    Anael, You have a lot of samples of backgrounds to look at here......all the same, dark or light, or scrappy, or focus fabric. Do you have your star fabrics picked out?

    LOL no whitepine, I know I want to use batiks in bright colors, maybe mix them with some other fabrics. I would love to use a dark background but can't find the right fabric! I don't want solid black so I keep looking. There's no hurry, I have lots of other projects to finish.

    Oh my Nicki........... You have inspired me. I just might finish my quilt. BTW so many of you have admired Doak's fab 50, that you might also be interested in doing her "Mariner's Compass Stars". There are only 24 of them. Here is my compass quilt. Of Course it is not put together....yet. LOL

    MonaLisa, they are beautiful. I have that book and have made some for swaps but right now I am kina burnt out on PP. May do them at a later time. I tried to pick a favorite of your stars but just couldn't.

    Nicky, Spec..star..cular!! You (and everyone who finishes) should send a picture to Carol Doak. Congratulations.

    MonaLisa, Love your "Mariner's Compass Stars". I'm kind of with Poker Diva on stars & paper piecing right now. But...

    Thank You, Florence, for hosting this wonderful starlit year. I, for one, would never have attempted nor finished 50 stars. It has been a lot of fun.

    Mona Lisa, your Mariners compass quilt is gorgeous! I have that book too and would like to do it one of these days. As mentioned by Florence I might take a break for a while from the paper piecing but I definitely want to do this at some point. I love your blues.

    I have signed up for a couple Craftsy classes (they're on sale right now for half price) and I want to focus on those for a while.

    There's another wonderful paper piecing group that I belong to: Carol Doak's Yahoo group. Check it out! They have a lot of great free patterns, quilt patterns, blocks of the month, challenges etc.

    I think we're on West Virginia. I love Isaac Guillory's rendition of Sixteen Tons.

    Anael, I wanted a dark background too but not black. I found a batik that was kinda dark blue with some purple in it. I really wanted a dark purple but couldn't find what I wanted.I used brights mostly batiks. I look forward to seeing your blocks.
    Nicky I love your quilt. I still need to piece my back so I can either quilt it or take it to the longarmer. Not sure which i will do yet. Probably will send it out to be quilted it is pretty big and I want the quilting to be special. This is my quilt, I plan on keeping it.
    Mona Lisa I love the Mariner Compass stars. I hadn't seen that book. I am jumping right into another paper piecing project. I plan on joining the New York Beauty group. I am hoping to do it totally scrappy. I love paper piecing.

    Oh I am loving seeing your blocks and fabrics up close. I will do a scrappy one too when I am ready to begin. I don't really save scraps but I have enough fabrics in my stash that I will use.

    Does a CD come with the book?

    The CD that comes with the book is only instructional for learning how to PP. You have to order the CD with the blocks separately but you can do what most of us did and take your book to Staples or Office Depot and have the spine taken off and put it in a 3 ring binder. Makes it easier to take copies. Hope that helps.

    Wow...I love those colors together. Beautiful block.

    I am a geek, so I also downloaded the Foundation Factory module to accompany the book. It is not expensive and allows you to print the patterns with seam allowances, numbering, etc. You could even change the size of the blocks if you liked, with this.

    It is available at www.quiltpro.com, in download or CD version.

    Celine, to answer your earlier question, the book does not discuss assembly of the quilt. You can see how I did mine in sections on my blog, www.nickersmarie.blogspot.com. There are a number of posts showing the sections and close ups of the free motion quilting.

    Have fun!!!

    Nicky- your quilt turned out so GREAT!!! i love it. I am so excited to get mine put together- it's not going to be until January- but i have a plan & everything ready- i have to finish my 2 wool quilts first though & my daughter would really really like a tree skirt for christmas- so, i'm not even thinking about the stars for now- but when my sewing group meets in January we decided we would get together & work on what ever project we want to finish up- i was going to start a bargello- but decided to do my star quilt first...that gives me a few weeks to look at all of yours as they get posted & enjoy the show.
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy
