    I don't know. I just iron them and put them on the floor so I can stand above them to take the picture. Sometimes I have to search to find a clean spot on the floor.

    My last 4 blocks

    Hi all, I haven't been posting for a while, but I've been following. I finished my last four blocks, right off hand I don't have a clue what block you are on, but I decided to make my blocks into 3 lap sized quilts, so I made 36 of the blocks, and the Ohio block was my very first paper piecing I had ever done, so I had framed that a year or two ago. So I actually ended up wit 37 blocks. Now I have to figure out how I want to put them together and if I want to QAYG or put sashing or just what. So it will be a while before I get that done. So...here are my last four blocks. Am waiting to see everyones finished projects.

    Klgreene, Beautiful blocks.
    Mona Lisa, West Virginia is such a kaleidoscope. I like the first one for the fabric and the second one because the star shape shows up more. I'm no help.

    Katie, beautiful blocks. MonaLisa, I can't decide either. Both are great.

    Very pretty, Mona Lisa!! Doesn't it feel great to finish? Well, almost, except for assembly, removing paper, picking up confetti a thousand times and quilting!! LOL

    Progress report. I am doing QAYG in large sections. Here is my center section. It is quilted all over with "Matrix," a wiggly grid pattern from Leah Day's free motion quilting project.

    I love that quilting. I'm done with my blocks, now I have to figure out the quilting. I like this idea. I'm making 3 lap size instead of one large quilt, so this is a good possibility. hope you don't mind me stealing it.

    I have to tell all of you ladies that your blocks are wonderful. I'm sorry I didn't join in this adventure. The time was not right for me but I do plan on getting the book and starting in on these stars in Jan. 2013. You all have inspired me. Thanks.

    I am working on putting my blocks together. All my blocks are 8.5 inch. I am trying to put them on point. First time doing a quilt that way and it is a little challenging. I had to do 60 blocks to make my king size quilt.

    I'm afraid all these blocks will just be stored away in a box. I hate quilting. I just like making blocks..........

    What truly wonderful job, Nicky. Wish I had the will to make a quilt from my blocks. Maybe I'll donate them to a charity...................

    Good Grief MonaLisa. I don't like the quilting part either. That is why I am so far behind in it but you can't have spent all that time making those blocks and just give them away. Please tell me NO.

    Ditto that big time! I feel lucky that I like to FMQ. When it's too big to quilt in one piece, I break it down into sections like I'm doing on this one.

    Hooked, Wow. Your quilt is wonderful. Sixty blocks!! I really like the new ones you created, like the Michigan/Ohio combination. All at eight inches.....

    Mona Lisa, I'm kind of like you...enjoy making blocks. Actually, I've never tried quilting so I can't say I hate that part. I took a FMQ class and enjoyed it but never took it any further. It will take so much practice before trying it on a quilt. I am going to put the stars together though, then store it.

    I'm envious of you who have your stars done. I still have seven to go.
