    Yes they were 12" FINISHED so when we start we need to talk 12 1/2 " size. This wonīt be so difficult as the stars because I KNOW some of those blocks didnīt come out to the 12 1/2"

    It is gorgeous, but way too difficult for my skill level :roll: !!!! I do have some lady slipper batik fabric made especially for a MN shop hop that I could use as a fabric in whatever block I make, so that would KINDA tie in the MN flower !

    Hmmm...Elle, you sound awfully SURE about that block NOT ending up the right size!!!!! :lol: :lol: This is sounding like a lot of fun...so when will you be starting the new thread for this or have you already and I just haven't checked? I love the charity quilt your group made with all Izy's hard work on it too!

    MINE ARRIVED!! YAYYYYYY!

    I'm so far behind the eight ball it's not funny, sorry! :-)

    I've been away for the last nine days house sitting for a friend who has no internet and is miles away from anywhere. I missed you guys, but took a whole lot of sewing and had an absolutely marvelous time on my own, sewing for a whole week!

    Was so excited to arrive home tonight and see my blocks waiting, they're just gorgeous and way better than I expected!

    And yes, the no name block that someone said was mine was correct, sorry again! Was in such a panic to get them posted in time I forgot about labelling them.

    I love the idea of the flower challenge, would there be some kind of consistency with a background colour to make sure they all "go" together?

    Great, however, we will wait until this one is finished and everyone has got their blocks, okay. I am still waiting for mine and so are a couple of others Canadians mainly I think. There will be a background chosen so that everyone will have the same background.

    Okay.

    Well I am not as sure as all that, obviously if you were going to applique then thats aforegone conclusion but if we do PP thats going to be different.

    You havenīt missed it just waiting for everyone to get their Block first.

    They're all so, so gorgeous!!!!
    I just have to wait now and decide how to finish them.

    For the next one another thing to consider is whether to have blocks on point or not?

    Well thanks for that. I was speaking to a friend who originally lived in S Africa and she is still waiting on her parcels they seem to take forever. She has just a village postman who delivers on foot to the surrounding villages, he is a very fit man.

    I AM SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I finally got my stars!! Alleluia!!!
    They are beautiful! I showed a couple friends and they are already asking me how I am going to put them together! One friend suggested orange because it is the complimentary color to blue on the color wheel I guess! I don't know! I will wait and see! I have a few ideas now I just need to sit and stare!!!
    Thank you again ladies! This was my first exchange like this but as of right now it will NOT be my last!!!
