    This is a new BOM with stars. The fabric requirements should go up around the 1st of the month. I looks like a great pattern.

    I don't think that you can just bookmark it since she is only putting a block every couple of weeks then replace it with the new one. I read that somewhere but keep track and just print it when a new one is posted.

    I am waiting for an email back from her. I wanted to make certain the instructions have been tried by several people of various levels of experience.
    I also asked her to classify the experience needed so I could tell Tigerbaby.

    This is what she said on her web site about how hard the quilt is:

    "It would make me real happy if everyone tried to use fabric from the stash. This quilt is truly not hard to make. If you can cut accurately and get a good, consistent 1/4″ seam, it will be a piece of cake to make. Donít worry about the sashing, donít worry about setting it on point, donít worry about the borders .. letís just take everything one step at a time and I think anyone wanting to participate can end up with a beautiful quilt at the end of this little journey."

    I would say if you have made a quilt or 2 you can make this one and we will be here for you if you need us.

    I almost posted this earlier but know that some of us are waiting for the tote mystery. But I think I will do this too. It does say every two weeks instead of one week. so that makes it alot easier. So I am going to do it. The first block is already out, so if you are going to do it go get the block. More fun! :D

    She sure posted the first block early, thanks Skeat for telling us. Has anyone picked fabric. I am trying to use my stash but have not got a few pieces and I am hoping to pick them up tomorrow.

    I let everyone that is waiting for the tote mystery know about this one. Maybe they will want to do this too. The more the merrier :D

    I am so glad I will not be alone in this.

    I am going to make some of them foundation pieced patterns. If anyone is interested in them that way I will share the patterns on here.

    I am fixing to play with the curreunt block and see how it breaks down.

    I have some orientals and some batiks I am considering.

    I was able to make a foundation pattern with this block but no one but me would probably want to do it this way. LOL

    Any other takers out there?

    I too have not looked at my fabric yet to decide what to use. With this one I might want to use something that I will continue to do or put with something else. So have to realy think about it. :roll: :D

    I just tried and I got it fine. Where did you try to get it from? I clicked Archive Aug 2008 then found it there. Try that.
