    I haven't done my Iowa yet, but I did use three of my stars in a quilt that I made as a gift for a friend. I just finished that quilt tonight. My Kansas star is done and in another quilt (red, white, and grey quilt) that I showed earlier to all of you. I have one more major sewing project to do before getting back to PP these fun stars. So, again I will be falling behind.

Just got home (it's about a 2 1/2 hr drive) so wanted to post my blocks. Here are the blocks I finished last week. They are: Row 1: New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico,
    Row 2: New York, North Carolina, North Dakota. These were all pretty easy to complete. Hope everyone has a great week.

    Heehee, I think we need to put some weights on your hands to slow you down. Beautiful stars!!!

    I am so inspired by the choice of prints some of you have made - especially the florals. They are all fantastic.

    klgreene, Very nice Iowa and Kansas. I especially like Kansas.
    Patricia Faye, Very pretty blocks. I can't wait to get to some of them.
    Nicky, Great colors against that background.
    Vintagemotif, Those stars are really featured when there are only three.

    I'm way behind, but haven't lost interest. Life has gotten in the way a bit lately. I'll be back at them soon, I hope. In the meantime, great blocks everyone!

    I am really getting the itch to start putting my blocks together. But I want to wait to see what everyone else is going to do. I just can't decide on black white or cream. Has anyone started putting theres together? Post pics if you have.

    I have Iowa finished but haven't posted it. I haven't started Kansas. I have been extremely busy lately. I have a baby quilt that has to be finished by Sunday for the shower. I have made the mistake of letting people I work with know I sew and have been doing alterations on several prom dresses and an entire wedding party. I does pay well but it interrups what I want to do. THe LQS has been bugging m to teach a paper piecing class and a Spicy spiral table runner class. I have never taught a class. Not sure how I feel about this. I will have to decide soon as they will be putting out their schedule of their summer classes soon. Anyone on here teach classes. How do you like it? Oh well I need to go to bed. 5:15 seems to be coming earlier and earlier every morning.

    meanmom, I teach classes at my local LQS and I enjoy it. Be organized and not to many students at once and you will do great. It is not hard, I make samples for each of the steps in the process and have a completed to show and it helps in keeping things going. Worth doing.

    Quiltermomma thanks for the info. I am going to the LQS this morning to talk to them about what exactly they have in mind and the details. I do have a sample made but not all of the steps. I will make up my mind after talking to them. They want me to do a spicy spiral table runner, paper piecing and possible a bag (professional tote). I was surprised to hear that none of the employees at this LQS know how to paper piece. They all want me to teach them too. I do love paper piecing. I am heading there as soon as they open at 10:00. Right now I need to get to work on a baby quilt I need by tomorrow morning for a shower. I need to finish the binding, label and have a little bit of quilting to do. There is a big frog in the corner and I haven't decided how he needs to be quilted yet.

    Does anyone besides me think that Sundays keep coming faster and faster. Here is my KY. Of all the stars so far this is the one I think I could make a whole quilt of. This might be my favorite of MY blocks.

    My Old Kentucky Home
    Words and Music by: Stephen C. Foster


    The sun shines bright in the old Kentucky home
    'Tis summer, the people are gay;
    The corn top's ripe and the meadow's in the bloom,
    While the birds make music all the day;
    The young folks roll on the little cabin floor,
    All merry, all happy, and bright,
    By'n by hard times comes a-knocking at the door,
    Then my old Kentucky home, good night!
    Chorus

    Weep no more, my lady,
    Oh weep no more today!
    We will sing one song for the old Kentucky home,
    For the old Kentucky home far away.

    Florence, your Kentucky is outstanding and sure would make a beautiful quilt all the blocks the same.

    Mona Lisa, gorgeous colors in your Kentucky.

    Ok, I am sucked in on this one I think. Will try to figure my time out first. I had the book once, loaned it to a friend, she died and the family never returned it to me. Miss her much. So found one on Ebay and got it for $11 with the CD. I am excited about that. I have made the Montana star out of it when I was once in an old swap. So I found this thread and I would like to do this one. Next week may be my first star and as I see from the thread, we all start at the beginning of the book and working our way thru. I may pick up where we are at right now and then do two a week to get caught up, one from the beg and the current one. It works in theory.
