    anyhow- beautiful!
    Ckcowl, your Kentucky is so pretty. Love the colors.

    I'm going to make a quilt for our king-size bed. I guess I will need more blocks! What are the 6 alternate blocks? I read through the book but didn't see a reference to it. Can you explain? I think it will be beautiful too!

    Patricia, in the front of the book it shows how to put parts of different blocks together to make a new block. That is what I am doing. Example....Here is my combination of California and Colorado...and Arizona and Idaho.....

I could never had done this if I hadn't learned Carol's way of PP. So I'm real thankful this group started.

    Well here is Kentucky.
    Please provide a link to Carol Doak's tutorial.........

    Just checking in to see everyone's handiwork. Love the Kansas stars - Poker D's center really has pop and just grabs your eye, but they are all beautiful.

    After nearly what, 4 or 6, weeks of absence I finally made it back into my sewing room this weekend. I finished my California block (will post later today) and even though the center was off, I decided to set it aside and call it done and move on. Went to start cutting Colorado only to realize I returned the library book without copying the pages that included the cutting charts for each block - Whoops! So I just ordered a copy off of Amazon. While I was sewing this weekend I also put together a UFO top I have been sitting on for a year or so.

    Productive time and I am glad I am not the only one behind. Look at it this way: those of us who are behind will just keep you oohing and ahhing that much longer!

    Have a great week everyone!!

    Patricia those blocks are so lovely - I like the contrast and can not wait to see what you come up with for setting it and putting them together! You are like sewing lighting - Ka Chow!!!

    I absolutely LOVE these blocks and the colors are fabulous!! I'm cleaning and doing laundry today, I'm hoping to start my stars after dinner. I thought I would go ahead and start on Kansas and go backwards to catch up. Then each week keep on with the order everyone else is in. Well sounds good anyway!
    Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in this I am truely blessed!

    I got my book on Ebay for $11, is in the mail as I type right now. I will pick up some more papers tongiht at the quilt shop so I have them on hand when we start. Will be watching the pretty stars shine here while I wait. I am pulling my batiks out and going to use a main background color on all of them and the rest different. I think that will work for me. thank you for welcoming me aboard.
