    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!

    This second is one I did for a co-workers daughter. The pattern screamed for scrappy but I will tell you - the little blocks were moved around on my design board numerous times over two weeks until I felt "balanced" enough to sew them into strips. She loves it and that is all that matters.

    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.

    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!!!

    The colours shown are pretty close to true, though they just don't have the dance in them, that you see IRL!
    If you'd like to see more FWS completed quilts, most of which are scrappy, as well as more shots of mine, please check out this thread ........

    They are beautiful! I can't pick a favorite! I had an Aunt Jody that we sometimes called Aunt Jo. I still miss her. I lost her in the fall o' '03, My Grandad in Feb of '05, My Dad & DFIL in March of '09. (MY DMIL has Alzhimer's so I've lost her too.) These losses are all wrapped up in each other. Someday I'll quit cryin'. I will say that buyin' my DGD's house has gone a long way in the healin' process! DGM sold it in '06 & I just bought it last month. It will be my "lake house"! I'm puttin' all o' DMIL's furniture there, so that is healin' too. I feel they are w/me there.

    Oops I see that I started ramblin' again. I'm so sorry.

    Oh my goodness! I'm going to spend hours on that thread.
    Another one for my bucket list ... and since I just turned 60 I guess I'd better start taking better care of myself so I can get it all done!

    Oh yes Krystyna ... you should do a FWS!
    A block here and there and they soon add up .... and then you get possessed with it until you finish it right off! Post them on the FWS threads as you make them, and you'll get lots of cheers and support along the way!

    There's only one book ... The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt by Laurie Aaron Hird.

    You can order it from her on her site/blog.
    Some stores carry it and I know some purchased it thru Amazon, etc.

    If you're interested, Laurie offers a personalization if it's ordered from her.

    Or you might consider the FWS Pony Club Quilt also by Laurie ... or both! And remember, there's active followers to the threads for both of these quilts, so you're sure to have company along your journey(s).

    As for scrap buster ... the only new material I purchased was the sashing, cornerstones, borders and binding. Everything else I had, including backing material which I felt was as a good of a match/blend as any I would have purchased!

    So Krystyna .. order it up and start stitching!

    OMG, QE you actually counted all the FWS block pieces. Did you include the sashings and cornerstones or just what was in the blocks? Like dublb, yes it is a spectacular quilt no many how many times we get to see it.

    Yes, I just learned about the FWS Pony Club the other day on a segmant of Sewing With Nancy. Here is a link that tells about it. I think I will start out with this book. http://www.thefarmerswifequilt.com/page04.html

    A lot have included ponies in their blocks. For mine, I've kept to a a rural theme ... a mish mash of anything and everything. Sometimes the block tells me what I should use. Other times, not.

    Take a look at the PC threads and you'll see the different approaches that have been taken with the fabrics.
