    Thank you oksewglad and grannyQ. Yes it is great to be done! I don't have to worry about "what to do next"! I have another quilt I'm piecing, and two that need quilting. I've got the small baby quilt all sandwiched, but my big "Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll" (last years Bonnie Hunter Mystery) is still in flimsy stage. I'm going to do Bonnie's new mystery Orca Bay that she just posted fabric requirements for on November 1st. Piecing starts on that November 18th when the first "clue" comes out. All her quilts are fabulous, I can hardly wait to see what Orca Bay turns out like!

    Jeanie, I've enjoyed looking at each of your blocks and now that they're finished and put together -- WOW! Both your quilts are beautiful!

    Jeanie they're beautiful. All along I thought I'd like the teal/brown best; now I can't decide---I love them both. You really have nice contrast in all your blocks and the sashing sets them off so nice. Congrats on a job well done!

    Thank you Nicky! We'd all love to see pics of your blocks as you do them---we're great cheerleaders! There are threads for each set of 2 blocks we did per week--what eye candy!!
    Good luck-it's a lot of work but well worth it in the end. I'm a much better piecer and quilter than when I started. If you have any questions, you've got lots of "experts" on here !

    Mission Accomplished!! .... Five sets of FWS blocks posted .....
    #17 thru 24
    plus #33 and #34

    If you're looking for the threads you can stalk me .... or check Evie's blog where she has all the threads listed.

    I haven't been happy with my photos, so yesterday took them outside for their photo ops! I think they're a little better and truer to colour than the previous ones. When you look, you'll see that the one on the right is always chopped off ... not so when I downloaded them from my camera, so I'll not zoom in quite so close for future pics. And here I thought I was doing good, by getting close-ups!

    ENJOY, my dear friends!!!!!!

    Not sure what the G stands for, but this is the "Farmers Wife Sampler" (Group, maybe) The original quilt along started last year and for 55 weeks sewed 2 blocks a week from the Farmers Wife book. Those posting now are latecomers or (dare I say) slackers who are trying to get the blocks finished. From one of the slackers!

    Thank you very much! Sorry I'm a bit late with my thanks, but have not really been "here" since the board had its extreme do-over. However, today, I thought I'd see what's new with the FWS gals.

    Weezie ... I hope you'll come on back and be with us more often! I'm still in awe of your quilt and being influenced by your quilt. Your setting triangles really have me as they quilt floats nicely on them and yet they don't overpower. Hope you'll be with us when the Pony Club rides into town.

    Hiya, QuiltE. I've been admiring your latest block pictures. They are stunning. I was impressed with your clever elimination of those 8 pieces on block #???? (32, I think). I will not be doing the Pony Club with y'all because I have a load of WIPs to work on. I actually did work a lot on WIPs when I was doing the FWS; I would get many weeks ahead on the FWS blocks and then work on other stuff until it was time to do more FWS blocks. However, I'm still so far "in the hole" that I'm not wanting to start another BOM at this time. I do plan to pop in here quite frequently and say "hello", see how things are going, see what's new, & watch the Pony Club progress.

    I totally understand, Weezie about too many WIPs! I'm much the same, and really didn't need to start the FWS with all the ones I have sitting in limbo. Actually, I should correct myself, as I didn't really start with the intent of it becoming a first and foremost project, but one for the in betweens. Well, needless to say I have become possessed by it and it's seemingly is in the front running for completions! I'm really enjoying it and discovering a lot more about quilting than I have from many other projects. I think that's why it's got my attention! Plus, I get bored easily, so matchy-matchy quilts with lots of repetition are not the best for me (even though I do them!) ... and well, let's say this one sure provides the Variety that IS the Spice of Life!!

    Pony Club ... I wasn't really "sold" on it, as I am so not a pony/horse person! Then as I did FWS I became more and more envious of you ladies working together for a year ..... which of course, I was not part and party to. I know it's just not quite the same experience for we latecomers.

    Absolutely ... I hope you will drop by the Pony Club, and check in on us with words of wisdom. And heck, maybe you'll get those WIPs so caught up that we'll lasso you into the PC!

    Hello RWQuilts ... I'm one of the latecomers and have admired your work in the block threads. So here's a nudge to encourage you, along with Evie and BeachComber to trundle on and get back in the FWS mode!

    Typically, the Farmer's Wife didn't do so much of the handiwork during the summer/fall, as there was so much more work to do, to tend the garden and store up the produce for the winter. I think the three of you were just keeping in her spirit!

    Good Luck, Ladies!

    Thanks, Jeanie! I'll be back often to say, "Howdy". I was planning to buy the Pony Club book, so I could at least read it ... plus I like to have all the block variety info. handy. However, I decided not to spend the money now as I'm pinching pennies so I can get a good machine to use strictly for quilting. I have lots of machines, but think I need one more to put on my corner table and dedicated to quilting only.

    I can't remember if I ever told you how much I like your gorgeous quilts. They are mighty nice. I particularly like the Christmas fabrics one.

    Thank you so much! Your words are very kind. My problem is that my space is much too small to lay out my quilt. What I need to do is to take it somewhere that I can pin my blocks onto a sheet so I can then bring it back home and lay it on my bed as I work on it and repin as I go. I am not quitting, I am just having to wait a bit for the right opportunity to pin my quilt, then I will finish the top.

    Good Plan ... find a friend, or a church hall/floor, or?? and lay them out. I remember reading that someone took them outside on a nice day and worked with them on the ground. (was that JanRN? or??) Good LUck!! We'll all be here to see it when you get it laid out (photo time!!) before you start the next stage!
