    Alabama

    I will try again to post my Alabama - particularly after seeing all the gorgeous one posted already. Was so frustrated this morning, I just shut everything down and went downstairs to sew. I'm back to see if I can post. Gadzooks, I hate this computer. Anyway, read everything Quilting Nonnie said and tried to access it. Thanks for taking the time to do that for me. My computer, when I right click the picture, gives me the options of Paint-Windows Live Movie maker-Windows Live Photo gallery-Windows Media Center and Windows Photo Viewer. I did find somewhere - and can't find it again a place where I reduced the size, so I'll try that one. I did make a separate file for Carol Doak start separate from other photos, so that may help. I've never had this problem before, but was always using the desk top computer, not the lap top. if this doesn't work, it back downstairs to take another picture (cause, of course, I cleared the chip in the camera after I downloaded the pictures). I'll off load this one onto the desktop and try from there...fingers crossed...here we go

    I know this is Week One, but I thought of something and wanted to pass it along before I forgot when it was time for our trip to Hawaii. I had cut pieces for this block to make a wall hanging, and cut all the B-4 pieces the size called out. None of them fit, they didn't even cover the seam allowence.

    In section B location 4, the medium green is listed as cutting to 1-1/2" x 4". Way wrong. it should have been 1-3/4" like the other pieces like this, but I think 1-3/4" is too small. Like PokerDiva, I too cut all pieces 1/4" wider -- 2" makes a world of difference instead of 1-3/4".

    And I have to comment again on how beautiful these blocks are. Makes me think that picking one block and doing it scrappy with a common background could be interesting, too. OMG, I'll never live long enough to make all these things on my Quilt Bucket List.

    Thanks PokerDiva, paintmejudy, The following blocks have the astericks: (7) Connecticut, (11) Hawaii, (23)Minnesota, (28)Nevada, (41) South Dakota, (43) Texas, (45) Vermont, and (48) West Virginia.

    nickylsf, I was going to wait also but, just thought that I would try to head off at the pass any problems I might have.

    WOW. What awesome, spectacular stars you ladies have done. Not sure that I can live up to what you all have made. But, one can only try. I think maybe I will have to purchase the book after all. Guess I'll have to go dig in my pile and see what I have. Look forward to seeing more of everyones work. Thanks again BrendaK

    Be kind to yourself, by being kind to others. When you help others you help yourself.

    Judy, I have the book, fabrics but because of other things I have to get finished first I haven't started yet and I think there are a few of us.
