    PokerDiva, I like #2 because I like purple, but I like the 'inner star' that the white makes in #1. I also still love your focus fabric.

    Ladies! Beautiful blocks! PokerDiva I've said before I particularly LOVE yours. I wish I had thought to use my yardage of your focal to make these stars. I'm very behind. I'll admit only here (I think I over booked my LIFE :X ) My stars and my DearJane suffer..... I actually have squares bagged ready to sew. I'll do them. I promise.

    Thanks guys. Whitepine, love your block. Your blocks always look like a picture from a book. Good job.

    Thank you PD. I was just thinking to myself that I'm a slow learner because here we are on Maine, #19, and I just figured out how to line up a certain piece.

    I love everyones blocks. I am still behind. THe baby quilt is nearly quilted and I am working on the binding. I hope to finish quilting it tomorrow night. I made the Maine block for one of my blocks for my guild. It is pretty but will use better colors for my block for here. I will try to post it tomorrow. For the guild I had to work with certain fabrics. I hope to get caught up over the next 2 weeks. Maine is the block I have been really anxious to do.

    Maine

    Here's my Maine. I used scrappy batiks and didn't put them in order just pulled the next one and I think it turned out real nice. Also took a picture of the rest of my blocks so far.

    Very pretty, White Pine! I am catching up after two weeks out of town. I am almost done with Kentucky.

    Florence, I like them both, but especially the purple one.

    KL, your scrappy batik looks great! And all your blocks go very well together.

    They do, don't they? They are also so beautifully pressed and even.

    I love the scrappy Maine blocks. Katie yours is lovely. The group photo of your blocks is great, Nicky is right they go beautifully together!

    Thanks for your comments ladies. I particularly like my Colorado, but it sticks out like a sore thumb on the design wall next to the others. I am thinking a hot quilt and a cold quilt but who knows. At this point, I should only be thinking of Connecticut!

    Here is the Maine block I made for my guild exchange. I had certain 5" squares of fabric I had to use. I still need to make mine for this group.

    What fabric was the one you had to use. I like the fabric that you used in your points. I am too scaredy cat to use that kind of fabric. You did a good job.

    Wow they are all great! I'm afraid also that "life" has a fatal choke hold on my sewing at this point. I was behind but I know I won't be catching up for awhile.

    My 82 yr old Dad had a stroke on Friday afternoon and I'm on about 12 hrs sleep total since then (I needed something nice to look at to relax tonight) and we brought him home to our house at around 7:30 tonight. He'll be with us for ??? He is doing great but there is no rush for him to go back to his house. He lives alone and was been fully independent but this shook us all up. Sooooo no sewing for awhile for me.

    I'll be checking in though and seeing your pretties.

    Thanks!

    Meanmom - that is some really zippy fabric in that block. I can't wait to see what your Maine looks like for our group!

    Moonwork: I am sorry to hear about your dad but certainly glad he is doing better. Family comes first, right? Best wishes to your dad for a speedy recovery!

    Moonwork, so sorry about your dad. We will all be here waiting for your return. Take care of him and yourself. That is the most important thing.

    Awesome blocks ladies. I am slow again, had the hand surgery on the 25th of April, was doing alright then last weekend, after coming back home from sewing which was pushing my hand with the threading from the embroidery crazy patches I am doing, I was setting my machine back up to continue on and moved it with the surgical hand and ouch, hurt it, but I kept pushing on and did the binding on the baby quilt that needed to be done, pushed the hand even harder, then went to airport to get daughter and turned on the wrong way on a one way and did a fast U turn, yep, hurt hand again. so now not using it very much, swollen and very sore. Yep, I am a goof girl. So I have not started my stars yet. I have gotten my paper, carol doaks pp paper, the cd and printed out the patterns to get going, but have to wait yet till hand better.

    The Maine one looks cool in those scrappy batiks. Love it much. I think you ladies are doing an awesome job on your stars. I will get there.

    Klgreene, Your scrappy batiks turned out VERY nice. I think I even recognize a few of them. I also like your group backgrounds, having different ones but still in the same tones.

    Moonwork, Hope your Dad is doing better. MadMimm is right, family is first....and "life" is in charge.

    QuilterMomma, Ouch. Isn't it crazy how we push and push.

    QuilterMomma, you are as bad as I am. I have tendenitis in my right arm. Doctor said the only thing to do is not use it for about 2 weeks. I told him fat chance. Somedays are worse then others but keep plugging along. Yours is definately worse than mine so maybe you should follow those orders from the doctor.

    Moonwork so sorry to hear about your dad. Yes family comes first. I hope he has a speedy recovery. He is in my prayers.
    Pokerdiva all of my fabrics in the points were what I had to use in my block. Everything but the background fabric. I wanted something interesting but it had to work with 5 inch squares. I think the fabric I have chosen for my maine block is all bright batiks. I cant remember but I think they are all different. I have all of my blocks cut out, I am just a few behind on assembly. I am putting the binding on the baby quilt and need to finish a table runner that is for mothers day. The t-shirt quilt is ready to layer and quilt. Hope to work on the stars next week.
