    I think I will try to use all the solid muslin backgrounds in one quilt top and the "odds" into another top.

    I don't have enough of the just the orange but I think if the "odds" are all ones with colors in the corners and backgrounds they will end up blending together...or at least I'm hoping this will work out that way ... if not, oh well, I've altered my plans many times before (plan? what plan???)

    Thanks for the great comments on the "mainly 30's" theme.


    --- On the CD in the book, I think a lot of people (me included) were a little misled by thinking it was a CD of the patterns to print out and became disappointed to find out it was just a CD of her techniques. After watching it though, I was glad I took the time to watch it as I learned a few pointers that have helped me out.

    My very darling hubby tore my book apart for me and we put it into a 3 ring binder. I copy a pattern and then decide what colors I want to use. I write the colors in all the proper spots on the first copy and then make 4 copies of it to sew on. I actually make a copy of the "fabric cut-out" page too so I can write my color choices on it. I think it helps me to not get confused as to what to cut / use.

    Love the center on your block. I still haven't had my book taken apart. Perhaps I shall get caught up this weekend. For now it's quilting Quilts of Valor.

    I really like that blue block, and the different values of the blues!

    Lookin' GOOD Newbee!!

    Seeing your blocks like that has given me a different perspective on something. I have been leaving all the colored corners off because I wasn't going to use sashing. However, it almost serves as a relief to the eye. It gives the eye a place to focus and then move on. I will have to rethink what I am doing. So...what else is new? LOL

    Mema5, glad you're joining in. You could always jump in on whatever state we're on, then work in two directions.

    All those blocks are breath taking! Are you going to use all 50 in one quilt?

    I wasn't sure about the colored corners on some of them either. I decided to put them all on and see how they look when I lay the quilt out when they are all finished. If I don't like them I will cut them off and replace them with my background fabric. I found a sashing fabric I love. Of course it is last years fabric and they don't have any more. I am working on finding out the manufacturer and name so I can search the internet for it. It is stuck in my head and now nothing else will do. I have checked all the LQS and none of them have it. I went to 5 shops today. There is one more shop about an hour away I haven't been to. As soon as I find out the manufacturer I will call them.

    I hear you; Georgia is partially constructed and Hawaii not even started. And also need to get a quilt on the longarm. However, I think this afternoon I shall get caught up with my stars. And a rainy day is a good day to sew.
    Hope everyone has their clock set forward.

    Boy do I hate time change. Messes me all up. Well here is Hawaii and my first 12. They don't look too bad together. They are not in order because I laid them out one way and took the picture sideways but you get the drift.

    If it's Sunday, it must be Hawaii!

    My interpretation of the Hawaii block, without corners, and a wall hanging I made with 4 blocks from the original pattern.
