    All stars are beautiful again this week. Judy the color choices you made in the center make the block look so different. QuilterMomma, welcome. I think your idea of starting where we are and catching up when you can is a good idea. We have several people who got started late. Can't wait to see you first star.

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.
    I'm with you on this one Quiltermomma...I bought this book and cd back when this thread started and seems like health and family got a little heavy for me. Now, depression and the ceiling seems to had fallen in on me and I neeeed something to keep mind and body busy. Something I don't have to mail in or have a dealine for. SO, this may be my nitch to gt me back into the sewing swing of things. I love the stars I've seen so far and with all of the fabric I have, Good Lord I could go thru this book 4 times if needed!! Prayers needed while I give it a try. Starting one day this week. Have to clear up the sewing area...;-)
    Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in this I am truely blessed!

    Kentucky

    I kept up easily this week, so hope I continue too. Here is my Kentucky Star. FYI, as of April 4, Carol Doak has HER tutorial on her web site. And it is so much easier than the way I first learned. I've gotten enough confidence that I'm working on a miniature lone star PP, diamond size is 1/2". I could never had done this if I hadn't learned Carol's way of PP. So I'm real thankful this group started.

    Well here is Kentucky.

    Beautiful Kentuckys ladies. Mine's almost ready, hopfully tomorrow. And yes, PokerDiva, I agree that Sundays are coming quicker, especially with some good weather finally hitting the pacific northwest and being able to get out into the garden.

    Welcome MommaK and QuilterMomma. Glad you're joining the star struck. I love your avatar MommaK.

    Song(s) to sew by this week...Judy, I don't know why but I didn't even think of My Old Kentucky Home. I guess I didn't think long because I had another in mind. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdDwm3QIwfg

    Good morning everyone! Here are the 6 blocks I completed last week. Only 10 left to complete & then I'll begin working on putting it together. I'm still thinking about what to do about the sashing.

    Row 1: Ohio, Oklahoma & Oregon (Ohio & Oregon are my favorites)
    Row 2: Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, & South Dakota

    Welcome MommaK and Quiltermomma. Don't pressure yourselves to catch up. This is a fun group. MommaK I just saw you in another group I am a member of. Welcome there too. Wow the blocks are so beautiful again this week. I am now 2 weeks behind. Pokerdiva the center of yours almost looks like it is going to pop off of the screen. I hope to catch up soon. I finished a baby quilt this morning at 1:00 AM that was for a shower today and need to have another one finished by May 18th. I have fabric that is all that is finished. As soon as I work out the design I will start. I am going to try to take a day off of work this week to play catch up with things. I agree the Sundays keep coming faster and faster.
    The LQS has been bugging me to teach a class for a while. I caved yesterday and am teaching a class for the spicy spiral table runner In June and a paper piecing class sometime this summer, pattern and project still to be determined. I have never taught a class before. Hope it goes ok. We scheduled my class the day that my favorite teacher works in case I tun into a problem.
    Well off to my sewing room to figure out the design of the baby quilt. Happy sewing to everyone.
    Pat

    Ckcowl, your Kentucky is so pretty. Love the colors.

    I'm going to make a quilt for our king-size bed. I guess I will need more blocks! What are the 6 alternate blocks? I read through the book but didn't see a reference to it. Can you explain? I think it will be beautiful too!

    Patricia, in the front of the book it shows how to put parts of different blocks together to make a new block. That is what I am doing. Example....Here is my combination of California and Colorado...and Arizona and Idaho.....

    Just checking in to see everyone's handiwork. Love the Kansas stars - Poker D's center really has pop and just grabs your eye, but they are all beautiful.

    After nearly what, 4 or 6, weeks of absence I finally made it back into my sewing room this weekend. I finished my California block (will post later today) and even though the center was off, I decided to set it aside and call it done and move on. Went to start cutting Colorado only to realize I returned the library book without copying the pages that included the cutting charts for each block - Whoops! So I just ordered a copy off of Amazon. While I was sewing this weekend I also put together a UFO top I have been sitting on for a year or so.

    Productive time and I am glad I am not the only one behind. Look at it this way: those of us who are behind will just keep you oohing and ahhing that much longer!

    Have a great week everyone!!

    Patricia those blocks are so lovely - I like the contrast and can not wait to see what you come up with for setting it and putting them together! You are like sewing lighting - Ka Chow!!!

    I absolutely LOVE these blocks and the colors are fabulous!! I'm cleaning and doing laundry today, I'm hoping to start my stars after dinner. I thought I would go ahead and start on Kansas and go backwards to catch up. Then each week keep on with the order everyone else is in. Well sounds good anyway!
    Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in this I am truely blessed!

    I got my book on Ebay for $11, is in the mail as I type right now. I will pick up some more papers tongiht at the quilt shop so I have them on hand when we start. Will be watching the pretty stars shine here while I wait. I am pulling my batiks out and going to use a main background color on all of them and the rest different. I think that will work for me. thank you for welcoming me aboard.
