    Thank you! Isn't it wonderful to see all the beautiful combinations this group has come up with? This is such a fun project!

    Here is my second Alaska (top picture). The first one I made (bottom picture) didn't have enough contrast, and I also decided to add a second constant fabric. So the top picture is my keeper, the middle pix shows how I think that I may assemble my blocks, with a dark sashing. And the bottom will go into my miscellaneous pile -- I use them for charity quilts, 12 blocks with sashing and borders per quilt.

    I just got my book in on Thursday.... had it spiral bound on Friday and started my Alabama block yesterday, late afternoon. (I must state... I got the book from Amazon and it came in deplorable condition. The box was a mess and the corner of the book was dented up very badly... never have I gotten a box from them in that condition. I let them know on Thursday night and even sent photos... Haven't heard a word back from them yet! Not very good customer service!)

    I hope to have my 1st block posted tonight.

    I must say they all the blocks I've seen have been very beautiful. Hope mine turns out 1/2 as good. I've never done paper piecing before and I'm liking it so far.

    OK, back to the machine!

    I received my book Friday, still trying to decide on colors. Then will be playing catch up. Love all the blocks so far can't wait to get started. I've only done a handfull of paper piecing blocks so this will be a challenge for me. It's the way we learn, right?

    Loving all the great stars so far! I still have to finish my Boom 6 blocks (only 1 more ) and then I can start.

    I actually love seeing all of the stars so it gives me more ideas of what I can do once I get the chance to do.

    I have to go to my office and "undecorate" from Christmas today and then maybe I can finish up my other project....wish me luck.

    Mona Lisa, your star is FAB!! Janey My, I have gotten many books and DVDs from Amazon and never had a problem. So sorry to hear you did. Did you get it directly from Amazon or from one of their vendors? Glad you can still use it and can't wait to see your star.

    I wouldn't recommend used dryer sheets. They are extremely flammable! At one time, I wanted to consider this, but tossed them all out after I read about this.

    I, too, have never ever had a problem with anything coming from Amazon. Perhaps the problem was with the postal service.

    week 2 Alaska block

    I was prepping for my week 2 block this morning-and House of Blues came on- i decided to stay in sewing room and work on the block while i listened to this week's program- 4 hours later it is done! it was kind of...long for one block-
    and my center is a tad off- which i don't get because the outer intersections went together correctly- the center was Way off at first (like over 1/4") so i took apart the center couple inches on each side of the center and tried again- the second time it came out better- still not right on but not as far off as the first time-so-i'm leaving it.
    glad that one is over-and i'm 'ahead' of my game for this week

    I like your fussy cut section! Thanks for sharing. I guess I'm pokey as I spend probably a day on each block from cutting to finish.

    All these blocks are absolutely fabulous. Can't stop my sewing to comment on each one, but just had to put this in. Nice job everyone. I really look forward to the ones yet to come and the coming weeks.

    PokerD- I am in love with that jazzy fabric - it looks great with the purple!
    Tomilu - the blue/yellow is a favorite color combo of mine, your is lovely!
    monalisa- I like the high contrast - it is very striking!
    Judy - I agree, the second block has some real zip to it. I love the fabrics you are working with!
    Ckcowl - I am lovin' the fussy cut, your block is very pretty!

    Great work ladies - I haven't even cut my Alaska yet but I hope to get it cut and started today. If I am really on my game, I may even get it posted before next weekend. haha!!

    Thank you, MM, looking forward to seeing yours. It is interesting to see how many of us are using blues in our blocks. I measured my background fabric, and I have almost 6 yards. I am pondering going to equilter to see if I can pick up a couple more yards. This fabric came out a couple of years ago.
