    JudyG..........I love your pp'ing Stars for Feb 15th!! :D You have done a marvelous job making them. I can't wait to start on mine. Wish me luck!!

    Thanks, Sulabug. This was a fun star to work on. I was a little intimidated when I saw the picture, but when you start working with the template, it's really quite simple. I do wish you luck, but I know you won't need it. I've seen your work, and it's beautiful.

    Now I have to get busy on that Farmhouse - talk about intimidating. :roll:

    I will just look with awe for now. I am tackling triangles and pulling my hair out. These points look harder.

    Absolutely gorgeous, PokerDiva. I love your colors (as you can see from mine, I love blue). Didn't take you any time at all. Good job!

    Don't be afraid of it. The paperpiecing sure makes getting good points easier.

    Very pretty star block. Boy I'm really learning to paper piece between the star bom and the house bom.

    They are all amazing! Yes I have to say it looks hard! But I'm willing to try. I can do paper piecing with no problems. Done oodles of them, but never a star as this. My advice to anyone wanting to try is to, get some old and ugly scraps, practice, practice, practice! Then before you know it you'll have an ugly duckling turned into a beautiful work of art.

    (Hey, I can sling the bull but getting me to acutally ride the sucker is another!) Ha! Wish me luck!

    I finished a quarter of the block today (lol, I'm taking it slow). I'm a little worried about how mine is going to turn out - I'm doing all Black and White fabrics and I'm afraid it's going to look VERY busy. =/ Oh well...we'll see how it comes out.

    Mine is a little too wild but all the points match well.

    I have been making the pp method and getting a box of freezer paper and cannot wait to try that. BOTH BLOCKS ARE ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. Well done. Just love this pattern thanks to Jerrie and her creation
