    Ladies these blocks are really looking good! Sheri you are cracking me up - backwards and all the blocks you are making are looking great! I did not see the mistake either - and you wouldn't unless you were looking at another set of blocks or a picture of them.

    I really like the variety of colors and fabrics that are being used; it gives you such a wonderful array of possibilities.

    I cut my Arkansas block today and will get it started tonight. I am still FMQing away on that baby quilt but I don't want to get any further behind - especially since we are up to Colorado already! I am seeing everyone's California blocks and can't wait to get to that one so I better get on the ball!

    Enjoying the show ladies, keep it coming!

    I'm planning on doing 2 quilts... one with the dark and one light background. That's till I get to the end of this and decide otherwise. I was taking today with DH about it. He wants me to put them all together and hang it on the wall in our staircase area. I have 3 painting there now and will have no idea where I'm going to put them. I'll have time to think about that. Now the "How am I going to quilt it?" question is a Big Question. I have no idea yet.

    After looking at all the Colorado posted so far, I am really not liking the center on mine. I may need to make another. I still need 5 more extra blocks anyway. Hmmmmm. Yep keep an eye out later in the week.

    Okay so I am a doofus. I said I cut my Arkansas when, in fact, I am still on Arizona. I rushed down to my trusty machine the moment the children were in bed to begin piecing (very excited to see this color combo come together) and then what do you think? Yup, the machine is not working properly. My one and only sewing machine has feed dogs that apparently are not hungry and won't feed (I posted a thread in the main section about it).

    Grrrr... is this the universe's way of telling me I need to spend more time on my housework???

    I'll keep you posted - push comes to shove, I will call my local quilty friend and borrow one of her eight machines from her. I think I finally understand why quilters have more than one sewing machine!!

    Newbie your blocks look so lovely together! MonaL your latest has also turned out beautifully.

    BTW: Looks like my machine is fine, I just forgot to take my stitch length off 0. What a silly twit!!! That is what I get for sewing late at night!

    Mona Lisa - love your Colorado block!! I have been playing it too safe with colors. Partly because I am trying to use up what I have, partly because picking colors is where I struggle the most.

    Attached is my Colorado block, and then a picture with the 2 blocks that I have done (Delaware and Colorado). I completed Delaware as my first block for a paper piecing club at my LQS.

    Little bit of trouble with matching up points on my Colorado block. I don't like to baste things, but I either need to get it worked out as to how to pin better - or start basting as Carol Doak recommended.

    Laughing is allowed here. I had noticed before on a few other blocks, a "strange" piece in the corner. Well, I discovered why they are there. I wasn't paying attention when placing the first pieces in each section and didn't get them to alternate right. Rather than do any over, I sewed them together wrong and added the missing corners. If this doesn't make sense, that's good. It means you did it right!! Name:  Colorado Reduced.jpg

    I tried really hard to come up with another song to sew by for Colorado, but what can beat John Denver. Maybe someone else come up with another one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWU8XWksg_0

    Whitepine, no better song than John Denver...it just makes me sad he's gone.

    As for your block. Just do the same thing to the other two corners, and no one will know the difference. Those new corners actually look pretty good. No laughing here. When I'm perfect then I'll laugh. I've got a long way to go!!!!

    Whitepine I can't even say I would have noticed those corners . The batiks in your block are beautiful!

    I don't think the backgrounds will all be the same running out of fabric and it is fabric from 2009 it will be from the same company and same colors just design will be different. I think it will be okay

    Nicky, that is a lovely block - that dark purple just pops. I noticed your location is Twain Harte - I ended up there one day to attend a craft festival (many years back) and thought it was the most charming town!

    Thank you Mimm, yes they still have the craft festival; in fact we went to it last summer. Twain Harte is very nice, and always a few degrees cooler than Sonora, because of the elevation. Another highlight is Twain Harte Pharmacy, which has a huge crafts section and is one of my favorite places to buy fabric!
