    What a super idea, I have the book, bought it a few months ago and actually made 3 North Carolina star blocks for my partner in the quilting bee swap. I want to jump in, great way to keep me in line, I need pushing often and this way I can make one of each star, I look through the book often and have never been able to decide which one I love the best! Thank you, when do we start???

    Thank you, Carrie, for leading this project. I have about 15 done and love these blocks. Now where did I put them?????
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    BeckyPotter, you might want to practice before you start with the Carol Doak Stars. They're not that hard but very time consuming and lots of tiny pieces. There are great tuts on the internet, just google paperpiecing and you'll find a lot of them.

    QNS, there's no foundation disk with the 50 Stars book. There's a Yahoo group and when you sign up you can download the pdf files of all 50 blocks so you won't have to scan them yourself.

    I have the book, got some of Carol's paper. Need to load the dics in the book and see what it is. I am looking forward to working on this project.

    Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

    Hello!

    Looks like we are going to have a great group starting/continuing in January. First I want to let everyone know, Quilt Pro has the Foundation Factory 50-Stars on sale for 50% off (shows in "cart") if you are thinking about making your blocks a different size than the 12" it is a great tool. http://www.quiltpro.com/page/Foundat...0_Fab_Mainpage

    Now I will try to answer questions:

    newbee3--yes, you are more than welcome to join...glad to have you.

    Anael--you can use the foundation factory as a stand alone program

    BeckyPotter--if you do some practice blocks, then I think you would be able to handle these. Here is a link to a simple starting block: http://quilterscache.com/StartQuilti...tingthree.html

    Retired Fire Chief--we will start with the first block (Alabama) and share pictures the first week of January.

    Jan--hope you find your blocks and are sure to show us!

    QNS--foundation factory (download or cd) is for the 50 stars; DJ has the EQ disk

    Thanks for the heads up about the 50% off sale, I just bought it. Will be printing them out so I can get started the first of the year.

    This sounds like a great "New Years Resolution". I think I will get the book and join in! Thanks for such a great idea!

    Thanks Carrie but what I mean is, if I buy one of the Carol Doak cd's, do I still need Foundation Factory as well?
