    Here is my Utah. Yeah almost finished. I really like yours Pokerdiva. I have been working ahead because I want to start assembly before I start another project. I only have the B half of Wyoming to finish. Woo Hoo! I would have finish Friday night but I had to finish mine and my DH Halloween costumes. Hopefully today. I also need to clean up the living room so I have enough space to arrange the blocks and figure out my sashing width etc. Can't wait to finish.

    Patrice, I like the way you put the fabric in the star.

    Nice Utahs everyone. And I like your latest "mixed star" Florence. I think Utah is my favorite for the design of the four blocks together. Only six more, but I still have five that I missed this summer. Here's another Utah.

    Great looking Utah blocks, Ladies. Here is mine, a little late. This week I am going to work on the lay out for my stars quilt. I will play around with the virtual quilt to reposition some blocks, then start on the QAYG in sections of 4 or 6 blocks.

    We got back last night from a 4 day motorcycle event in Death Valley. We took our toy hauler and had 3 great days of riding our Harleys around Death Valley. What an amazing place!

    Nicky, love your star but I must say you certainly make me feel old. Glad you had a fun trip.

    Thank you Florence. I am young in spirit and hope to never grow up. I will turn 64 on December 2.

    Nice star Nicky. Love the star fabric. I'm not much older either but seem to have gotton stuck in the mud. Partly because of animals, but that has to just be an excuse. We're both physically healthy (husband, mentally, not so much) so that's no excuse. Financially we're OK (at least for now ). We used to travel and do a lot of stuff. Don't know what happened. Maybe it's the old inertia law...an object in motion stays in motion. So keep on movin!!

    I got all of my stars laid out last night. I would love to set them on point but that would make it huge. I want to use all of them. I decided to pull out Vermont and make 3 more of them for a wall hanging. They make a neat design when put together. I am using all of the rest in my quilt. I got 2 of the 7 rows sewed together last night. I hope to finish a few more tonight. Can't wait to see it all finished. I am looking forward to seeing everyone elses.

    Sue, you are right, moving is the key! We have 3 dogs and every day I take one of them for a 7 mile mountain bike ride, or a 4 mile walk. They need it and so do I. I didn't start out doing so much, I built up to it. But even 30 minutes of walking is a great start!!

    I have 5 of my 7 rows sewed together. I probably won't get much done tonight since it is Halloween. We alway have a ton of trick or treaters. We had over 250 last year. Not sure how many we will have this year it is about 40 degrees and there has been a light drizzle all day. People bring in car loads from other neighborhoods.

    Meanmom, I can't wait to see your top!

    We never get trick or treaters, and that is why I always buy OUR favorite candies, just in case... Around here, they drive them out to neighborhoods in town where it is more populated so they can get a bigger bang for their buck!

    Here it is. I am having a hard time getting a good picture. I tried outside and inside. I can't get the colors to show up right. But here it is. I am really happy with how it looks. Now to decide how to quilt it. I used 49 blocks in the quilt. I pulled Vermont out and plan on making 4 of them to use as a wall hanging. When you put 4 Vermonts together it makes a nice secondary design. If you look at the block I am going to make it so the line that runs thru it is all the same color and the rest will be multi color.

    I will have to look at it for a while to decide how to quilt it. I am thinking of having it done. It is a large queen size and I hate doing them on my machine. I still need to make a back.

    That is spectacular! I can't tell whether you used the more muted or brighter of the two sashings, but whichever it is, it's perfect. I love it.
