    The Star Puzzle was fun. I used my Go Baby to cut all the triangles.

    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Now it's time to start catching up. After 3 starts and lots of ripping and re-cutting, I finished it! Here is my Lemon Star its not quite square and its a little small but I did it, and I love the colors. I don't think I would do more than just one or two squares like this but it was a great learning experience. Now on too some easy squares and maybe some paper piecing.

    update

    Going to put all of them on the design wall tomorrow and figure out how many more I need for this quilt. Excited about putting it together.

    Hi Everyone! Sorry I have been out of commission more or less the past 10 days, but I am on the mend now. I finished up the blocks for the first quilt tonight.

    I am sure I never met a block that made me want to poke my eyes out more! The reverse side has white as the background of course.

    All 40 blocks, 20 on the back and 20 on the front. I am thinking I will sash the black side with turquoise and the white side with hot pink.

    All of you have made beautiful blocks! For those of you putting them together in a quilt or throw - are you planning on using sashing between the blocks? Just curious as I would like to use mine in some type of quilt. I am not sure how to tie together different blocks otherwise.
    I am planning on getting caught up on these blocks this weekend.

    Most of the time it depends on how large I want the quilt to be that determines how I sew it together. Plain sashing, or I have sashed them like a shadow box or put them on point. Usually put them all together and try the different ways to see which one I like the looks of better. have seen some that just sew the blocks together and sash around the outside. Whichever you like is the way you should sew it. I'm still "auditioning" mine for the final decision.

    I'm not making all of the blocks from this quilt along, but I'm using 12 of them. I plan on trying the ones I don't do later! I've saved them all!

    I do plan on putting sashing between the blocks. I think it will help tie them all together! I have three and half more to do! The cactus flower is throwing me for a dozy!

    One more down the Double Aster, this one I cheated a little. I have a problems sewing on the diagonals when I am placing small pieces. I tried the first time following the instructions. What to do? I created a paper piece pattern! Yes it was extra work but I think it turned out well. It is the correct size and I love the colors. I am about half way on the three different lap quilt.

    Tracy, I can't wait to see the finished quilt.

    Jaba, Do you have a picture of your wall yet? Love to see it.

    Not sure Lynhut, but I think I would try a light gray for the sashing. See what it looks like

    I like the stars but the white seems weak. I agree maybe the shade of gray that is in the print?

    yup, that's what I was thinking. Think it will tie your print fabric in nicely and add a soft color. The white just doesn't give it the pop for me.

    Lyn, I love your colors and quilt so far!

    I sewed the binding on mine last night. There are so many mistakes with the sashing and my laziness to squaring squaring up.

    I quilted each block individually with a different design each block. The front was white thread while the bobbin was black thread. Had lots of tension issues so there are spots of black in the white and vice versa.

    Here are some of the blocks quilted spread out in 2 posts

    Tracy that is great!!!! I really really like the pink side! It's my favorite! I like the blue and black together too though!

    I would say gray also, however if this is the same as top one below and seeing it all laid out, I have to admit, I like it just as it is.

    I cheated. Traced patterns onto freezer paper, ironed on, followed pattern.

    I love it no matter how you did it. Mine are still in blocks I have a few more to do then maybe I will jump in with both feet and try to FMQ. I can't decide which side is my favorite.

    Hi Everyone

    I am slowly catching up. Here is 4 more of my blocks, hopefully I have enough fabric to do the next 4 and that will be enough for this quilt.
