    Moonwork, I think your stars are really pretty and work well together. I'm not up on what a 30's quilt should look like though so can't respond to that part.

    Good eye, Judy. I was going to mention that I had done that, then forgot. I wanted the center to show up more.

    Perfect colors to represent Alaska. I love it. I MUST get started.

Not sure the colors will come through but they are blue/purples and the light background has a rich lavender color to it.

    I like the 30's blocks, but need to tell you that they did use solids, too, like bubblegum pink and more. I think if you go to ConnectingThreads.com, and look at their 30's fabrics, they have solids that were used. too. That's what I had to do.

    I love all of the blocks. They are all so different yet beautiful. I am working ahead because I am planning on doing the Dear Jane group on here and can't start yet because of software issues I am having . I am going to work on Connecticut tonight. I will have to set my stars aside for a few weeks to catch up on my Dear Jane later. I am really enjoying the stars. I am doing mine pretty much in batiks. Will post pictures when I get my cord back from my DD to plug my camera in.

    I just got my book today and watched the cd she sure does make it look easy. I have really never pp before with much success any suggestions would be appreciated. I think my background will be white with scrappy stars how do you think that would work out.

    You might want to try her pp method. It is pretty easy and goes smooth once you do a block. When joining sections, sew just outside the line. Usually, I don't trim the fabric on the outside of the block until I square it up. Others probably have some great tips. Good Luck!

    You have to order a CD with the printable blocks. Otherwise what you are doing is good. Have a blessed day!

    Newbee3 -- you can also take the book and get copies of the pages (4 of each page).

    My DH tore my pages out of the book and we 3 hole punched it into a binder so the pages lay flat for me to use.

    As for what I will do with the blocks... lol... most likely add them to my stack of other blocks that I look at and wonder what I'm going to do with them.

    newbee, moonwork is right on -- that will be the only way to guarantee your blocks points will line up. And it will save you so much time and eye strain! Good luck.

    Moonwork - your blocks are going to be so beautiful all together that you won't be able to stand putting them away in a box! We are going to have some spectacular quilts here.

    Newbee, you don't have a printer that you can take copies on? I don't mean scanning, I mean just copying?

    Pretty block Newbie! Everyone is doing such a great job and there is so much diversity in colors and fabrics that I am really loving this thread! I am totally bummed I have not yet even cut my fabric for my Arizona block - have been having long, hard nights with the baby and just haven't had the energy to tackle it. Not to worried about getting behind, more that I am just excited to see how the block turns out as it will be the first to feature the green fabrics I am using. Wish this darned baby would sleep so I can sew!!

    Looking forward to Sunday and seeing everyone's blocks posted! Keep up the great work everyone!

    Glad to see your work Newbee3. Each block has something different, yet they are all the same. One number follows the one before it- just one step at a time. Keep up the good work. I figure I'm making one decent size quilt and maybe a lap quilt or two from all these blocks.

    when i first bought my book i took it to a printer's shop- they cut the binding, put 3 holes in the pages, put them in a 3-ring binder- putting the cover of the book on the front of the binder- all for under $10---it was well worth it- now all i have to do is take out the page i need - put it on the copier- make 4 copies- replace the page- easy and inexpensive.
    boy- the blocks just keep getting better & better!
