    So I was playing with my blocks yesterday. Does anyone know if I put the blocks on point how big would I have to cut the squares before cutting them diagonally for the setting triangles?

    Oh so pretty. I like the fussy cutting in Montana. I need to get to work on my stars. I have been sidetracked again. I am making donation doll quilts for toys for tots. I am going to finish the border on one then put them aside to quilt later. I can't get too far behind on my stars. I also need to do my Dear Jane blocks. I am going to Hilton Head on Friday and wanted to get several ready to do hand applique to do in the evenings.

    Montana

    Good morning everyone, here is my Montana. I thought I'd get more of the design, but it worked out pretty good.

    here is my Montana- this one came together well- and as usual they all look great!
    wvhill22- you are not behind- we are on Montana this week- some people are just ahead of the rest of us-(as in doing Nevada) which is next week's block if you are doing 1 block a week- but there is no real (time-line) you can do them at your own pace and in the order you want- some of us are just doing them in order- one a week- which puts us at week 26- Montana- don't stress over stars way ahead of us- or behind===it's not a race- just a fun group project.

    Wow, lots of fabulous fussy cut blocks this morning! They are all great. Not to say the others aren't great, too! Good job, everyone. I've 2 blocks to make today, hope I can catch up.

    Thanks, Pam. Now that I am more experienced with these, I cut all the fabrics in advance for each block, and label the little stacks as Carol suggests. Then I go through the numbers for both sections. I glue on all the A & B #1 pieces, then sew on all the #2 pieces, all the #3 pieces, etc., assembly line style. It goes much faster this way!

    Thanks Nicky, I posted some after Minnesota so will probably wait till I get a few more new ones. Have you named yours yet? How about Wild California Skies.

    Has anybody named theirs yet?

    Hey WhitePine, That is a good name! I had not thought of a name yet.

    My houses quilt from last year is almost done. I am now putting on the third border and then need to FMQ. It is called "Gimme Shelter". I thought you as a music lover would appreciate this!
