    RW love the colors in your block-so pretty. I love that dark plum fabric.

    Anne, hope you're going to miss Hurricane Irene when you go to NC

    And YES, I'm bringing all my blocks.setting stuff with me to lay out on the floor where there isn't any foot traffic. I can switch blocks around to my liking before stitching them up. Anne

    Lovely blocks everyone. I am going to miss my weekly ration of eye candy! By whatever name, I'm glad we ended up with an easy block. Now to figure out my setting . . . . :roll:

    I'm not a wifey-come-lately :wink: I started with the group right at the start. All of you who are posting your last block are friends to me. I will miss the weekly visit.

    I'm glad to be in good company with others who are traveling the road at their own speed.

    I, too, keep the links of each week's photo pages so that when I start a block I can go look at everyone's beauties. It is such great inspiration.

    I do appreciate everyone looking in and making comments when we post blocks later. It feels like we've got our own cheering squad.

    Congratulations, well-meant and well-deserved, to all of you have finished!

    Hi QuiltE...Isn't it lovely to have company? I'm somewhere around 50 blocks. I started with the group and did about 36 blocks then didn't do much. I picked up again with them around the 60's. So I'm not exactly in numerical order.

    I had wanted to catch up this summer while I was on summer vacation (teacher), but junk happens. I made 6 blocks the first week then about 3-4 more the entire summer.

    As soon as the beginning weeks of school settle down, I hope to back to it. Every week the blocks are posted it only makes me eager to get back to it!!

    How did I forget to post my final block :oops: As there was a similar block already in this quilt I went with a totally different block for my last one (hope that's ok) This is one of my favourite blocks 54-40 or Flight

    Congratulations JeanieG on your grandson, there is nothing more precious in this world as a new baby.

    Also a huge round of applause to Anne (Honchey) for all the work she has done every week on this long but enjoyable journey. Kept us all going..

    I also want to thank everyone who has posted pics of blocks and comments over the past year. This was my first time participating in a sew along and I have enjoyed every moment of it. Thank you everyone :thumbup: Can't wait to see who joins us for the Pony Club quilt in the new year...

    oooh pretty block, Karen!! I like that particular block too but I really like the colors you used (usually see it in red, white, blue). I'm making a note of your colors for possible use in Pony quilt. Hasn't this been fun?

    Wonderful blocks everyone. I should be home from stifling Phoenix (115* +-) to cool Southern California (75* - 85*) by Friday. Will post all my blocks a few days after.

    Anxious to start laying out the second half of my blocks into a quilt. My first half quilt is all quilted except for the border, did that before I left. Need to figure out what quilt design to use on the border. Was thinking of a double ribbon type design. Does anyone know a good site that has free quilting designs???

    Baby was very jaundiced at birth and had to stay another day under the sun lamps. The pediatrician said he was beautiful, and his color is normal now. He want to nurse all the time, poor mommy.

    Yay, Jeanie! Doesn't it feel great? I just looked at the recent blocks you posted--they're all so pretty and well done. I couldn't pick a favorite if I had to--I love them all. Can't wait to see them all put together (no pressure LOL).

    I'm using a cream color sashing and brown cornerstones. I have the fabric and hopefully will be cutting it out this week. Now for the "shuffling" of the blocks around on the display board to find where I want them.
