    Thank you all for the nice compliments. It is a great encouragement to keep getting more blocks finished.

    OKGlad--yes, the blue dot is KT. I have a few fabrics with dots on different color backgrounds...none are the exact same. The last time I went shopping with my group of quilting friends I picked up the light blues that have been appearing in my recent blocks.

    dublb--I will pass on your message to Crystal.

    Did a little searching and the light blues fabrics (and same dots other colors) are from KT Wildflower Serenade I and II. Here are links: http://www.unitednotions.com/fcc_wil...r_serenade.pdf and http://www.unitednotions.com/fcc_wil...erenade_II.pdf

    Ok time to get off the computer and get ready for work....at least it doesn't feel too much like work since I get to look/touch fabric all day.

    No I don't like the small pics either. There have been some postings that had both sizes. Go figure that!

    Last night I decided to get back into the PC Swing. I'm so tickled to get this two done and have fabrics ready for the current week's blocks. Yeah! In reviewing this week's blocks I am so amazed at the differences in their interpretations. And they are all so wonderful. Nice to see a variance not only in the non Pony fabrics but the Pony fabrics as well.Name:  PC 27 Crystal Star.jpg

    Thanks all, it feels so good to get back at them. You all are so supportive it makes one want to get to the finish line!
    Anyone else notice how nice the Dakota Star would be as a great connector block with any variable star block?

    OksGlad--Your blocks look great! I just got some of the KT fab in the top block...the deep purple (brown?) w/flowers. I have it all cut and ready to use in one of my blocks. Keep at it and one day you will be all caught up! (this is what I have to keep telling myself!!)

    OKSewglad....so happy to see your beautiful blocks. I've truly enjoyed going to the fair with you virtually and all of the fun with your GKs. Tomorrow I'll be behind if I don't get something done today that I can post. Still haven't decided on my substitute block.

    Got a good night's sleep and ready to post pics of my blocks. My center points on this one didn't quite line up but it looks ok from a distance. The floral in this block is one of my favorite!

    Such nice fabrics, Carrie! You have such great taste I think my floral in CStar is more brown than the purple in yours. And you know we're riding galloping horses on the days the points don't quite match! Seems like I'm going at a fast pace everyday.

    CarrieM ... it is indeed a nice print and with the assorted colours it gives you lots to jump off to other colours with! So the points don't quite match ... there's always a little shift with quilting, so chances are it'll never be noticed later! It still makes for a nice star!

    Anael .. while I have your attention
    I know you haven't been following all the threads as you've been busy with your Ode to Mom ... I hope you would join us for the PC Bonus Block Swap
    Here's the start of the discussion ...
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/blocks-...198948-10.html
    That happened when I was away from the threads for awhile ... the end result is that we make a block for each person (currently 11, with you that'd be 12, if including ourself). Same size as PC blocks, any pattern, all the same or different. You can label each for specific people if you make individual ones. Then we send them all off to CarrieM, she re-sorts and sends them all back to us.

    Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease?

    Such great blocks everyone has made. I just finished Dakota Star. My last blocks were made June 13. Yikes! 3 of my centre points played nice and one, not so much, but I am really happy with the contrast of this block.

    w4me, the dark fabric brings out a shimmer in the light...great contrast...and well once in a while points just don't want to play nice--galloping horse observation!!!

    Ooh, I'm so glad you're doing some more blocks. It makes me take a little trip down memory lane and doing these blocks (most of the memories are pleasant, some not so good LOL). I love the way you're using your fabrics. And OKSewglad, great pun (intended??) about the galloping horse rule/Pony Club quilt!

    W4Me! .... This is great news, to see you back in the Halloween PC Saddle!

    Look how the orange in the dark webs, pull out the orange from that sage. It is really a chameleon fabric.
    You like your buttons and trims ... I'm sure you could find one that would be perfect as a camo for that off-point point.

    Here's hoping we get to see more again, soon!

    **skipping down memory lane**
    with JanRN!

    Thank you. I'm being really picky about which blocks I make with which fabrics with the hope of getting the most bang for my buck. My note on Dakota Star was 'needs major contrast'.

    I plan to keep making blocks for a while janRN. It will likely be sporadic as time is not my friend these days.

    So far, I have 25 blocks done. The original goal was 63 for the twin size quilt. Now I am not so sure. I believe I have 18 Halloween batiks that have not been used yet so that will influence my decision. And I have a new idea for my centre square which will take up quite a bit of time, too, if it works, or even if it doesn't.
