    I am excited about this, am thinking of posting on Carol's board asking advice for choosing colors. I want to do the blocks but do not have time to pick individual colors each week. Have been reading advice from here also. Looking forward to starting.

    I've had my book for several years so it didn't include the pattern CD. However, because it was older and I'd used it quite a bit, I found it quite easy to rip pages out...chatted with a friend on the phone, ripped all the pages and straightened then all with my paper cutter and walla! They are perfect and ready for the page protectors and small binder. I could spend the money, but would rather buy fabric and tools! I think that to tie them all together, I will use one fabric for the background with all of the stars and then will just play with pretty fabrics!

    Have had this book for several years as well as the 40 ieced blocks and (shame on me) have not made a single one. This thread has given me a surge of ideas and plan to follow thru. My favorite color is blue so I think it will be the dominating color.

    Great idea. Let us know what she says. I, too, am thinking of one background color. Can't decide betweeen light or dark. I'm thinking light would give more color options, but I like the idea of black for a night sky. My book still hasn't arrived so I'm hoping for more ideas then.

    Happy birthday to your DD too. My DD will be 46. She was not suppose to live past teen years. She was also never suppose to be able to have children and she has an 18 year old son now so we are happy to celebrate all of her birthdays.

    REMINDER: I just wanted to remind those who are printing directly from the book not to forget about adding the 1/4" seam allowance. Of course you will only forget once I am sure because you will be so mad you won't forget again.

    That is EXACTLY what I was thinking, Carsey!
