Scarlet and black was the HS colors, and was the color of every school I worked for except one. So scarlet and black flys high today...everyone be on your guard because the game is very hard...fight, fight, fight. Charge!!! So come on, gals show your blocks...

    Honchey ... so good of you to stick with us, despite your sorrows. I hope that we can give you some Good Cheer and a Favourite or two!

    QNSue ... I was thinking that your Good Cheer looked like stained glass! It's a beauty. *chuckle* the source of her problems! Gee, your schools sure didn't have much variety or originality in colours! Great colour choices for both.

    What a great start, QNS! You keep that quilting bar so high for us. Maybe if it rains I can get to the sewing room this week.

    Love your "rose" theme, mirabelle. Keeps me looking at the site with rose colored glasses. Beautiful.

    QNSue...I too thought the Good Cheer looked like stained glass. Really pretty. And you still found a little girl to fussy cut for Girls' Favorite. I think you have fun figuring out just how to keep those little faces or horses showing up.

    Mirabelle...I have my pages set so the page I first see is the last one anyone posts on. I always just go to where I have last read and scroll up. As i was scrolling up, I knew before I saw your name that I was looking at your blocks. They are always so distinctive both with color choices and workmanship. Just beautiful.

    I'll post my pictures in a few minutes. I have to fire up my laptop to upload them and I'm still enjoying my morning coffee.

    I did get mine done for this week. I made subs for last week, but certainly enjoyed seeing what y'all posted.
    GNS, Mirabelle, and GG970.....I like all I see......GNS, I love your description of your blocks.....I, too, put a man in the center of my Girl's Favorite.......just seemed appropriate for my mood at the time. My Good Cheer is just fabric I had while waiting for some horse fabric I had ordered......

    Gardengal and wendiq, great blocks. Love your colors in your blocks. And your points are wonderful, unlike mine, but I am going to live with mine 'cause dgs will like it anyhow...dd too.

    Great blocks again everybody. I marvel each week at the variety and how different we can make the same block look.

    Another great Wednesday--my favorite day of the week.

    QNS, your blocks are so cheery and bright-they always make me smile (like you!).

    Mirabelle, I always get a sense of peace and calm when I look at your beautiful blocks. I like how you've kept your background constant and wish I'd have done that.

    Wendiq, I love the shades of green you used, very fresh and show off your beautiful piecing.

    JanieW, beautiful work. I love the Good Cheer, nice bright Christmasy colors and that cowboy kitty is too cute.

    You ladies never cease to amaze me with your choice of colors and your workmanship (workwomanship?).

    Beautiful blocks everyone. Mine are cut out, but will have to wait till we get home tomorrow before I can get to work on them! It is so fun to see what everyone does with the blocks. Such great variation!

    I thought these were a little easier than usual, lots of pieces but went together without a lot of problems.

    I almost forgot it was Wed. I do have this weeks blocks cut out, along with several that I'm behind on. I've been side railed again. Puttin' tile in the Kitchen. (Actually we are still pullin' the old stuff up.)
    Ya'll have the most beautiful blocks! I love seein' 'em. Each is unique in it's own way.

    OKSGlad ... I'll hope for rain for you ... to be able to sew and to help the hay and crops grow!

    MiraB ... Beautiful and perfect, as always!! And such a different look with the red/white and the softness of the green, both with the different but similar dark blue mult-prints.

    GGal ... Love the contrasts of those two ... soft and subtle for the one, and thje brighter pink with the subdued print. Perfect and pointy!

    WendiQ .. look at all your FC work! Well done! and some bandana fabric in the next one. A nice mix of fabrics for sure!

    JanieW ... Now there's a beautiful Christmas block and then a fun kitty playing in the spring. You're right into this PC spirit!

    DDamsel ... All your blocks are so soft and delicate. And so well put together. I forget ... are you hand piecing? or did I dream that?

    JanRN ... ooohhh ... these look like they were picked right out of QNSue's gardens! You've been usg quite a few florals and some lovely blenders to contrast with them. And look at how square and pointy you've got them! Wouldn't that make for an interesting quilt? .... all florals, just as GrannyQ and DDamsel are doing all blues.

    This is a long weekend coming up for us ... Victoria Day to celebrate the Queen's birthday. I'm looking forward to the bonus day off ... and can you guess what my plans are??

    Am I still making sense? .,... I was bound I was catching up on threads before hitting the proverbial haystack!
    Good Night Ladies!!

    Wendig...I really like your blocks. Great color combos in both.

    JanieW...such a cute kitty and the other block really pops with the contrasting color. Good work.

    DDamsel...you and the barbed wire....again you got them all going the right direction. Very nice!

    JanRN...I love your fabric choices for these blocks. I'm glad you had time to enjoy making them with us. I too found that they weren't difficult to put together.

    QuiltE...how many UFO's do you plan to have done for the LQS challenge? Nice that you can count the FWQ as one of them. Enjoy your day off.

    Janie W....that kittie is just too cute......a cowboy kittie.....where did you ever find such darling fabric?!

    DD.....your stripes are perfect....you are one brave lady!

    JanRN.....Always nice blocks.....I found this fairly easy, too.....lots of pieces and time consuming, but easy.....I listen to books while I sew, so easy and uncomplicated suits me just fine....

    Honchey.....hope you're doing OK.....so nice of you not to forget us all here....I don't think we are forgetting you.....

    GGal ... The Challenge started back in October and runs thru to the end of May. I've taken several to register, though haven't taken any back yet to provide the finished evidence. Most of those finishes were the weekend before last and now the FWS is done. We pay $2 for each entry, and then the number of "points" are assigned according to the size of the finished product. Wonder if it's according to the measured size? or the # of pieces? If so I should get a gazillion points for that FWS!!! I keep meaning to take a pic of what I have finished up, but it just hasn't happened. Hopefully this weekend, being that I am in the last stretch and have the FWS done.

    As for what and how many ... right now all are done but one ... one table runner, three small table toppers, a bunch of mug rugs, and my first Mini!!! The last one I registered is a printed panel that I used for a "learn to machine quilt" class. It's never got finished, so now's the time. I'm debating how much work I'll put into it, as I'm not sure how much I like it, or can come to like it or what I'll do with it. I could call it quits and trim and bind it, though I'm thinking of the continuing theme of "learn to quilt" and might do some QAYG trials with it.

    So let's hope the world is good to me this weekend and leaves me alone to sew and sew!!!
