    Jillnjo, I'm just getting caught up on posts. Wow! What a beautiful quilt you have. I'm not a fan of yellow but I love the way you've used it. It ties all your other colors together and adds a spark. I really need to rethink using yellow in my quilts. You have a nice balance of colors in all your blocks and your blocks are done so well. Great job and congrats on finishing. This was a tough one!

    Everyone's quilts are just gorgeous! I am in awe. I completed my first block last night and am using 1930's reproduction fabrics. However, my block is a small 6 1/4" X 6 1/4" so I'm going to rip or either start a new one and aim for 6 1/2" X 6 1/2".

    txstitcher and gollytwo--show your progress on the FWS block threads. I'm slowly working on mine using Civil War Fabrics. It would be fun to see your blocks.

    Congratulations on your first block! You might find that all of your blocks will be that 1/4 inch smaller if there are a lot of seams. That elusive "slightly less than 1/4" seam can really eat up a lot of fabric if it gets a little fat. Sashings can be the equalizer in some cases. Enjoy the journey and show off your handiwork. We love the eye candy when pictures are posted.

    Gee it disappeared before I could post a photo of my FWSQ that is 102x108, more than 145 blocks that depicts my childhood memories on the farm to current times, like no contrary wife at first, but there was a contrary husband square that reads 'wild thyme'. Creekside Quilts in Des Moines, Iowa, Jeanie did the quilting work that exceeded my expectations. Loved the support of the QB FWSQ group every week for two years, joined them again on PC trail which is almost done. Backside of quilt:Name:  Backoftop1.JPG

    I'm so happy for you QNSue that you have completed the FWS journey ...... it is certainly a masterpiece.
    You must be soooooooooo pleased and having a hard time to not keep looking at it.

    Everytime you look at it, you'll see something different that your LAQ did, and will remember another one of your stories. I know I see different things ... and while I don;t have the stories you do to accompany it, I know that I have many memories with the blocks.

    Thanks for being such an encourager to my journey ... and it's been such a pleasure to be with you later in the FWS and through the PC. Now for us all to get our PC's finished!

    One more border for my Easy Street Quilt, and I will be pulling out one of my PC Quilts to put on the display wall! I have the sashing and cornerstones for the Pony Quilt, so will start with that one first. I plan to piece the back of that quilt with all the extra pony fabric in a collage on the back.

    Of course you can do it ... just take it one block at a time, and you'll be surprised how fast they add up!

    Good Luck!

    Honchey ... check out JeanieG's and my favourites, the different types of Fusions. So many different colours (like over 100) in most of the Fusions! I'm sure I saw a charcoal in the Fusions Mist ... and probably in the others too. Will be a nice frame for your blocks, being softer than a true black.

    My friend gave me two 15" x 15" horse pieces from a panel. I plan to somehow cut my remaining horse fabrics into shapes and work from the 15 X 15 pieces out. I don't know what size quilt I will have yet, have not seen the PC Pony quilt pieces in a while - don't even know how many I have! LOL

    We are going out with our camping group next week, so will get the PC Pony squares out when I get home. Gee maybe my BB will be here when I get back!

    Honchey, it was a dark charcoal grey/black which I ran out of so the corner on one side did change from what was used in the rest of it. And I did not learn my lesson and the same happened on the PC quilt...last 35 blocks will have different fabric 'cause I could not get any more RK fusion mustard yellow fabric. So be it.
