    I felt the same way; very frustrating. I was not resizing enough. I take my pics down to 15%.

    OK here it is again. I think. This is the only place I have to resize anything, and for some reason it just doesn't like my resizing. Oh well....fingers crossed....here is Alabama!

    I've loved all the stars. My book sets on the floor by my bed. Can't get my block down that way. You're all encouraging and great tips as I've reviewed each entry. Must go to the fabric stash and get going...The posted blocks are each unique in their own way. Way to go.....!

    Welcome, Robert. I decided to do this instead of the BOM this year.

    Everybody is so on the ball. Didn't expect to have so many get theirs done today. I am impressed. Love your block Janey.

    Nice blocks everyone.... I don't have my book yet... Should be here this week.... Looks like I'm behind before I even start. LOL I've never done this but I got one of Carol Doak's DVD's and I loved it so I'll be jumping in with both feet. Hope I don't drown because I've read that some are very hard.

    Whitepine... too funny... I have the same problem with my kitty... I can't take a picture of any quilt I do without him getting in the middle of it. He is my "Official Quilt Inspector" .

    Janet. Not to worry. None are really any harder than another. Some just have more pieces. I have confidence that you can do them. Cn't wait to see your first block.

    Hmmm ... I wonder how many of us (me included) couldn't wait to get started and have had their block ready and waiting, for days and days. LOL

    Sure, the more the merrier. We are making these for ourselves, not a swap, so you can do any you want to. We are just starting at the beginning and started with Alabama.

    You're right. I printed out all three sizes. I am also doing DearJane and decided I can't bear to work with such small pieces if I did this as eight inches. I decided to put them together on point. If I've measured right… 12" squares will make it a nice queen size. They just seem so big on diagonal.
