    Your blocks are so perfect rwquilts! Always look forward to seeing them.
    Thanks Jeanie! Just one more week, huh?
    One more week for blocks and then the Completed Quilts & the weekly update after that. Anne
    It's been a great journey and doing blocks two at a time made it a very do-able project! My problem is space...space big enough to lay out my blocks...hmmm...just thought I could get a sheet and lay it on my bed and pin blocks in place...that might work so I could roll it up...ya think???

    Thank you Violet, I purchased my backing fabric and wadding yesterday so hope to get it together this weekend and start quilting it. That should keep me occupied for a while :P

    Well I gotta say Block #110 is a test of skill & defianately backs up the meaning of scant 1/4" not much room for error in this block. All the tips from you ladies who have gone before me were very helpful! Startch starch starch, press press press! Sure is a Beauty! So far I think it is my FAV!

    Nice work! There is another block very similar to 110, but I can't remember which number.

    Ladies ... You have all shown a lot of creativity in these two blocks! many original impressions, for sure!Here's mine ...#109 -- Windows ... Sorry, but there's nothing too original from me!and#110 -- Wood Lily ... used that bright fabric from the Streaks of Lightning block. IMHO it doesn't look near so bright this time round!Name:  FWS109+110A.jpg

    Looking good! That spot of "lightning" will help balance the other spot when all is said and done. It sure upstages the lowly window, doesn't it. So can we call it done for your blocks or do you have a few rogue loners lurking? Another long day, had to correct that Beauty block! Gnight. G

    That orange does look great in the block! It's funny how it doesn't look as bright. Maybe because there is less of it. Anyway it will help balance out the other one. I think your Windows block is very pretty!

    You are so close to the end, aren't you! I can't wait to see your quilt put together!!!

    I have this rope in my hands. I can't figure out whether I found a rope or lost my horse.

    QNonnie and OKSGlad ... Thanks to my loyal fan club members for all your kind words!! I think three things happened that helped put that lightning into submission a little... less of it in a piece, not as stark of a difference from the orange to the red as the black, and the mottling of the red.

    I did do #111 last night ... so officially all 111 are done. Additionally, there'll be a 4-H block and a Log Cabin that I'll do to post with it. Then there'll just be the 4th #68 Postage Stamp to do with the last bunch of fabrics. If I've counted right, I'll have just the right number! If not, I'll have to recreate a little ... HSTs? or if short, a double block. I think I'm OK though.

    So close ... and yet so far!! ... and a long way to go with the sashing etc. I haven't heard yet whether my LQS has managed to get the fabric we found the other day on her sample cards.


    OKSGlad ... I've been wondering if you were able to sleep last night after your great success at the auction?

    Welcome MapleView!!!! ... a name like that could mean you could be located most anywhere in Ontario!!
    A special WELCOME indeed ... being that I also hail from this great province. (I'm in the Greater GTA-West!)

    You're going to love this Board. There's only one problem ... it's very addictive, and sometimes you get hooked so hard that you miss out on the valued sewing time!

    If you like this thread ... you might like to check out the other FWS threads. Also, there's a Pony Club quilt-along that's just nicely started. Maybe you'd like to saddle up and ride along with us in the venture??

    Here's some links for you ...

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/blocks-...ml#post4743239

    Would sure love to have another Ontarian along in the Pony Club!!

    I agree QNS. A nice simple block and kudos to your job on the more complex one.

    Oh so beautiful ... simplicity and complex represented in these two!
    Anael, the more I see your whites ... the more I know I "need" work with whites ... not that I need more to do!
