    Rita - I found your quilt photos - you did a lovely job! The quilt looks so nice with the smaller blocks inserted into the 12 inch star blocks... I may need to rethink my plan to make a wall hanging with the smaller blocks and go for the full-size quilt!

    Thanks for directing us to the photos! (Here is a link to her quilt: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-72444-1.htm ). :-D

    Thanks Jupiter, I think I will go with what I have also. I'm hoping to get my book today so I can look through and get started on finding some fabric medleys.

    MAGGIE ROSE: Jupiter very thoughtfully gave us the info early so we could read up. We aren't going to start till January. You have time...........;-)

    RITA: Your quilt is gorgeous!! The colors are stunning!

    I am really thinking about this. I live in a more rural area and don't have quilting friends so it would be fun to work with fun people and learn from them. Are you going to select a group of fabric and do all your blocks from that particular fabric?

    I think I am going to pick a group of fabrics. The sample quilt on the front cover of the book is Bernartex"s Nuance line. I do not plan to use that same line, but it helps to think about fabrics that coordinate with each other but still are definitely different prints (.... not all the same swirl in different color ways.)

    ... Yes to floral, stripe, plaid, swirl, tone-on-tone that all go together. I've been looking at fabrics.com. There you can see whole lines of fabric together. I will probably buy from a local quilt store if they have what I want.

    By the way, the book says that 1/2 yard cuts of 8 different fabrics is a good amount for this project. It may vary a bit if you do a lot of fussy cutting.

    hugs, Jupiter

    I ordered the book too! I'd like to play along.

    I'm not a huge fan of applique, but since I'm nearing the end of the pieced and paper pieced blocks in my Dear Jane I better learn how to love applique fast! :)

    I think this will be great fun.

    Ok. I'm going to try this. I'm not a very good quilter. Yet. I've ordered the book today from Amazon. I'm pretty excited since this will be my first block of the month quilt.

    Yes, Amazon has been really quick at getting the book out. I spent some quality time with the book today when I should have been working... :oops:

    The book is really lovely to look at and the instructions seem very clear - I love the spiral binding - I can't wait to get started! This is going to be great fun. Thanks for getting this organized Jupiter!
