    my foundations are all ready- i've decided to use a black background on all of them- think i'm going kind of scrappy for the (body) of the stars- but sticking to blues, maybe purples, greens...but we shall see that can certainly change as we go along
    i have a couple other things going on this weekend (we do our family get together at my mom's on New Years Day every year) so, i'm still pulling things together for that---once tomorrow is done- i can finally say -- ok Christmas is over- i can now move into the new year---
    but the plan is in motion- and as for layout--- i kind of like the idea of adding the 6 extra blocks---so i will have 56 ---i like the on-point idea too---only time will tell=with me my (plan) changes dozens of times during the creation of each and every quilt before they finally turn into a finished project but i am going to do the 6 extras---
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    I have my first block finished except for taking off the paper. I just used fabrics that I had on hand. Who knows, I might just change my mind on other fabrics. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Blessings!

    Finished the Delaware star late yesterday afternoon in the 12" block size. I'm going to do them starting with the fewest pieces and work up to the lot of pieces. I also downloaded the the software so I can resize the blocks and I'm going to do mine in a smaller size.

    Wow!!! Beautiful stars. I may have to rethink my white background. Will post as soon as I know how to do it. Will need my techno husband to help. Great job, folks. You are all so talented.

    I can't seem to upload the photo of my alabama star. I will try again later. Could be my lack of computer skills or my lack of good internet. Until I figure it out I will just enjoy everyone elses.

    Paintmejudy, tomilu, your stars are beautiful. Are any of those fabrics going throughout? Iwillquilt, you may just have to resize your picture for a webpage.

    I have to go into the Windows Picture Gallery, then when my pic is up, go into Paint and resize-I do 15%. Took me a while to figure that out, lol.

    The colors, but not necessarily those fabrics. My picture is somewhat washed out, don't know why.

    Thank you tomilu. I will try this. Love the stars so far. It has been a busy week for me and hope to work on my 2nd block this afternoon. After the wonderful grandchildren go home. Love seeing them.

    What fun to see the beautiful blocks you ladies have made so far! I'm making a beach quilt, so it's in blues and browns.

    Here is mine.

    The green background and the dark batik with the flowers will be a constant. I may add a second constant, not sure yet, will work that out as I pick fabrics. I want to do this completely scrappy batiks, except for the green background which I did have to buy. Naturally, when I was looking for fabrics in my stash, there was never enough of what I wanted to use!

    Fabulous background fabric for a beach quilt. Love the footprints in the sand.

    Wow, Pokerdive, Paintmejudy, Rwquilts and Tomilu.........your blocks are striking and beautiful. Mine is coming soon.

    I am planning on having the same background on all my stars so I was doing some figuring and came up with 6 yards. Has anybody else figured this out? It just seems like a lot.

    I haven't figured yardage on my background. I have about 5 yards, so if that is not enough I'm in big time trouble, lol. I still need to get a sashing, but no hurry on that.
    Time to leave for church, see you all later.

    I don't know on this, but I do know that it takes quite a bit more fabric when you paper piece things so I wouldn't be surprised at it taking that much to do all the backgrounds. I may have to pick up more fabric as we go along.

    It's taken me quite some time to upload this picture, but finally got it. Here is my first block. I'm going to do mine in scrappy colors, but all with a beige on beige backgroud. So one down, 49 to go....and everyones turned out really pretty. This is going to be fun! Katie

    So what else is new, my picture said uploaded, but it's not, and I've been trying to upload for an hour. Still do not like this new site. I'll post as soon as it will let me. I've resized and done everything I can.
