    i do plan to use a 7 across-8 down layout (the 50 + 6 alternative blocks) so i will be making a pretty large quilt- definitly no need for sashings.
    and about that (daughter request for my -discarded- Iowa block...she wants a queen size quilt made out of it-she's so funny)
    anyhow-
    Oregon done- now on to work on a couple other projects i really need to be working on- suddenly the (season) is hitting! hubby watching football- that means me quilting

    Colleen. Your Oregon is beautiful. Have a wonderful quilting day! I plan to do the same, working on my OBW.

    CK, the thing I like most about this project is that each star is different. I don't think I could make a quilt of all the same so my hats off to you in doing one for your daughter. And I too thank PokerDiva for keeping us going. It will have definitely marked off a year when we're done. The year of the stars.

    Nicky & Judy, really nice OBWs. It's amazing how those turn out but I'm not ready to start one yet. Don't they waste a lot of fabric?

    Judy, Your stars look fantastic. I'm kind of envious that you're done.

    Great Oregon blocks!!

    PokerDiva, this is the best I can come up with for Oregon. Maybe you have a better idea. It has nothing to do with Oregon, but was recorded in Portland, and that counts. Hard to believe now what a controversy this caused in 1963.

    I think you did great with the colors whitepine. I always did like blue and green together. I like the song Louie Louie. I had no idea it was recorded in Portland.

    whitepine- i love your Oregon Block!
    and btw---there is NO WAY i am making my daughter a quilt with all the same block---
    (CK, the thing I like most about this project is that each star is different. I don't think I could make a quilt of all the same so my hats off to you in doing one for your daughter. )
    she just really likes the Iowa block i made & discarded and wants me to design her a queen sized quilt around that block- she knows me well enough to know- I discarded it in the first place- i won't be making more of it! to me it is a HORRENDOUS block (the new Iowa is so much better)
    we shall see what i wind up doing with it as a center feature---only time will tell & i have alot of other things in the works before i'm even willing to set that horrible block up & start considering...my daughter is a (purple girl) & i've never been all that into purple- so everything for her is a challenge- having to start with that block just puts the challenge up to a new level

    OK Colleen, that block is not HORRENDOUS. And I love purple.
