    [QUOTE=janey39quilts It's been some time since I posted. Broke camera, cut finger, traveled, etc. But I have kept up and this will prove it. Have enjoyed everyone's work so here is mine from Hawaii on.[/QUOTE]
    You have done a fantastic job, Janie. I hope to catch up soon.

    Thanks guys. Love the other stars too. Judy don't you think it is bad enough that I am a Diva do you really think I am a Drama Queen too. Are you doing Michigan?

    Michigan

    Here is my Michigan, a couple burps, and this was one I did just a quarter at a time. Not sure why other than this isn't my favorite block.

    Great new blocks, especially the Michigans. I was born and raised there too PokerDiva, in the Lansing area, although my heart is in the UP.

    There is so much good music from Michigan that I didn't even know where to begin. This is to all you folks from Michigan (past & present). Songs to sew by:

    To celebrate the glory days of the auto industry: Hot Rod Lincoln
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9QpD...ature=youtu.be
    To celebrate the world of Motown, Martha & the Vandellas:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdvITn5cAVc
    To celebrate a music icon from Michigan, Stevie Wonder:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ul7X5js1vE
    To take notice of a city, Saginaw:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tbrLDA18C4
    To remember a tragedy on the greatest lake in the world (I love this song & it has great pictures):

    Here's autumn in Michigan . Definitely not my favorite either. I wanted it to be but I thought it would never end. Can you imagine making a quilt of this block. I don't know what I'll do where we get to South Carolina. Scream, I guess.

    Katie, I don't see any burps in yours. Very pretty. Whitepine, yes that does look like fall or even native american. And yes the block was a pain but they are turning out very nice. I was born in Ferndale MI but parents moved me to OR when I was ten.

    White pice, I love those colors, it does look Native American... which is my decor.

Size:  649.2 KBi really liked making my Michigan star...thinking about it was a bit intimidating---but once i sat down to do it it really went smoothly. after i finished it i went ahead & made one of my (6) alternative blocks---this one is Alabama/Delaware...i really like that one too.
    and as usual...WOW! they are all looking so great! Pokerdiva---I LOVE YOUR BACKGROUND! your block is STUNNING! i love them all---just like every week

    Ck, both your blocks are beautiful and your wall of blocks are terrific. I know I keep saying it but it is true.....everyone is going to have a beautiful quilt in the end.

    Queen of the Dramatic Stars is a compliment, as it would not have been if I called you a Drama Queen
    And no, not doing Michigan. Still need to get Maryland done. Undecided if doing Massachusetts. Falling farther and farther down the rabbit hole.

    Those are absolutely gorgeous. I love the black background. But not in a household with two pomeranians who shed like crazy, a mutt and a cat.

    Paintmejudy, I am in the rabbit hole with you. I am on Kentucky. I just finished a baby quilt for a shower today and hung it on the line to dry at 3:00. The party is at 5:00. Nothing like cutting it close on time. I will hopefully sew on Kentucky tomorrow. Then on to the others. Michigan looks time consuming. I am teaching a class on June 21st that I need to make the sample for. It is the Spicy Spiral table runner. I borrowed the one I made for my mom for a temporary sample. I have never taught a class before. I am also teaching a paper piecing class sometime. we haven't scheduled it yet.
    Another week of beautiful blocks. I haven't heard from several people lately, I hope they haven't dropped out. I look forward to seeing all of the blocks every week.
