    Well, I just found this thread and have spent WAY to much time looking at all the WONDERFUL stars. Everyone is doing a awesome job. I am thinking about diving in and starting late and just starting with this weeks star and going from there but I'm not sure I have the time. Can you tell me on average how long it takes you to do each block? 3 hrs plus I thinking but I haven't done much PPings.

    Jeanne, please join us. Your guess as to time is pretty close. It all depends on the person but if you cut your fabric and get your papers ready one day and sew the next it seems to me to go faster. We have had people join all along the way. There are no rules here. Start where we are and catch up when you can and please post your stars as we all love to see them.

    WOW Nicky. Your Louisiana is beautiful. I love the flowers and the yellow makes it really pop. WTG!

    Yes please join. I think what takes me the longest is picking out the fabric. Im doing a scrappy. It can take me just an hour alone for picking out the fabric..It's the only part I hate. Im not always good at it.

    You will find they go faster the more you do. Picking out fabrics takes me longer than doing the block, lol. Please join us and start wherever you wish.

    I am still a few weeks behind, but since I took the Houses quilt blocks down from the design wall (ready to put Houses together!!) I now have room to show all my stars together, through Louisiana.

    That is beautiful. What are you using to hold your flannel up? I see clothes pins. I need some ideas. I have been throwing my flannel over a door and that just isn't big enough sometimes

    Thank you Patrice. We put four evenly spaced screws into the top front of our book case, on which I hung plastic coat hangers with clips; those hold up a white flannel sheet. If I ever want to get it out of the way, which is not often, I can hang the whole thing accordion style in my closet, even with blocks on it.

    Nicky your collection is amazing, colorful and totally eye-catching! A wonderful group of blocks!
    Patrice, I like your block - pretty floral there. Have a great time in Jamaica - you are a lucky duck and I hope you have a safe and wonderful trip!

    Nicky, Awesome bunch of stars! I love the floral in Louisiana and now I remember some of your others. I also especially like the last one in the same row.

    wvhill, that floral with the berries is sure purty. Jamaica! My husband wants to go there so bad. He went with a bunch of guys during his college years (in the 60's) and wants to go back. I tell him that it just isn't going to be the same and maybe he should just keep his memories intact. Between Jamaican rum and Red Stripe, maybe his memories aren't all that clear. Don't tell him I said that. Have a fun trip.

    Wow Jamaica have fun. I am jealous. I have had 2 baby quilts to make in the last few weeks and am behind on my blocks. One baby quilt is finished and on its way the other just need borders and I hope to get it marked and layered tonight. I have a half day off on Thursday and I am hoping to be able to work on catching up then. I think I have 4 stars to make now. School will be out soon then I hope to have more time. It just seems like there is always so much to do.
    Everyones stars are so unique and pretty. I can't wait to finish.

    Jamaica, I wouldn't want to take my computer with me. Just enjoy your trip. And forget about everything at home.

    Very pretty, Florence! The center circle is perfect for the day of the Annular Eclipse. I am still two behind, hoping to finish Maine today.

    Very pretty, PokerDiva. It's amazing how many colors are in your focus fabric. Mine is done, finished tearing paper during TV last night, but haven't got a picture yet. Still on my first cup of coffee. Kind of a gray day today. Probably no eclipse here tonight.

    Minnesota Star Block

    I have lost which star we are suppose to be on. Or are we just working at our own pace?

    MonaLisa, Wow. Very striking. We're on Massachusetts this week, but hey, any stars are good to look at.
