    Better late than never...

    Okay... so I couldn't decide on a color scheme. My husband was supposed to be laid off from work so I wasn't going to buy fabric. Husband got a job, I got batiks and now I am roaming around Delaware. Haven't been to the other states yet. I have done very little paper piecing so I wanted an easier block to start. Here goes nothing.

    I'm behind 2 weeks, I believe. But here are the pictures of the last 4 blocks I have made. They are Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, and Idaho. The last picture shows what I've made altogether.

    I love it. I am doing a scrappy quilt as well. Are you going to use sashing? I have no idea what color sashing to use. I am kinda leaning toward black

    HopetoQuilt - I think you chose some lovely fabrics. Your first block is lovely!
    Janey39 - OUCH!!! I am so sorry to hear about your finger - sounds painful and I don't blame you in the least for being twitchy about getting back into the sewing room!
    Judy I like the scrappy look of your blocks that is going to be a lovely quilt.
    Tomilu, I think Illinois is my favorite block so far - yours is very pretty.
    Poker D - WOW yours really grabbed my eye - the greens go so well with your focus fabric and the background fabric you chose really brings them all together.
    Patrice - that dark purple is so yummy and wow does it set off the star beautifully!

    Gorgeous blocks ladies!

    Ditto to all that Mad Mimm said, LOL!

    Got to get off my rear and get back in gear but I'm still hanging with the 30's.

    Love everyone's blocks! It is amazing that the same block looks so different depending on the fabric used!

    Here is my block for the week. As I watch the snow come down, I know the next block will get done quickly. My goodness, trying to do an attachment on here is like trying to get on the freeway at go home time.......

    OK vacation is over, princess just left...with her babies..(how rude!!). Now it's time to play catchup... My only problem...sewing machine is still getting her checkup. So guess what I did... Some of you know my paper piecing disasters, you'll be very proud of me, I finely watched Carol's How To CD!!! Now that I know what I'm doing tomorrow I will get my machine and I can start where I left off!! OH YEAH, I also cut my book up. Yes I did, just like some of y'all have. Rotary cut each page at the binding and put it all in a folder. I'm set, I'll spend some time today picking fabrics and cutting my pieces for my next bunch of stars. Next stop...GEORGIA!

    You are all such great inspirations. So many beautiful stars, I can't wait to get to work!

    Illinois

    Here's my Illinois. I might be gone a couple weeks,but I'll catch up. I have a few things that just have to be done. All this stuff in interfering with my quilting. But I'll be keeping an eye on you. If I'm lucky I can try and sneek a block in, but I'm not dropping out, will just have to catch up a little. And as usual you all have beautiful blocks. I love seeing all the same blocks in different colors and fabrics. Keep sewing

    Opps almost forgot the picture.

    Hope I only have one picture of Illinois coming thru. Trying to get this done to quickly and making to many mistake. If I have two pictures, the other was a block I made for a swap a year or so ago.

    You are right, one of Rhonda's blocks, I've done almost every blocks she designed. I'm going to be here at home, just have a bazillion things I have to get done. I usually like to sew the entire block at one time but may have to break down and just do a quarter a day and then I can keep up. And I don't work outside the home....I have no idea how all you girls that do work do it.

    Wow! I enjoy looking at these the way I enjoy watching hang gliders at the beach. Awed and amazed and not at all tempted to try it myself!
