    I have a few blue fabrics but none that I really like, soooo I will have to get some at our Club tomorrow.

    Have we got a date when we can start?

    I have managed to narrow my choice down and have chosen a star which I think will be good. Is simple but looks intricate.... NOW that is my kind of star.

    Brazen, I picked from quilters cache and that was my thought to. Hopefully no one will have my star. In any case they won´t have my spanish fabric. LOL

    Have you tried Carol Doaks site. She has a number of stars on there.

    Carol Doak is where I got the pattern for my center block for my round robin. I found the pattern easy to work with.

    Brazen, have you looked a the Tutorial section on the Main Page here.

    They have a paper piecing guide. Go for it girl, you can do it.

    A question: Does the block pattern have to have "Star" in the name of it? I've seen some block patterns that have the "star" effect, though their names don't include "star". I have plenty of "Star" patterns to chose from, so it's not a big deal ... just wondering. Thanks!

    No, I dont care what it is called, just that it looks like a star....

    Rules are pretty broad on this one...

    Elle,

    start when ever you want The only requirement is that they reach me by March 1. I will mail them back out by March 15.. So any that arrive late will be returned...

    Ill send PMs to everyone with my address and probably a reminder when we get a little closer to the due date. In the mean time, have fun sewing..one set, or two even..

    I love blue and white blocks! I made a blue and white star sampler many years ago, but sold it. It was the very first quilt I sold and it went to France!!!

    Now I want another blue and white star quilt. COUNT ME IN!!! Since I have a queen size bed, I will probably send in two sets!!!

    I have a pile of blues and whites and home in my stash. I will go through them this weekend and pull some favourites. I'll put it off to the side then when the time comes I'll make them up. I will do some star searching soon too!!!!

    Cheers!

    Question: Is it possible to NOT get back one of my own blocks? If I send 12 (or 2 sets), can I get 12 or 14 different ones. Is any one else of that desire?

    Ahh, my little Gracie kitty isn't as little as she once was! But what a wonderful friend she is. She gives me a facial every morning about 5:15 AM! I just decided to put a fall avitar - I didn't think anyone would notice!!

    I am sorry, but,

    with this many participants, it will be difficult to do this for one or two people.
