    thank you both for your comments and encouragement, I appreciate it. Just have to keep going forward! Can always change out the few green stars that I have already made.

    Moonwork, great fussy cutting on Colorado. You're setting the bar awfully high.

    Ckcowl, definitely starry night. Beautiful.

    WOW... these blocks are amazing. Great Job Everyone. I really can't say I like one more than another. They are all BEAUTIFUL! OK, back to the machine to crank out another one.

    Thanks Whitepine! I am going to keep fiddling because the colors look so much more vibrant in real life (could also be my monitor settings I guess).

    KGreene your block was also very pretty - that purple-y color sings against the other colors you chose. CK I am liking what you did with Connecticut too. I can't wait to catch up to y'all!

    Love the contrast in your block; very nice. The weather is looking better for our retreat. I head up there tomorrow. DH says if the temps are not high enough to suit him, then he insists he is driving me up there. What a valentine!!!!

    I don't think you can make a mistake on this project. I have seen many photos of these quilts on the Carol Doak Yahoo Group. They look great whether you have a fabric theme or not!

    I am doing 50 Fab Stars, the Farmers Wife Sampler, the 2012 BOM here, and finishing the 2011 BOM House quilt, and have not purchased any fabric to speak of except a FQ here and there. Yes!

    Hello everyone! So glad I saw this posting. I just received the Carol Doak book from I Amazon. I have several of her other books too. I've recently taken up paper piecing and love it. I also belong to 3 other BOM's but I'm usually finished with those by the end of the 1st week. One block a week is a manageable goal. I love stars and these will make a beautiful quilt. I'l begin working on my blocks tomorrow & will post pictures as I complete them.

    Welcome Patricia.... I've never paper pieced before and I'm loving this project. Just wished I did not have to work full time.... It takes away from my sewing time. Can't wait to see your stars.

    Welcome, Patricia. A great group here.
    I finished a top for QOV at retreat yesterday, so I'm working on my blocks today. It is ranining, but warm enough not to freeze so the trip up to retreat will be ok.
    Was so tired I went to bed at 9pm, after Biggest Loser, lol. Have a blessed day, all.

    Welcome Patricia! It is great that you decided to jump in and join us. We are having a ball! That is a sweet little bundle you are holding in your avatar photo! Looking forward to seeing your blocks as they are completed. I am almost halfway done with my final "A" State block!
