Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Nicky, Love your Michigan. I agree with you about it being time consuming and I'm not looking forward to S. Carolina, which is almost the same.
Vivian, Thanks for posting your star quilt. I don't have particular ideas for borders but enjoyed seeing stars on point. We're only halfway in ours, but it's time to start thinking about possible placements. I also like seeing the effect of different backgrounds. So far, mine are all the same and I have to decide soon if I want some to be different.
Here is my Mississippi. Almost caught up!
Boy Nicky, that one just pops. You are doing just great catching up.
Finally caught up! Here is my Missouri.
Good job on the catch up Nicky. Another outstanding block. Love the yellow.
