    Hi All, I have started to PP these blocks. I have finished # 23 but #24 is still in pieces. I got the little squares all mixed up. Oh well, I hope to get it done tonite. Anne

    I'm still working on 24 too. I finally got a job and training is exhausting me. I come home and don't feel like doing anything. But I will get caught up before next week. I drafted it in Quilt Assistant and clicked the paper piecing tab but it didn't do it right and I had to go back in and manually rename some of the pieces.

    I'm distracted by video game new releases. Good season.

    I'm pp'ing, too. Thanks for starting these threads, Honchey.

    Where do you find the paper piecing patterns?

    Hi, I have started doing some of these too, & love them! I am piecing mine, but for those of you interested in pp, on the yahoo group for this, they have added the pp blocks to their files! So, join that group, lurk if you prefer & find the pp blocks! This is the site the author of the book is on too, in case you are interested!

    Suzanne, If you go to the FWS Yahoo site there is a Foundation PP file for all of the blocks. They can now be exchanged without any type of penalty. I now have EQ7 and don't even have to use it. All you have to do is download the # block you need--the work is already done for you. Isn't that great?

    Or, you can make your own pp. I tend to make mine in larger pieces. It's like creating a puzzle you then get to play.

    Definitely join the yahoo group if you haven't already. Good pix and info.

    I keep making additional blocks in my FW fabrics. Here's my 4H bonus block. I also made a Scottie.

    I just joined the Farmers Wife Sampler group on Yahoo and I must say, it was rather nice to just print out a block instead of first drawing it in EQ and then printing it out!

    DITTO !!! It was really VERY generous of Marianna Bergkamp to do this for the Yahoo Group and being able to download them is great--- saving soooo much time.
    I just finished # 24--I was a little bothered that there wasn't enough contrast between 2 of the fabrics but after it was all together I was satisfied with it. Anne

    Sure is! I had already redone it and have it about half done but I bookmarked the site for future blocks. I joined Yahoo when we first started the quilt.

    Well, I signed on the FWS Yahoo site and spent a half hour filling out forms and was never allowed into the secret FWS group. I just kept seeing the same page that confirmed my completed form. Can you give me the www. address? At this point I don't know if I'm approved or not. Thanks for letting me let off steam and I hope I'll be able to paper piece some of the blocks since I enjoy paper piecing rather than templates. Again, thanks. Belles

    Hi Belle, After I get on yahoo I click on groups and them my groups come up and I click on FWSGroup and then files.

    I didn't have a problem being approved. Check back. I think I had to introduce myself to the group and let them know where I want my emails sent to. Have you done all that yet?

    Okay, This is for all the ladies that have an EQ program and know how to use it.

    If a person were to take the PDF block that is sized for 6 inches and make it a 3 inch block--what % would you set the printer at to get it to that size? I'm referring to the PP foundation blocks that we can use from the Yahoo site. Anne

    I don't know, but I was wondering if there were a way that we could import the blocks into our EQ so we could resize and print any size easily?

    Hi All, I wrote to a moderator of the FWS Group on Yahoo and she replied to me that after you sign up there's an email from the group sent to you that you needed to respond to in order to avoid spamming. She said that sometimes the email will go to the spam file so check your spam fille to see if it's there.
    Also noted that there are alot of people joining just to get their files and not contributing anything to the group and then dropping out-I don't think that's right either. I started an album to showcase my blocks to date and I do respond occasionally to some of the posted messages. It wouldn't hurt for others to do the same. Hope everyone gets to read this. Anne

    Honchey,
    I am also signed up on the yahoo group and have posted my blocks there. But I definitely consider our group to be my home group since we all started at teh same time. My blocks from the pp or foundation piecing method come out a bit bigger but I figure I will just trim them. It is really worth it for me with the smaller pieced blocks. Otherwise I would have a big mess.
