Thanks DublB ... it's currently hanging at the LQS .... one of the shops in the ten stop Shop Hop for the month of July. So many will get to enjoy it. We even created a contest ... guess the number of pieces in the quilt. The winner receives the Pony Club book!

DragonflyNana I'm so glad you posted these pictures. There's another signature swap in process. You quilt will inspire us all. http://www.quiltingboard.com/member-...a-t187647.html

Thank you.

PS. Your second quilt is beautiful.

I'm catching up on this site after a years hiatus since my DH died and I went back to f/t teaching this past year. Gonna take this year to go thru my house getting ready for a downsize and getting back into my sewing room/studio and do some quilting and finishing of many UFO's. This thread has kept me in eye candy for the past couple days - of course that means I'm not getting anything else done either. But we DO have heat warnings for today & tomorrow for possible over 120 so this is the place to be & I'll add some of my scrappy creations I've managed to get pictures of in the age of web pages and digital cameras. One of the ones I'm trying to complete is the Farmers Wife which I worked on w/a group of ladies as BOM on this site starting a year ago October. Again, quit last year w/about 6 blocks to completion. I think it was by far the most fun as every block is distinctly different which makes it a real scrappy...

A beautiful group of quilts, AuntJo! ... I see your FWS hiding in behind the stacked coins.
I was one of the late comers to the FWS, and you'll see my finished FWS just a few posts before yours, in this thread. The FWS threads are all still there and many are working on them ... some newcomers too. So come on back to those threads, and we'll all be there to cheer you on to the finish line!

I too lost my husband, several years ago ... and sewing has filled many hours of my changed life. Here's to you finding more sewing time this summer and a long time into the future.

Gotta love little boys (see one sock on, one sock off, post #486). I miss when my boys were young. They're great now, too, of course!

Auntjo...beautiful quiltshow you gave us! I'm especially drawn to the "trip around the world"...it just pops! I like the more simple quilts (I do alot of them myself) because I feel they let the fabric shine for itself. As for the more intricate ones, I know the work involved! Absolutely beautiful!!!
