Those are both so pretty. I'm on a little road trip to Florida. But I promise to catch up when I get home.
2.5" stamp swap! Come join the fun.

Beautiful blocks before me guys. Just going on 6 AM here. Here is my Arizona and it could also have used more contrast.
Wow ladies, are you all up at the crack of dawn or what? Of course, you are not all on Pacific time, I get it, but still, early birds over here!!
Love the blocks and I agree they don't all need high contrast to be beautiful. The difference in value really shows you how many variations there are when choosing fabrics. I am still working on Alaska and hope to have mine finished and posted later today - I even let my husband sleep in this morning so I could negotiate some quilting time!
Great work can't wait to see more!
When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000 step process."
Piecing, then quilting, with the North Wind blowing,
The days go by quickly when I am sewing.
Wow, I'm really liking the colors this morning. Iwillquilt, the pinks are very pretty. Wvhill, the paisley make a very subtle star with the white diamonds. Tomilu, the small print lets the pattern really show. Pokerdiva, I LOVE that print that you've used on all of them so far. Great stars!
Boy, did I have problems this morning logging in. What's up with that? Everyone's stars so far are wonderful. I'm getting ready to put piece #4 on mine.... It's a long haul, but I really like paper piecing. (Never done it before) It it time consuming, but the end result is worth it. I had a heck of a time getting the first 2 pieces on. OMG my seam ripped got lots of use last night. I'm thinking... one day I may make a whole quilt of Alaska... I really like that one so far. It's the one with 104 pieces... Yikes!!!
