    Great job and great story QNS. Only other one I can come up with is "Ewe's not fat, ewe's fluffy"!

    How about, "Don't fence me in!".. "I'll jump over or climb under... or through the middle" attitude of an old ewe...I once owned.

    QNSue...you really got going this week didn't you. Your blocks always have a story to tell. I'll bet you were a favorite teacher. (I think I remember you said you taught). Here are my blocks for the week.Name:  Week 40.JPG

    Love that combo, GG! Hope you are feeling better and I hope the vick's worked for you to stop your coughing. I was a middle school librarian for 37 years, so I taught administrators, teachers and students and parents what a librarian does and does not do. I even was known to prepare a meal for the entire staff for Thanksgiving!! Loved the junior high kids and their parents!! Miss them. Guess they trained me well.

    I'm smiling as I type here ... what a contrast in the two pairs of blocks!!
    And I love them both!!

    QNSue ... I'm still going to nudge you that these stories need to be penned for your DGS! I couldn't help but smile with the sheep jumping around. Typical springy-legged woolly lambs! What FC and matching you did to get those fence rails lining up!

    GGal ... Such a romantic look to those two! And Great FC to you too, for those centre flowers!

    Oh QE so great to have you back with your commentary. And ITA on your blocks assessments! I know it's been said before but one of the great things about this show n tell is how different blocks can look. So for another look here's mine. Yes I did 6 blocks over the weekend!!Name:  PC 79 Sheep Fold.jpg

    Thanks OKSGlad ... though I wish I was back in the Saddle and riding WITH all of you instead of tossing in my two cents worth!!

    You've taken the look to a totally different dimension. Always like your folky blocks. No cow? And the 2nd one has my attention two. Perfect fabric choices for both, and especially the 2nd. They blend so well together, the fabric pattern size fits the parts so well with a wonderful zap in the blue contrast.

    You're welcome QE. I opted for the sheep as it was obvious in the name. As this is from the same fabric thought it would blend in nicely and did you see the two cows peeking wishing they were front and center, and the B&W one walking off in a huff. Chanticleer is crowing!

    Fun blocks everyone. I had to redo Star of Hope a couple of times and it still looks like my small triangles are on wrong. Oh well, it is what it is!Name:  Sheep Fold & Star of Hope.jpg

    Ggal--pretty blocks. I love the sunflowers in the star of hope block...I've always liked sunflowers and butterflies, but haven't used either in a quilt yet.

    OK--I see KT fabrics! Both blocks turned out great!

    Jan--Your quilting finishes the blocks off so nicely...good fabric choices too!

    ***jumps in and steals Honcheys block**

    With this yellow, it looks as though this block should be in my PC!
    Great FC on that cowboy and such a nice contrast.

    PS ... are you sayin' I am stirrin' the proverbial pot?

    Thanks everyone for the compliments. I still don't quite get the hang of FMQ---I still have to draw lines and "aim" my quilting at them. Anne, I'm in agreement; I would make blocks and quilt tops all day long--hate to quilt them. I'm liking it now with the Sweet 16. I just need LOTS of practice. I love your block. It's so cheerful and perfectly done.

    Honchey ....... hahahaha!!!!

    JanRN ... if that's what you can do with very little practice, then OMG, you're going to be phenomenal with practice! There's nothing wrong with tracing your design on to follow!

    Oh great blocks everyone. That quilting is just getting better and better Jan! Your quilt is going to be wonderful, as is everyones! I'm anxious to get home so I can work on my blocks and get caught up. It will be Friday or Saturday, depending on the weather. Lots of rain in the forecast here.

    Oksewglad...your fabric choices for both blocks really compliment one another. Glad you had some time in the sewing room between milking and running errands.
    JanR....you've also captured a nice feeling with your fabric choices but you really sealed the deal with your quilting. I'm with Honchey, much rather cut and piece.
    Honchey, your block literally comes to life with that bucking bronco. Perfect fussy cutting. I do like the quilt that you're donating. I too think that you'll get lots if tickets.

    Wow what beautiful blocks this week. I spent one day last week sewing blocks into rows and trying to make sense of the fabric I have left. Thought I had been very productive ha ha, I only managed to get one block made.
    So tomorrow I plan on getting the other block made for this week
    It is wonderful to read the chatter and feel everyones enthusiasm for each other
