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.

    I am catching up! Here is Pennsylvania, and I am starting Rhode Island now. I have been working on my One Block Wonder top, which is finished. I will post a photo when I have done the FMQ.

    Meanmon, your blocks were worth the wait. Glad that darn old camera of yours finally started working. Nicky, I love the background fabric in your star. All the stars are winners.

    Here is my collection so far, with and without sashing. Either way, they need to be moved around. This is just alphabetical order.

    Nicky, my vote is with the sashing. It is going to be beautiful.

    I haven't sewn stars in a while, but I still follow to see how everyone is doing. They are all so pretty. Nickylsf-I really like your stars with the sashing, and I like keeping them in alphabetical order. Whatever you decide you sure will have a beautiful quilt.

    Meanmom, I'm glad your camera finally decided to start working. So frustrating when you can't figure out whats going on. But your stars are beautiful. My favorite of that bunch is New York.

    Nicky, that is a really neat program. What is it anyway? I think I like the sashing best too, because it lets each star be a focus. I also like the craziness without the sashing....dancing with the stars??

    Sue, it is quilting software called Quilt Pro. It exists for Mac or Windows. You can use it to design blocks or quilts, or to create paper pieced patterns or traditionally pieced templates. You can audition fabrics with it, and import your photos, in my case, of completed blocks. See their website at www.quiltpro.com. They also have sales periodically. They are the same folks who make the free standing Foundation Factory programs and CDs.

    Here is my Rhode Island block. I am caught up for now! I think I will start on NC with its 120 pieces, so I can stay caught up! I am also getting ready to piece the backing for my OBW quilt. Pics of that soon on the pics page...

    Nicky I like yours with and without the sashing. I think I like it a little more with the sashing. I am still trying to decide on my sashing. I finished North Dakota and Ohio last night. Some day I will catch up. I have pictures to post and I laid all of my blocks out. I am loving it. Will try to post later. Camera and pictures are upstairs and I am in the recliner downstairs. Too lazy to walk up there right now.

    Nicky, you have another beautiful block in RI. Wish I could fabrics together the way you do.

    Omgosh! I have told you before I love your blocks so much. LOVE! It's stunning. I have been in awe at all the colors and shades of colors you have pulled out of your main fabric. Did I say I love ALL your stars??

    I haven't sewn a star in months but I've lurked here and watched and seen each beautiful star all y'all have done. Only 10 left....sob...sob...wishing I could have kept up...

    Florence, your South Carolina is great!! It is true, we are really approaching the end. I will be sad in a way. Whenever I don't feel like doing anything else, I can always work on a star... Here is mine.

    Both very pretty, ladies. I'll be another day or two I'm afraid. Lots of pieces on this one. PokerDiva, I too like the way your SC turned out. It really shows off your focus fabric.

    Thank you Sheri and Nicky. Sheri, never too late to join back in. I think we will be around awhile. Nicky, there is always that putting it together progress that we can all show. I have decided to use a navy sashing with purple cornerstones and using the purple as the first border. What do you think. When I get caught up with a few other things, I will put a couple rows together and post to let you see what it will look like. Nicky love your SC. It just always amazes me how different the same block can look with different fabrics.

    I am still thinking about the sashing. 2" sashing will make this quilt much bigger than I want, as I have no use for a king size plus quilt. So I may use the QAYG method I know that uses 3/4" sashing but does not increase the size of the quilt. Or only use 36 blocks with 2" sashing... I just don't know yet. Then I would have to do something else with the remaining 14 blocks.

    Poker diva I love your South Carolina. It could possibly be my favorite of your blocks so far. I love purple.

    Thank you Pat. I love purple too. Nicky, I am going to cut mine at 1 1/2". I am only putting sashing in because otherwise I think the seams will be to bulky.

    MonaLisa, beautiful. It does look like a snowflake but it also looks like it is on fire.
