    Nor do I have it in my sewing room. It is in the hallway and limited by the 7 foot ceiling. SIL put the lights up for me on one of their visits here. It is built from hard board and 1x2 lumber pieces, sprayed with glue and batting added on front side, then blue flannel cloth stapled to the frame.

    It reminds me everytime up & down the hallway what I need to do next. (Without hollering at me!!! LOL!!)

    I love your blocks QNS. They're so colorful and I like the sashing you're using. I'm also jealous of such a large wall space. I have a flannel sheet on a rod and it's only about 4 x 4. That is going to be beautiful!

    Thanks, rwquilts. (It actually looks much better off-camera!) I don't NOT like it, but ... scrappy sometimes takes some getting used to for me.

    It may be of no help to you BUT I will tell you, if you would like, what I did to lay out my blocks in a rather small area. Let me know if you want me to 'splain my method, because it will be a bit wordy.

    QNS: Looking great so far! Thanks for posting your picture; I was feeling a bit conspicuous, being the only one to post a picture.

    ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!! I know you hand quilted each block, but is the border design machine quilted? Your blocks sure look good together ... see, you did all that worrying about your fabric choices for nothing!

    Spectacular!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Your border quilting frames is so even and frames it up nicely. Like the red border/binding touch!

    And because you QAYG, yours is truly DONE!!! :)

    Thank you all very much. I enjoyed this project so much--well at least 98% of the time LOL. Some of those blocks were real boogers. Weezie, I machine quilted my blocks; I used my old handquilting templates so each block was quilted differently. I'm not a fan of over-all meandering in a quilt with individual blocks---just my humble opinion, I think they look lovely in someone else's quilt.
    You mentioned the borders. I'll definitely do QAYG for our next project execpt the borders. I had them all mapped out and even but when they meet at the corners they were off. Each corner is diffent but no one will ever see all 4 corners at the same time LOL.
    Thanks again for all your support during this incredible fantastic journey. Looking forward to the next one!
    Peace-Jan

    Well, here is the 2nd half of my quilt. Finally finished, but not quilted yet. The border and sashings are a cream color, they photographed lighter.

    Jeanie I love your quilt. You did a fantastic job and used all my favorite colors. You put them together so well. I love the light sashing with the dark setting triangles. That is just beautiful!!

    Again, thanks everyone for all your nice comments. I'm debating (with myself) about doing the FWS Pony quilt. It looks really difficult, harder blocks than FWS. I'm not sure of my abilities--and I don't want to subject you all (yinz in Pittsburghese) to my whining again.

    Jeanie I think my next project will be in the colors you used--just love them!!

    Jan and Jeanie, your quilts are beautiful! I'm still putting mine together but there just doesn't seem to be enough time . . . (I have admitted to being slow!).

    Excellent creation JeanieG. You mention second half, is the first half also 50 blocks? If so, you are incredibly creative. I'm trying to make 80 blocks for a twin bed and have been for what seems a year. I have the same 35 blocks on my design wall that I dust every once and a while! Belles

    Jeanie, you should post the "first" half also. That was another beautiful quilt. Is it done yet?

    Yes Bella, my 1st half was the 1st 55 blocks, and my 2nd half was the last 55 blocks.

    Evie, I have the borders to quilt on the 1st half, then binding, then DONE!!! I've ordered the backing for the 2nd half and it is not here yet. But plan to get right on quilting that one too.

    I really miss not having my 2 blocks a week to do! I just loved having them to look forward to.

    Jan, I think we can manage The Pony Club quilt! It cannot be that much harder than some of the blocks we just completed. Hey, there are always a couple that we don't like when we have them done! More potholders!!! LOL
