    Patrice, one of my blocks is a combo CA/CO. I am making six extra blocks to make my quilt 7x8. By the way love yours and Judy's and thank you Judy for posting your Hawaiian wall hanging again. Gives people ideas.

    Thank you whitepine. I do not have a design wall as I have a very small sewing room. When I make a block it gets put away so when I lay them out together it is a surprise to me when they go together. LOL.

    well- i had a heck of a time this morning when i started out---machine issues---after much frustration i finally did get Georgia done---then went ahead and made Hawaii---which went much better than Georgia did---so i am again caught up- i really need to get into the quilting room & work on the quilt that is loaded- but after all of the sewing frustration this morning i'm almost afraid to---but
    all caught up on these & feeling ok about it--
    Georgia did not come out all to well- i took it apart 3 times & just made it worse & worse---after the 3rd time i decided it is what it is & i'm so over it! at least Hawaii came out pretty good & (cheered me up) some

    Everyones blocks are beautiful. I can't decide which one I like best. Mine is cut out but my machine is in the shop for a tune up. I am waiting on a part. It is killing me. I only have one machine. It has been 2 weeks. I went and got my old machine from my DD so I will be able to sew tonight. I think I am having withdrawl symptoms.

    What a great bunch of Hawaiis. The corners make it such a complex block, but I guess that appropriate for a very complex State. Judy, you went from fish to fowl.....love your new avatar.

    Here's a song to sew by. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BqZP...feature=fvwrel
    It's hard to believe that IZ died in 1997...seems like yesterday. The first 15 seconds sounds like something is wrong, but it just part of the introduction.

    The computer finally let me get my picture downloaded So here is my Hawaii. Can't wait to see them all. This block just lends itself to ocean blues. So the song is perfect as well. Katie

    Sorry Judy but most of us don't live in Arizona. Yesterday it was 63, today it was snowing. Please let summer come soon.

    Tomilu, beautiful block again.

    I know, it was a bit snippy of me, wasn't it? I went back to try and take it down, but the window for editing was gone. Sorry, all.

    I like this! I'm thinking of not doing those corners. Thanks for posting this and your other one. i find it difficult to see the star with those corners that are added.

    I just finished my Hawaii block. I like how it came out. I'm not sure if the fancy corners will match the rest of the quilt but I put them on anyway. I figured I could always remove them later if I don't like the way they look with the rest of the quilt.

    This is the first quilt I ever made. I have sewed my whole life but one day just decided to make a quilt. The owner of the LQS showed my how to paper piece in a 10 minute demo. I went home and looked at the video and made the quilt. There are 64 squares in it. It is either Oklahoma or Oregon .

    So did I, and am having good success printing them on little kids writing paper. It's smaller that 8.5 by 11 but is big enough, and thin. Still having trouble finding time to finish and post pictures of my blocks. Maybe if I'd get off the Quilting Board and start sewing.........

    Meanmom, What a beautiful quilt. Makes me want to change the background of my stars.

    Here's Hawaii. It's supposed to be a sunset. Wish I had separated the oranges.
