    Here is my Michigan, all 128 pieces. Everyone, your stars are beautiful, just stunning. I think it is worth all the trouble. Youre right, I thought it would never end, and I certainly am glad it's over. ckcowl, your wall display is just breathtaking. What a quilt that will make!

    I've had to drop out for a while. I'm having major surgery on my foot, the first week of June. I'm in so many swaps and most need to be done before that time. Maybe, when I'm feeling better, this will be a nice project for me.

    Wow it is amazing how beautiful and unique all of the stars come out even though we are all doing the same patterns. GOing to clean up the kitchen and go hide in my sewing room for a while and try to start catching up. Iam on Kentucky and it looks like one of the quicker blocks. Maybe I can get 2 blocks finished today. I am sure something will interfere. My DH is talking about mulching the yard today. I hope my DH and DS can do it. All I hope to have to do is feed them. Loving the extra day off today.

    That would be me, at the very bottom of the rabbit hole, looking up !! I am still on one of the C states. Truly slower than molasses uphill in January. It is a gift really.

    I was supposed to squeeze in some sewing time last weekend but didn't and this weekend doesn't look too good either. We have finally been shamed enough by our neighbors' yards to get out the lawn mower and clippers and try to make some semblance of presentability in our yard. We will see if I can squeeze in some time today, if not, I may start using baby's afternoon nap time to get into the sewing room. I can't stay on the C States forever!!

    Still here, still loving all the beautiful blocks - just dragging my behind (which I am proud to say thanks to my new early morning paper route, is 13 pounds smaller than it was on 5/7!)

    Happy Memorial Day everyone!

    I admire all you gals who have so much going on and still keep up or even just follow along. Kids, jobs, surgery, life. My life is pretty non-eventful and I still have trouble. After retirement, I guess Parkinson's law takes hold and "Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion." (I had to look up the correct wording. ) Happy Memorial Day...after a few days of wonderful sun, we're back to drizzle here on the Olympic Peninula of Washingon.

    I am doing the postage stamp exchange and was working on cutting those today. I have my fat quarters ( most of them are cut up some) organized by color. I am cutting one color at a time so I make sure to get them all. I am ashamed to say that I have 45 different greens. There are a lot more pinks and blues than that but I haven't cut them yet. I think I need to stay out of the LQS for a while.

    I finally finished Kentucky and have Louisiana half way finished. I am hoping to catch up soon. I am behind on other projects too. I will try to post my pictures soon.

    Good morning ladies. Beautiful stars already. Patrice, wow, so vivid. I would like to help you with your pics but don't really know what to tell you. They say they didn't change anything but I know they did. Instead of going to advanced try using the tree above quick reply.

    Here is my #23 Minnisota. I like this one.

    They aren't this weeks stars but I have been busy. I am almost caught up. Here are Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, and Massachusetts. I have Michigan about half finished. I hope to catch up this week.
    The stars this week are all beautiful. Keep up the good work.

    Beautiful stars everyone. KLgreene, I think I recognize that brown with black spots. It goes with so many things.
    Here is another Minnesota. I embellished it a bit and wished I hadn't.

    And a song to sew by this week: The "Ballad of Paul and Sheila," a tribute to Minnesotan politician and activist Paul Wellstone and his wife Sheila. Mason Jennings sings, "Hey Senator, I wanna say, all the things you fought for did not die here today". They died in a small plane crash about 10 years ago.

    You're right white pine, it's the same fabric, mine are small pieces, but look at the color of your picture compared to mine. Yours is like right on. I got a new camera last summer, and I have not been happy with the colors at all.

    All the stars are beautiful!
