    I plan to start this quilt in January...needed to set myself a goal to get a few more UFOs done! I have my fabric chosen (got it for a different pattern, but like the idea of using it on this quilt better. Probably will need more background fabric...I can handle that.

    I've been though many pages on this thread and hope to get through them all before January and make notes on any problems/suggestions people had on certain blocks.

    I've been slowly working on these, but I think I'm going to start over. I did several with a white background but then tried one with a black background and I like it much better. I'm going to make enough white ones to finish a small quilt and then switch.

    Welcome all the newbies. Wow i love all of the blocks. You guys are are really getting this finished fast. Carriem I used all one fabric for my background and I think I used 6 yards. I am pretty sure I bought 7 yards and had a little left over that I used on my back. I had emailed Carol Doak to ask how much and they didn't know.
    Kael Love your blocks. I don't even recognize the last one done on black which one that is? Keep up the good work.

    Kaelyn--I will be sure to post when I am ready to start! I got a "flimsy" done this weekend. Now I have 3 quilts to quilt and one baby quilt to bind before I move onto the next UFO....

    Meanmom--thanks for the background info. I am going to make 2 quilts so will get 4 yards each of the two background fabrics I want to use.

    Thanks much! That last one was Arkansas. I wanted to fiddle with the coloring and made it for a block swap - I will admit to being loathe to part with it.

    Gee, if there is going to be a new group in the new year I will sign up too. I've had the book for awhile and really love the quilt.

    Sounds like fun. A bf is giving me the book and CD so I might 'tag' along. Plenty of fabric in stash to do it.

    I was actually thinking about finding out if there was interest in starting a new group soon. I'm glad to hear there is! I'd love to have a support group for this massive project.

    yes, mostly batiks. I have several dozen batik FQ's that I found on ebay very reasonably a while ago, so this is a stash buster!
