    Honchey ... ITA with JeanieG, nothing wrong with that block. In fact, I think it's really neat!

    JeanieG ... Great colours and contrasts.

    Like JeanieG, I matched all four points of the Cowboy's Star and included some "bling". Also, I rearranged the fabric placements in the Country Lanes. I guess, I wanted more order!

    It's a neat fabric ... the bling is like rainbow metallic pieces, more so than sparkles. I used it in another quilt a couple years ago, a little in the quilt top, then the borders and all of the backing!

    Beautiful blocks as usual, love your fussy cutting Anne, it looks great.
    Here are mine for this week. I'm not happy with the centre of Cowboys Star but I am not unpicking it. It is as close as I am going to get it.

    Wow. Everyone's stars are awesome!..and I do like the more ordered squares on the second block. Makes me want to get at mine but that will be my reward for getting the design wall cleared...hopefully today if my DH doesn't decided that today is the day to do taxes.

    Great blocks, ladies.
    Anne-your block reminds me that it's time for a FART!!
    Jeanie-I have the same problem with CS-hope it quilts flat; love the colors you used.
    QE-oh no! Great minds think alike. I had to have Country Lanes "flow" like roads and also have bling in CB. Love them.
    Anael-your blocks are so soft & romantic--very pretty.
    Mirabelle-love the roses and the darker red you used in CS.

    Here are mine (I hope this works; I've been getting an Error Message when I try to post)

    My gosh, how did you all do such a great job on cowboy's star? I need HELP! I've done it twice, I'm not sure how it goes together. It doesn't look like the pieces match. Anyone have any tips? I've finished country lanes and will post later. Gotta go.

    Owo Beautiful blocks. Everyone did a great work.
    I have done only the easy one for this week and I am racking my mind with the Cowboy Star...still trying.
    Yours are awesome. How did all of you make it? Any hint is welcome!
    So, here is Country Lanes:

    Anael ... Fresh and Spring like!!!MiraB ... Perfect fit from your fabrics to give that star a western look! JanRN ... ha! GMTA we broke rank to re-order those lanes and put some bling on that star!! Good thought on Honchey's choice and the need for a FART!!! The first one to use stars in the star! JanRN and MiraB ... guess we're all thinking red and blue for cowboys? GGal ... Yes, sometimes those design walls get crowded!! Even with one the size of mine (7-1/2x10ft) , it is never big enough!! Right now I have my FWS all up there and wish it was another foot or two taller. Also have my 4PP ... next on the UFO list when I get the FWS off to the LQS. Oh no! at the thought of taxes ... ggrrrrrr!!! Termi ... did you PP? I only had one problem ... and that was when I put the right piece on but the wrong edge used. rrrrrrrrip! I made the star points first, joining the 4 pieces together. Then to each star point, added the outer most background piece to each side (that's where I joined the wrong side of one to the star). Then added one of the 5-sided pieces to each of the star points. So now you have 4 combined sections. Then joined 2 of each together. Then joined those last 2 to make one. Clear as mud in the Country Lane?? I kept them all laid out together as I went, to make sure I had everything in order. The mini-layout pictures have been really helpful.ArteEC ... OMG that's a wonderful representation. FCing is bang on. Then some gravelled roads and some wheat (or perhaps dried grass?) in the other blocks. Lovely!

    I've re-edited it three times now, trying to get the paragraph spacings to stick ... and no can do!



    BTW ... there's more discussion in the Discussion Page about PPing these blocks!

    Aneal - Your colors are vibrant. I just love those blocks!
    Miribelle - Colors are perfect & I see those roses again!
    Jan - Your colors for Country Lanes are so soft. I love those heavenlys in your Cowboy's Star!
    Art - Your interpretation of this block is perfect. Great FC!
    Windi - These 2 blocks are so different from each other. Your layout of country lanes is neat! Blue is my favorite color. Those dots go perfect w/ the purple & yellow!

    Great blocks all!

    Everyone, your blocks are beautiful! I haven't (yet) joined your journey but have been keeping up, eating your dust, so to speak. Some of the blocks seem intimidating! Once I get some of my current projects under control (sort of ) I may attempt to catch up with y'all -- gotta put the book and fabrics to use. Just wanted to thank all of you for the weekly eye candy!

    Arte, I love your block--it's so calming but very colorful.
    Wendiq, I love your polka dots--such bright blocks.
