    [QUOTE=DawnFurlong;4998254]I am off cycle with everyone else, as I am enrolled in a paper piecing club at my LQS. I did start the Colorado block at the same time as everyone else did, but then didn't finish it until a week later. Also finished up my Connecticut block this past weekend. And - Delaware was where I started with my local class.


    You are doing quite well, Dawn. Thanks for sharing.

    [QUOTE=DawnFurlong;4998254]I LOVE looking at everyone's blocks! It is amazing how different the same block can be with different colors. I am finding that to be the hardest part of this - choosing colors.]

    Dawn, Sometimes I think I spend as much time looking at colors as I do sewing the block.... I Love your blocks!

    Thank you for the encouragement tomilu and SheriR! I am really liking paper piecing. I thought I might not like it since it is a slower process - but I actually really like the accuracy of it. Will be happy when I quit nipping off tips (it's hit and miss, though I have mostly figured out why it was happening). Liquid stitch - gotta love it!

    I have to say I spend A LOT of time looking at everyone else's blocks for guidance (plus they are so pretty). Love that everyone posts pictures. So helpful!

    I agree! I haven't even attempted fussy cutting yet. I was going to but with the batiks I am using it would mean too much wasted fabric - I just can't bring myself to do it. I like the colors in your block as well, nice work!

    Wonderful looking Colorado... fussy cutting can be time consuming and aggravating but it is so worth it in the end.

    Y'all are so sweet, thanks tomilu, mimm, moon, and Dawn. I actually nearly posted after tomilu that I'm so tired of fussy cutting. I can't seem to stop myself...lolol If there's a pattern in my fabric, I HAVE to match it up. Picking colors is just as bad. I told my hubby I need to put all my fabrics in a bag and just draw it randomly, slap it down and be happy with the star. My process would be a whole lot faster IF I could.

    I'm up to date so far. During the week, I don't get on line as much as I'd like but I'm still here and will post Florida on Sunday. This has been such a great experience and learning so much. Thank you, Pokerdiva, for hosting.

    Thanks, I enjoy making them. I plan on using the blocks to make a quilt for my extra tall 14 year old nephew.

    I really like that! The red and blue in the middle look like they belong there together!

    Here is my Connecticut star. I have been working on the quilt that has the three stars, Kansas, Ohio, and Delaware (the stars that I posted)this week. Once I get that quilt done, I hope to work on all the stars from Alabama through Colorado. I don't think I will redo Delaware, or for that matter Kansas and Ohio. Those stars will be in one quilt and the rest of the stars will just be in another quilt or maybe two. I noticed that this star still has the red and white look; hopefully my next stars are with different colors.

    I have been stalking you all. I don't have the book yet, but I gotta get it! You all are SO creative and have inspired me to get going! One question: Would these stars look good in Civil War reproduction fabric?

    Welcome, please join us. I honestly believe these stars would look good in any fabric.

    Poker D I agree - I think these stars would look GREAT in Civil War repro fabrics. Renee are you a fan of Civil War fabrics? Have you been to the store Momma Made It in Chehalis? (I think it is in Chehalis...) Great selection of CW repro fabrics there.

    Great looking blocks ladies!

    I could absolutely kick myself - my baby took a two and a half hour nap yesterday and I did not spend it sewing! What a waste!!!
