    Thank you Sue, but PN almost doesn't look like a star to me. I do love yours though. Sometimes I wish I could just come and raid everyone elses stash. Some great fabrics everyone has. Hey Katie, there you are. Nice to hear from you again. Hope you enjoy that new room.

    Very pretty, Colleen. Your black backgrounds are going to make a striking quilt!

    Sue, good choice of song! And your PA is gorgeous. You and Florence have inspired me to try a non scrappy quilt one of these days!

    Note to self. DO NOT LOOK UP AT THE TV WHILE USING A ROTARY CUTTER! I got lucky. I was trying to finish up New Jersey, trimming the pieces to put them together. I looked up at the TV......... and I was really lucky. The fingernail on my middle finger is now really short and I shaved the skin off but no blood. Maybe I should pay more attention. I decided it was time to quit for the night while I still had 10 fingers!

    Geez, it didn't want to upload my pics but finally got it. Got my SMALL design wall up. Only place I had to put it is in the guest room. Had to take a quilt down to put it up. They are in order of how they were done not how I will sew them together. Any ideas for sashing? I was thinking deep purple but can't find the right one. Next thinking navy. Any suggestions?

    Florence, they look great! I would pick a color from the focus fabric, if you want sashing at all. I have seen many of these without sashing, especially when your backgrounds read mostly as solids. Unless you need the sashing for adding to the size.

    oh i love your (quilt!) Florence-
    do you feel you need sashing? if it's necessary i would probably go with the navy- just because the (right purple) can be so difficult to get to play well with everyone else.
    maybe even a white on white?...that would float everything. depends on your reason for sashing and how wide you plan to make it- navy would give distinct separation- white would float the stars with out as much distinct separation- i would lay out a few candidates & blocks, step back & see what i like best...looking good !
    i need to get off the computer- go make breakfast- & get into my sewing room to make today's block!
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    mona lisa, I LOVE LOVE LOVE your Rhode Island block! now i really need to get off here, make breakfast & get to my sewing room to make mine!
    and about my star fabric - getting lost in Pennslyvania---i have used it in a number of my blocks now & when they are hanging all together it really does not (disappear) as much as the picture may make it seem-
    it is (subtle) but it stands up at the same time- i think when i get it all together all of you will see it better

    Colleen and Nicky, thanks for the help with the sashing. I was really only going to use sashing because I was afraid of the bulk in the seams putting the blocks together. Maybe I should put a few together just to see how bad it would be. Colleen, I love your starry fabric in your blocks. I am glad that it shows better in person. I know pics can sometimes not show the same as in person. I think you quilt will be beautiful.

    Anyway here is my #39 Rhode Island.

    so, why is it- when i make a block that i feel i really did a poor job choosing fabric for- the points all come out perfect?
    i am pretty disappointed with my choices this week- but boy-that center could not be more perfect! figures...
    and when i showed it to hubby he actually (YUKKED) it! then proceeded to tell me what i *should have* done-
    i'm starting to think i should just get him to choose the fabrics each week---
    anyway- here it is Rhode Island-- i may re-make it sometime down the road- or i may accept it--only time will tell- it actually doesn't look so bad hanging with the rest of them...

    Colleen, I love those fabrics. And tell your DH he is not the quilt police. I think those colors go wonderfully together and just pop but what the heck do I know.

    CK, I love those two outter fabrics together. I'm not wild about the paisley but that's just me. I sure wouldn't do it over, leave perfect alone. : )

    I need help. I was hoping someone could help me figure out placement of my quilt. I have all my star blocks finished and ready to put together. They are 8 finished each and I plan on using 2 inch sashing between the blocks 2 inch cornerstones (hope this is the correct terms). I want to make a king size and put the blocks on point. Can anyone tell me how to place the blocks correctly. Hope this makes sense and I hope someone can help me. Thanks.

    Hi Carolyn, I can't help you, having never done an on point quilt, and I'm not even sure about your question, but I can't wait to hear an answer. I'll bet there are tutes, on this site or on YouTube, that show how to do it. Now that the end is actually in sight (over 3/4 done) I know I'm starting to think about how to put it together. I'm planning on staggering my rows with no sashing. But I can't wait to see what others come up with.

    Florence, I love all your stars together. Some of them show up so differently with all of them together. I like the way you did Michigan, which I hadn't noticed before. I think I'll try that with Oklahoma, which I haven't done yet. One thing I have done, is open the picture in Paint, and then draw in different colored lines. It's a pretty rough technique, but might rule out some ideas. I did a couple of colors so you can see what I mean, but you can use the 'edit color' to get different shades.

    Wow Florence I love all of the stars together. I haven't laid all of mine out in a while. I need to do that again. I also need to get my pictures posted. Haven't posted any in quite a while. All of this weeks blocks look so pretty. I am getting anxious to finish now. Can't wait to see all of them done and sashed (or not).

    Sue, as usual love your RI. That is neat the way you did that with my blocks. I kinda like them both which of course doesn't help at all.

    Carolyn, I am not sure I understand your question either. I have made quilts set on point but I was always following directions. Maybe I could help if I knew exactly what you were asking. By the way, I don't remember seeing any of those blocks posted. I know we would all like to see them.

    Meanmom, that means you too. We all want to see.

    OK after weeks of not being able to get pictures from my camera to my computer it has started working. I haven't fixed or changed anything. Just glad it is finally working.
