We are going camping next week and I am taking some applique with me. I have to have something in my hands at all times. LOL. OCD I think.
    Florence, I will be sure and post as I do the QAYG. It won't be before all the blocks are done, though, so I can be sure of my placements. I am excited to get there. I have used her method before on a Hawaiian Shirts Quilt (Hawaiian Shirts Recycled) and on a Tee shirt quilt (Peter's Memorial Tee Shirt Quilt is finished!). The Star Quilt however will have a border around each block, made from the same fabric as the joining strips, so it won't show! It will just look like sashing.

    Just for fun I exported my photos to Quilt Pro 5 for Mac and made a Virtual Quilt. Not sure at all about the sashing color, but it's just to get an idea. The blocks are in Alpha order for now but I can move them around.

    Now that is a super idea. Why didn't I think about that....

    I really feel it was a worthwhile investment. They have been great at targeting exactly what I need to be doing, educating me so I can do it without injuring myself, and giving me a ton of good support and encouragement. I would not try to fix a car without talking to a mechanic, and I would not fix my body without the help of a trained professional either. Totally worth every penny (and I spent a LOT of pennies! I bought a year's worth of appointments!)

    Thanks for the support everyone! I am making great progress and as soon as possible, will have a blissful reunion with my sewing machine!

    Nicky, your virtual quilt looks great and I think the order is pretty darn good the way it is. The only one I would move is the yellow star, last in the third row. Looks like a neat program.

    Thank you WhitePine. I see what you mean about the yellow block.

    Yes the QP software is quite handy. I used it for the 2011 Houses BOM quilt and am tempted to share that virtual quilt. The real thing is being quilted as we speak. I did not have the courage to FMQ it as it is 90" x 90". I am trying to be patient but I am dying to show it!!!
