    My DD's birthday is Christmas Eve, my DS's birthday is Jan. 5 and my birthday is also in Jan. Hope your hubby pays attention and gets you that book. We would love to have you join and Happy Birthday to you.


    QUOTE=Mad Mimm;4797190]FYI, Carol Doak's publishing co started adding a CD with printable foundations after much negative customer feedback. Lots of people bought her older publications thinking the CDs would have the patterns and complained when they did not and they had to fork over extra money for the companion CD. So now they are included with her more recent publications.

    I borrowed this book from the library and have to return it this week. I did not get a chance to work out of it, as I was busy with presents, etc. So this is just the motivation I need to buy the book and join in the fray. Right now, I will put myself down as a maybe - I have to make sure I can get the book and fabric as a birthday present from my hubby. (My bday is at the very beginning of January, so I'll PM when I know for sure.)

    What fun and what a great idea!!!![/QUOTE]

Andwe won't go into neices and nepews and all their kids. Thank goodness I put them on a calendar or I would have a real hard time keeping track. LOL

    WOW! We have that same kind of situation in April. Our daughter, and both sons were born in April. 7th, 12th and 21st. My brother is the 19th. My sister is the 26th. My sister-in-law is the 29th. We use to have a big party and put all of the names on a BIG cake.

    Blessings!

    I am excited about this, am thinking of posting on Carol's board asking advice for choosing colors. I want to do the blocks but do not have time to pick individual colors each week. Have been reading advice from here also. Looking forward to starting.

    I've had my book for several years so it didn't include the pattern CD. However, because it was older and I'd used it quite a bit, I found it quite easy to rip pages out...chatted with a friend on the phone, ripped all the pages and straightened then all with my paper cutter and walla! They are perfect and ready for the page protectors and small binder. I could spend the money, but would rather buy fabric and tools! I think that to tie them all together, I will use one fabric for the background with all of the stars and then will just play with pretty fabrics!

    Have had this book for several years as well as the 40 ieced blocks and (shame on me) have not made a single one. This thread has given me a surge of ideas and plan to follow thru. My favorite color is blue so I think it will be the dominating color.

    Great idea. Let us know what she says. I, too, am thinking of one background color. Can't decide betweeen light or dark. I'm thinking light would give more color options, but I like the idea of black for a night sky. My book still hasn't arrived so I'm hoping for more ideas then.

    Happy birthday to your DD too. My DD will be 46. She was not suppose to live past teen years. She was also never suppose to be able to have children and she has an 18 year old son now so we are happy to celebrate all of her birthdays.

    REMINDER: I just wanted to remind those who are printing directly from the book not to forget about adding the 1/4" seam allowance. Of course you will only forget once I am sure because you will be so mad you won't forget again.

    You can copy from the book, just remember to add seam lines on the outer edges and check to see your computer copied at the correct size. I prefer to print from CDs and not mess with the scanner. Just my preference.

    I don't use the scanner, just the copy function and they always turn out fine on my printer.

    My book arrived in the post yesterday. Can't wait to get started (even though I live in Ireland so don't really know much about any of the states). Am going to go through my fabrics over Christmas as want to use up what I have first.

    Linda, you don't have to know anything about the states. That is just a name she gave the stars. No correlation. She also has a book of stars named after countries. Maybe we should do that one next year. I can't wait to get stated either. Not long now.

    My book arrived yesterday too!!! Wrapped it up and tucked it under the tree. Merry Christmas to me. last summer I bought a half yard bundle of patriotic fabrics. I think they'll work nicely. With maybe a Muslin-ish base. What do you think? Ooo I will take a pic of them and show all y'all.

    Not sure I can keep up with getting one a week done, but will give it a try. And maybe by the end of the year, I'll have figured out how to post pictures.

    Don't stress yourself out. Do them as you can. If you need help figuring out how to post a pic someone will help you. We want to see all the pretties.
