    Welcome back, Teresa. Losing your dad is difficult but quilting is great therapy for the grieving process

    Yes I miss the crawfish and boudin. We usually get some every time we go. We try and go during crawfish season and we always come back with boudin to put in the freezer. It doesn't stay there long though. We can't help ourselves.

    Love your block. The colors are great. Where are you in LA? I am from Baton Rouge. My parents are still there. I am new to quilting. I love seeing all the blocks but I'm scared to try it. I have never paper pieced.

    Teresa, I am sorry to hear about losing your Dad. Mine passed away on December 21st.

    Nelco and Kris, your blocks are so cool.

    Linda I love the colors of your block! So sorry you sprained your thumb!

    Wow, Nelda, Your block is bold and bright! I love how your star really stands out.

    I made a very pretty, almost perfect block with the batiks I bought. Trimmed it up and was ready to take a picture to share when I realized I had cut the seam allowance off the outside edge. So, I'll be making it again. I took four hours to carefully plan the colors and figure out where they go and make sure all the inner points and seams matched up perfectly.

    Advice to all, if you are paper-piecing turn your block right side up and use your ruler to trim 1/4" from your outer points, do not rely on the printed pattern as you may have sewn or stretched a bit off. I found one side trimmed perfectly, two would maybe work, and one was cut right off the point, no way I could sew a seam to attach another block without cutting off the points of my star.

I won't be be sewing, writing, rotary cutting or driving for a while. Sleeping last night was touch and go all night. Yikes. But, so far I am pleased with my section that I did finish.
    I love your colors! Can't wait to see all four pieces together.
