    I have the book "Quilts for Rosie - Paper Piecing Patterns from the '40s" by Carolyn Cullinan McCormick that I would like to do. I loved doing the stars but want to do something else too. There are 20 blocks and the Sampler Quilt can be completed in either 4" or 10" blocks. I bought the book last year through Amazon.com and since I've finished the stars I'm thinking about working on this next. I think this would be a good one for a BOM or week. I was trying to find out how to set it up like this one, but couldn't find the steps/procedure to recommend/volunteer to do it. I sent a PM to an administrator for help.

    What do you think? The book was about $20 - $25 but has everything you need (except the fabric, of course.) You may be able to get it even cheaper if you do some searching or a local library has it. The nice part is these are all paper pieced.

    All you have to do is PM Patrice and tell her what you want to do. She will ask you how you are going to word it. I am going to go see if I can find out anything about the book.

    I just went to Amazon. There was only one left in stock and it didn't really show what the blocks looked like. You would have to pick something that was readily available to everyone.

    MonaLisa I have been looking at compass patterns but haven't decided on one yet. I am up to date on my stars but I can't post pictures right now. Not sure what is going on but I cant seem to get my pictures to go from my camera to my computer. I think something is screwed up in iPhoto. I will get someone to help me next week. I am not good at computers. I just started my Dear Jane quilt this week. I have been wanting to make one for over a year. I look forward to seeing everyones blocks tomorrow.

    Very nice Patrice. Doesn't it make you feel like we have really accomplished something. We are now on the downhill slide.

    PokerDiva, Your block is definitely a celebration. Love it. Wvhill & Ckcowl....great Missouris. MonaLisa, Your North Dakota IS a beauty. Halfway through the stars, let's see, we must be in the Andromeda Galaxy. Either that or we must be nuts.Name:  Missiouri Reduced.jpg

    Missouri

    Here is my Missouri, everyones posted so far are so pretty. It just imazes me how different they all look with the different colors. These are going to be absolutely gorgeous quilts. I have to start laying mine out to see what colors I need to bring out more. Wish I had a large design wall, but instead, I lay them on my bed, but have to put the dogs out, or one could block could sneek away unwillingly. Looking forward to seeing the rest of your blocks. Katie

    Katie, your star is beautiful. I don't have a design wall either. Maybe I can if I ever get to move. I have to lay anything big on the floor and I can't leave it there very long. I have 2 dogs and a cat.

    I have 3 dogs and a cat, and one of the dogs is a puppy, so nothing can be on the floor with her around. So that makes it difficult. I do have a 12" x18" that I made myself, and it will show on 12" or a couple little blocks, but nothing big enough to put all these stars on.

    Thank you Patricia. Katie, no more puppies for me. I think I might be to old to chase after them now.

    Katie, Nice Missouri! I have been thinking like you, that now that we're halfway, it's time to look and see what colors need more or less use. Also, if I were thinking of changing the background, now might be the time.

    I forgot the song for Missouri. St. Louis Blues, 1925, Bessie Smith and Louis Armstrong.

    Yeah half way there. Time to start thinking about how I am going to put them together. I found a fabric I like to use for sashing, of course it has been out of production for years. There is none available anywhere. I have searched everywhere I guess I will have to pick out something else. Going to a smallish quilt show next week maybe I will find something there. Or I guess I have 6 months to think about it.
    Awesome blocks everyone. I am waiting for a part for my printer so I can print out the block to make it. The part is supposed to arrive tomorrow.

    I got the 50 paper pieced stars book a couple of weeks ago and have been making a few stars at the beginning and a few at the point you are at. I have really enjoyed looking at all of your blocks. Here is my Missouri. All my blocks are 8.5".

    Wow, I just posted a picture of a quilt I am competing and was looking for suggestions for a border. I need to add 19 inches for that and wasn't sure how to finish it. I was so surprised when I found this site. I borrowed the book from my daughter to make this and love, love, love it.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for me on a border? I hope it is OK for me to post this here.

    Your quilt is going to be beautiful! If you need to add 19" you could add three borders: 3", 1.5" and 5". That will give you a total of 19" all around. I hope this helps.
