    And we like having you. Your contributions are very appreciated!

    I think you're blocks are terrific GrannyQ. You have such nice contrast in all of the ones you've posted--I just love them.

    I think you are at a fast gallop, CarrieM, in a great style and form and color. Definitely going strong turning out the blocks. Love the "eye" or "ewe" candy!!

    I finally finished my Cowboy's Star! It is the worst block I've ever made. So very wonky. If I can't make it look right w/the attic windows I'll just replace it!

    dublb--I have had a couple "wonky" blocks too. I haven't tried this one yet. I like the fabrics you chose...the flags look like their moving.

    Oh yeah I got Freezer Paper. It is what I've been makin' my templates out of. I must have sewn 1 or more of the triangles backwards. Thanks for the tip, I think it'll help.

    dublb, my cowboy's star came out much wonkier than yours. I'm going to do it over when I have time. I love your fabrics, the star really shines.

    Dubib...you have enough allowance to square this block up. Might need to frame it to make it the right size but that's easier than redoing that block! It was worse than the confederate rose?

    Ok I think there's a lot of hope now. First I'll trim it as square as I can, then I'll use the freezer paper, & add a frame. Ya'll are awesome. Thanks so much.

    Alas, I'm doing some catch up ...
    It looks like the star points are all lined up and with the 1/4" seam allowances ready for you to slice some off the sides and square it up Yes? No?

    You couldn't have chosen a better fabric combo ... and to keep with your American patriotic theme! The flag fabric looks whiter than IRL ... and yes, some bling for the flags!

    I'm takin' a little time ta step back from it & I'll work on it later. I'm afraid that when I square it up I'll loose one of the tips of one of the points.

    Ps I just realized that the other fabrics in this block came from QNS. I'm really blessed.

    So glad you can enjoy the pieces, Dubd. Love what you are doing with the pieces. Cannot see any gain of space in the quilt room yet...seems life has me on the fast track elsewhere these days. Had to finish picking peas this morning; and that song of eating goober peas was running through my empty head as I shelled them. Cooking them with fresh new potatoes and creaming the combo.

    Always have to laugh about Texas slogan, "Don't mess with Texas."; my brother always remarked, "Who would want too??" Made the Texas Reporter Cookbook recipe of Buffalo Chips Cookies (definitely shows the Texan sense of humor) last Wednesday and took them up to the Lake where our friends were staying...along with Baked Beans, BarBque Chicken legs, cold pasta salad and rhubarb-strawberry crunch. They want the same thing catered in to them next year...and adopt me into their "family".

    The cookies take a pound of butter, 3 different packages of chips, corn flakes, and coconut flakes to create the cow patty and make a ton of cookies. Yep, they are finger lickin' good.

    Oh QNS, you are making me hungry and it is not even lunch time yet! Those cookies sound wonderful!

    Maybe I need to make some 'care' packages and send them out like I did for the kids when they were in college; son ended up selling his triple chocolate brownies for $5.00 a piece that was 2x3 inches. Guess I will see who sends me a private message and go from there. lol!!
