    Idaho

    And here is my Idaho star. Everybody's star are so pretty, and it's so much fun seeing the different colors and backgrounds. I'm keeping to mybeige's for the back ground, but I do love the black background, but since I have 3 dogs and a cat, although I love black, it just wouldn't work in this household. But a little black like in my block will work well. Every time I make one of these stars I keep wondering how I'm going to quilt it......I'm not, I'm sending it out. There will be to much work into this that I would hate to ruin it. Happy sewing everyone!

    I swear, this is the only place I have trouble uploading pictures. If it has come up and this is a duplicate, sorry!!!! Well I see two posts, uploaded two pictures and nothing is here. I do not like this new QB. It takes longer to upload a picture than it does to make the entire block. You can delete, if it lets you, just edit your post and you can delete it. But don't delete it just because it's the wrong week, just post Idaho next week. At least you got to get your pictures up. I didn't and I'm very upset about it. Ever since this changed over, it takes me all day to post something. I may have to just watch everyone else and not bother posting any of my things.

    Thanks tomilu! I love doing these and I love seeing everyone else's, but I was just about ready to call it FINISH! I've posted tons and tons of pictures, but never have so much trouble as on here. So I'm still here for a while.!!! LOL

    Here is my Idaho. The floral is what started my color choices. I'm using it for sashing if it works.

    I am retired so have the time to do "extra" blocks & I love these. Here the ones I've completed thus far. I usually cut the fabric for about 10 blocks at one time so that is out of the way & I can spend the time sewing.

    Wow, what a beautiful bunch of Idaho blocks. MonaLisa, love the orange and turquoise. PokerDiva, that blue really pops. PaintMeJudy, love the graduation of colors in your batiks (even if it was Illinois, and I can't wait to hear the song). Tomilu, that floral sashing is beautiful and is really going to pull it together. PatriciaFaye, you are a sewing machine (I jokes). And any I've missed, really beautiful.

    Well, this song to sew by is a bit of a stretch for Idaho, but the singer, Rosalie Sorrels, folk singer, is from Idaho and Boise is mentioned. Written by Utah Phillips. Beautiful images.

    Your Illinois is so much nicer than the book. I'm not fond of many of her color choices, lol. Good job on all!

    Thank you so much! I'm using the fabric I have in my stash so sometimes I can't match her colors but so far they have still turned out nice.

    Love the floral. I'm trying to use a floral theme for all of mine. The dark blue is a favorite of mine too.

    Patricia Faye: In the grouping, what block is that in the upper left corner? It's really cute.

    I am actually in Idaho at the moment visiting hubby's parents. FIL is 93 this month, MIL just turned 86. It snowed just for us yesterday. I have only 10 stars completed, all with the same background. I promise I'll catchup when I get home to Texas. Today I'm going QS Shop Hopping with my Idaho sister.

    I have my block cut out but not assembled. I'm not sure when I will get to it. I have my quilt retreat this weekend and I have several things to sew for it. I plan on taking several blocks with me to work on during my free time. I am really looking forward to my retreat.
    Everyones blocks are so beautiful. Yes I agree with several of you. I don't like a lot of the color choices in the book, but I love what I am seeing here. Can't wait to get mine done. I have a baby quilt to get done as soon as I get home. The baby shower is April 22. I have the strips cut but nothing is sewed. Keep up the good work everyone.

    There is a fabric I have been lusting after for weeks. My LQS used it in a quilt and is out of it. It is a fabric from 2 years ago. I wanted it for my sashing in my star quilt. I have been searching the internet for 2 weeks for it. I finally found it and it arrived today. It is perfect. Once I get a certain fabric in my head nothing else will do.
