    Nicky, Very pretty scrappy.
    PokerDiva, Mine looks fixed too. The 'view first unread' has reappeared for the first time in a long time. Yay!

    Did you see this?

    I have the book and the applique material, just looking for the perfect colors to go with it.
    This is on my bucket list, along with another quilt in his book.

    I just realized that the gray fabric that you used in this block I used in a quilt for my daughter.
    I keep spotting fabrics that others own that I have used. It's fun to see how others use the same fabrics.

    I don't have it on the bar when I open. I copied and sent to Patrice your picture with the words circled, maybe she can get it permanently fixed.

    Well, I do think I am fixed. I know I have been missing things. I have my fingers crossed.

    Paintmejudy I have seem pictures similar to the quilt you showed. THat is beautiful. Harmonic convergence quilts make a great background for applique. I want to applique something on mine. I am on spring break next week, I will try to post a tutorial then. I still want to do a curve one.

    That quilt with the flowers was one I just stumbled on, when I was trying to find the book online. I think it was from someone's blog. I'm not exactly sure what I am going to do, going to wait and see what else he gives patterns for in his book.

    Thanks!! Everyone! Seeing all of your beautiful stars was my biggest incentive. I thank you for sharing! I spent almost every evening watching tv and sewing. All these were pieced on my Singer 15-90 in treadle.

    The girls in my small group went shop hopping today and I came home with numerous FQs for my blocks. Now to pick out next week's fabrics. Looking forward to seeing everyone's tomorrow.

    I finished my Indiana block on retreat. I don't like the one in the book at all. I like mine better but it sure isn't one of my favorites. It is kinda weird looking. It seems to be kinda disjointed. I will post on Sunday.

    Hello Mona Lisa,

    I wasn't sure if your message was for me, but I'll respond to it since I complete about 4-6 of the Star blocks a week depending on what other things I have going on. So I am probably way ahead of most of the members of this post.

    I'm retired (2 yrs now) and have time to enjoy the things I love doing. PP is my new love or is it an obsession? I want to finish these Star blocks so I can put them together for a quilt for my bed. I find it very relaxing to do these blocks. I also participate in a Round Robin, 2 BOM at my local quilt store and 2 BOM online, in addition to working in my vegetable garden and with my roses (I have about 15 different rose bushes). I also do volunteer indexing of records for 2 online family tree sites. So I guess you can say, I like to stay busy.

    I hope no one is upset or offended by my posting my completed blocks because that isn't my intent. I only want to share what I have completed.

    I'm not offended just curious. I say GOOD for you. I have recently
    become a widow and I need to get back into a routine.

    Thank you for responding. So sorry for your loss. I hope things go well for you. I'm sure you have the love & support of your family & friends, but you also have that with this group. Keeping you in my prayers.

    Boy, Patricia Faye -- I'm thinking of begging for some southern hospitality and send you my blocks to catch me up....Work has been overwhelming lately and I am drained when I come home so my blocks have sat on the table collecting dust bunnies. Since they are for "me" I guess there's no time crunch and they'll get done when I get to them.

    I really enjoy seeing all the blocks -- it's a nice highlight of the day

    moonwork42029, I worked over 30 yrs in the financial industry & had little time for me, so I completely understand about being drained after a day at work. I have LOTS of ME TIME now. Look what you have to look forward to!

    Here are the blocks I completed this week:
    (Row 1) Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri (Row 2) Montana, Nebraska, Nevada

    My favorite is Minnesota.

    well i finally finished my Illinois block---so i can start my Indiana in the morning- it was a busy week- but decided i really didn't want to fall behind so put that first today
    far from perfect- took it apart 3 times & decided i'm making it worse---so it is what it is.
    it's the first one of my (grouping) that is red/white & blue- i really like this one- wish i had done a better job of it...anyhow- it's done- moving forward

    I love your colors & you did do a good job on it. I struggled with the Illinois block too. Some of the blocks are more challenging than others : )
