    I just ordered the Foundation FActory CD so now I can make smaller size blocks. I got a $10.00 discount at check out!!! So for the CD and a computer download it came to under $14.00 with shipping.

    ladydukes--I don't actually own either quilt-pro or EQ, but I have a stand alone program each (QP: Carol Doaks stars; EQ: Dear Jane). I definitely like the options available in EQ more....I am sure the full program of QP has more options than just the Foundation Factory...hopefully someone else can give you a better idea.

    Jan--Yes, we are doing the blocks in the order of the book (alphabetically).

    I am one whose planning to make 2 small quilts using coordinating fabrics...one for DH and one for me. His will have blue background and mine purple.

    sweet--the book gives yardage info for the 12" blocks...not sure one the smaller size blocks. I will check and let you know what I find out....the book is in the "clubhouse" (my sewing shed). I am heading out shortly.

    I got an email and quilt-pro has extended their sale through today...which I see some of you were able to take advantage of. Yay!

    Yes, it's great that it is still on sale. What great timing. Thanks for the info, now hope the book come in before the fabric sales go out.

    Jan, with 50 blocks and if you're making 2 quilts, you can have 2 square ones unless you don't like that. If you skipp two blocks you can make one quilt 6 x 8 blocks. I'm not as anal as you are but I hate odd numbers/sizes too!

    JanRN, extra two blocks could go on the back side of the quilt or skip two that you did not like...or put them on the pillow sham...to highlight the states where you were born.

    It would be nice if we had the other US territories as quilt blocks - them maybe we could come out with the right amount of rows across and down...a thought?
    I am all in...I jumped on the sale and purchased Foundation Factory AND Quilt Pro...but I forgot to buy the book...has anyone seen it on sale??

    The book has some great block combination samples in it, you could make those if you want more than 50 for your quilt(s) but not any duplicate blocks.

    Here are the fabrics I am using. I was going to do a kaleidoscope quilt with the butterflies, but figure I will get a similar effect in the stars...so there will be a little of that fabric in every block.

    Pic #1 butterflies
    Pic #2 are background fabrics
    Pic #3 are all the fabrics I will be using

    Most of the print fabrics are from the line "Shimmer"; the background fabrics are "Suedes"

    Carrie, those fabrics are "to die for"!!! Absolutely stunning. I think mine will be in a red/white/blue theme.

    Carriem I love your fabric, oh wait I have some in my stash just checked and I have exactly what you have there. Just goes to show we have excellent taste I purchased mine to make DD a quilt as she loves butterflies, just never got around to it (yet)

    My colour scheme will be red black and white with maybe a touch of gold here and there

    sewmany, thanks
    I think you don't need the book when you have the download and when you're a member of the Yahoo group you can download all the PDF files.

I had planned to work on paper-piecing and applique this year, but was rather sidetracked. So I guess both are on the agenda for 2014. I am sure I will not be able to keep up, but will give it a shot.

    I can't remember who was asking about yardage, but I was wrong...I can't find a recommended yardage in the book.(I am making Dear Jane in 2014 too, and it's listed in that). Maybe I found some recommendations on the 50 stars thread on this board from 2013....I was thinking someone who used the same backing fabric said she used approx 7 yards. I'll check some pages and see if I can find it.

    Thanks for the compliments on my fabrics. I saw them and had to have them. Mirabelle, I too am a big fan of butterflies. I know they will get cut up in this quilt, but there is a nice border fabric with some smaller butterflies I will use to finish it.

    Anael--pretty stars...both in the fabric and finished "states".

    If I counted right we are up to about 25 so far planning to start in January. YAY!
