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

    My favorite is Minnesota.

    Very nice color choices!!! Thanks for sharing.

    @ Patricia Faye -- I really think Nebraska is my fav of this group...it has such wonderful contrast yet is peaceful (if that makes sense).

    @ckcowl -- love the red, white & blue!

    Mona Lisa, My thoughts are with you. I hope your friends and family are near.

    Patricia Faye, What a beautiful bunch of stars in your sky.

    Ckcowl, I really like the reds and blues in your RW&B star. I think we need a new accronym: iiwii (it is what it is). I've certainly said that on a couple of mine.

    This is a McCall's pattern called Stars in My Garden. I am posting this for ideas and to show how they have used different backgrounds for their stars.

    Here's my Georgia. I'm very far behind, but vow to catch up. Everyone's stars are such inspiration to me, I almost wish I wasn't stuck in this color scheme, but I've done to many states now to change. Y'all are great!!

    SheriR, I love your color scheme. It's one of my favorites because the patterns show up so well. And because I like the colors.

    here is Indiana- it went together a bit better than Illinois
    my hubby said that's 'cause it just --goes everywhere
    he is the quilt police in our house---takes each star as it's finished & inspects it up close & critiques....but i guess when it's needed he's also my greatest fan so...i guess i will let him get away with this

    I really like Indiana. It's different and quirky! Enjoying everyone's work. I am still not back to speed with sewing, but will catch up. Will be out of town for two weeks and maybe then my hand will be normal. Miss the process and feel out of things, but with no quilt police, I will get 'em done when I get 'em done!

    Patricia Faye I love your blocks. I am not upset that you are so far ahead. I think I am jealous. I really like these stars and am anxious to see them all finished. I just love seeing how each one comes together.
    Ladies another group of beautiful stars. Each one is so different. I will post later. We had poker here last night and my company was here until 1:30 AM, I am being lazy this morning. My Indiana id upstairs in my sewing room. I'm too lazy to go up there. Indiana is not one of my favorites I feel like it is too jumbled up.

    You are right Janey, quirky is the word for Indiana. Everyones's blocks are beautiful. Tomilu, love that green background. I'll bet those subtle melon colors really show up in 'real life.'
    Here's a song to sew by this week. Indiana wants me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qD5UdXq-JLQ

    Oooo I love all your Indiana'a. I think it's quirky too but maybe I'll jump ahead and do it then work backwards.

    another week of wonderful blocks! Indiana is a quirky one---great word for it -- - still quite (becoming) in all of our different color-ways.
    I love the black starry fabric i've managed to use in some blocks---i will feel a real loss when it is all gone- i don't have much of it left- i try to use it in small doses to make it last and be in as many blocks as possible. i started out with just under 1/2 a yard-
    anyway----another week- 14 down! yea!!!
    great job all!!!

    Oooo...good one Nicky. Love your colors.
    I'm waiting for someone to do each of the triangles in a different color.

    Indiana

    Here is my Indiana, I did keep up! And hopefully I will continue to keep up. I better cut out a couple blocks at a time. It's the first of the month, first of the week, and tomorrow the 1940 census comes out, which is what is taking me away from my quilting at the moment.

    Very pretty block. I usually cut the fabric for 5-10 blocks so they are ready to sew. I guess that's my least fabric part about quilting...the cutting!

    I do indexing for Ancestry.com & FamilySearch. I'm excited that the 1940 Census is going to be available soon, but I'll also be busy indexing so I'm glad I'm ahead on my BOMs and the 50 Fab Stars. I sew during the day & then usually do the indexing in the evenings while my husband watches TV. I plan on doing more indexing during the day to help make more records available to others.

    That's what I've been doing, but unfortunately I've had some other things to do during the day, so quilting was put on the back burner for a little bit. I used to do all my cutting in the evening, but since I started Ancestry, I have to cut and sew during the day. I'll be trying to keep up with my blocks because I don't want to get behind.

    Here is my Indiana. I finally got around to going upstairs to get it. I know I am behind the times but I spent most of the day reading "The Hunger Games." A pretty good book.
