    JeanieG ... would that be orange creamsicles? Such realistic saddle material!! What incredible piecing you have done.


    DublB ... Maybe better than the red ribbon?

    Don't notice me, I was beein' smart markin' out that blue. Yeah, I think that it is better than a first place ribbon, but how do you feel? If you feel it is better, then it is.

    Yes, in a lot of ways I feel it is better to be asked to have it hang at the LQS. She has a lot more at stake in putting it into her shop ... than a Judge who remains unknown!! And so do I have a lot at stake ... being that I will know a lot of people who see it ... and quilters tend to be harder judges of their peers work than the spectators who stroll by at a Fair! YIKES!!! what have I agreed to?

    Jeanie, your blocks are wonderful. I don't think HT is too busy--I think it captures the spirit of the Pony Club. I also agree with QE--mmmmm orange sherbet. And what perfect piecing!!

    Oh Jeanie- I'm sorry, How did I miss your blocks???? They are lovely! Such detail! I love those saddles in home treasures. I think that it may look a li'le busy alone but in the quilt it will be just the right movement in the right place! I also agree that the orance in your icecream bowl looks like sherbert.

    Termi ...... It's a challenge that Works4Me, another Canuck and I started awhile ago. It's more a personal challenge than a competition ... we were both saying, I have this project that I want to do for Canada Day ... some year! First we challenged each other to do it ... then we decided to throw it out to everyone, world wide!
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/quiltin...e-t186260.html

    W4Me has hers completed ... whereas I have spent too much time on FWS and PC and not moved ahead with my Mr. Monty!

    OBTW .... it's anything and everything ... whether a PUP that's been sitting for awhile or a new project; something fun and whimsical or something serious; big or small. Anything fits!!

    As for the date ... we chose July 1st as it is Canada Day ... and close to your American 4th July celebrations. The patriotic part does not have to be national patriotism, but could be showing your community patriotism or heritage or ??? ... really anything goes. Back to the date ... it's just a date .... and honestly, we expect it will continue on, long after!!!

    So Come One, Come All!!
    ... Come on over and join in the fun!!!


    (and yes, it's become quite a little chatty hang out too!)

    I like the saddles, Jeanie! Maybe you don't like it as well cuz it's paired next to the Orange Sherbet block. Once you get it mixed with a nice companion block plus sashing you may change your mind!
    Not getting much done here--house has quieted just a bit, enough for me to catch a nap late this afternonn. Hopefully the 2 little ones will get close to their at home routines for the rest of the week. Now that the Wisconsin crew has headed home it will make a difference.

    Here are my block for the week. JanRN I almost took your comment about templates for the Ice Cream block as a dare but backed down when I figured out just how many different size pieces there were and how critical the placement is. That would have been simply over the top. PP for me on this one!

    I'd call you a chicken, Ggal, if this wasn't a Pony Quilt LOL!! I can't imagine using templates. Both of your blocks are so pretty; and so well done-look at those points!
