    I even got her paper for piecing I think that helps to I have tried the regular copy paper and it seems too stiff. That is why I don't take it to get copies, unless they would use my paper have not tried that yet.

    Is anyone here using an iPad? If so, have you pisted pics from it? Can't seem to get it to work. I will grab my laptop but think there must be a way, right?

    Yep, we're a talented group . We all deserve a pat on the back for our hard work so far.

    Thanks for the comments and suggestions on the 30's themes... I have been calling it "mainly 30's" so some artistic variations are allowed in the fabrics.

    Good morning, all. I agree, we are all doing just great. Today I hope to pick out the fabrics for Arkansas and get started. It's been a busy week; as you get older the days just fly by. Have a blessed day everyone.

    The iPad is recognized by the site as a "mobile device" and, as such, doesn't allow uploads. I have noticed this with both my iPhone and my iPad.

    I just started my first ever paper piecing block...it took many hours but it makes sense when you watch the carol doak DVD over and over. I am really excited to show my block but I have to sew the finished sections together which will have to wait until morning

    Love the way the center is a spiral. Love your colors. I am in the process on this block and vow I will have it up tomorrow. Am enjoying this so much and especially everyone's beautiful work. Thanks, Janet My

    I have had to put my stars aside for a week or 2. I am working on a Hoopsisters Goosetracks wall hanging. The last class was supposed to be last night but was cancelled because of an ice storm. I need to finish the border and assemble it so it doesn't become another UFO. I have been cutting out more stars while my embroidery machine runs. I cut out Georgia last night. I will be ready to sew California when I am able to get back to wok on it. The stars are addicting. I can hardly wait to see what the next one will look like when it is finished. Since it is icy here I guess I might have to sew all day.

    I finally get to join! Alabama star better late than never!

    I had to finish up a mystery quilt that was tough tough tough for me (a beginner). This is my first attempt at PP and I am loving it! Thanks for the support - I have learned a lot from following this thread so I was much more successful when I began. I think I will put the black and brown in every star and change up the other colors some. Hope I can catch up slowly over the next few weeks.

    Love your colors Jan.... Everyone has done such a great job with the colors. No matter if you are behind... I have all I can do to get one done a week. Working full time keeps me pretty busy and I'd much rather be working on these blocks. I've got them down to a science now and have an assembly line process. They seem to be going faster for me. I'll be going away in March for a week, so I will be behind for sure then. (That is if I can stay caught up till then)

    PokerDiva.... I think you have created a bunch of PP'ing monsters.... I really like doing PP. Before I started, I was very intimidated by them. Now I think I may be doing all my quilts this way. Thanks for the incentive push. I like doing new things and learning all the different ways of quilting. Next hurdle for me will be applique... that scares me to death. I can't hand sew to save my life.

    Where can you buy the CD with the printable blocks? I've searched the internet and can't find it.

    When I first started this journey, I thought I can do one block a week. It seemed so easy. Now I think, WOW, this is ONE BLOCK A WEEK!!! Hope I can keep up!!!

    Lots of pretties to look at today. Great job everyone. I finished my Arkansas block. Thought while I working on it that it was going to be my favorite as far as color. Reminded me of a peace rose. After it is complete I am not so sure. Very dissapointed in it. But it is done and on to the next.

    You did just super, girl. I find that if I sort of chain piece, doing a number in all sections and then on to the next number, it goes faster for me.
