdued, soft and calm
    2. a matchy matchy quilt
    3. and working with a coordinated collection of fabrics.
    Who knows, maybe I'll kill all three birds in one quilt?

    Love your quilt QuiltE, I have decided on blue for my sashing and just have to pick between a large floral or a floral border print for my final border on the PC quilt.

    I was going to do it in red but I have already chosen a red floral print as the final border on my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler, 130 x 6 inch blocks, I've only finished 2 but that's a start. I might try and get organised a do a few each week with my Pony Club blocks

    Just so busy at the moment, stop the merry go round I want to get off (just to stretch my legs)

    MiraBelle ... WOW!! starting SBS at the same time as PC!
    Looks like the colours are similar ... are the fabrics similar too? or a total different look to them?



    I can't believe so many of you are already thinking of the sashing, borders etc.
    When I mentioned it, I was more joking than serious ... and here you are making those decisions already!
