    Mgshaw, those two darker colors could surely find a good home at my place! Love them.

    I was playing today with blues at the quilt shop and then got an early call form a handy man and had to leave sooner than I expected. So the saga goes on...Also while there I got a call from son in San Antonio, he will be having some shoulder surgery the first of December, so it looks like I will be doing the Thanksgiving thing this year instead of Christmas. His wife is a school teacher and will be at a conference in calif., so they need me to drive the grands to school, etc... I was going to wait until going to the Carol Doak seminar in March to see them all but God has different plans,night for now and thanks for the reading eyes.....

    does it matter which is the primary color and/or the background color? I understand blue and white, but does it matter whether the star is white or blue?

    Here is my Blue and White Star. By the way I hope, like Judy suggested you are all going to put a label on you blocks so we know whose is who, think that would be really cool.

    Thats fantastic Butterfly!

    I think I'm going to do 2 sets, one for practice and one to send. I can then alternate between my set and the swops. The points on my first set arent matching too well yet, although from the advice on here the second block was a lot better than the first, so maybe by block 3 they will be ok to send - and I'll just have a couple of extras from the practicing.

    Thanks everyone, that was blood sweat and tears. I never let things beat me though. Glad you all like it.

    I did think about making 24 but at the rate I am going I think 12 is enough.

    That's a beauty Ellie. If you do 24 they can be 12 of one and 12 of another.. so you do not need to do 24 of the same one...
    think about it..

    I am thinking Judy, because I really would like a large size quilt, not only that to have them made by all the ladies on this board would be awesome.

    Lets see what I can do.

    Ok, this is the second block, and for the moment is considered a practise one - how does it look? Its certainly better than the first- which you dont get to see a picture of! Hopefully the next will be even better...!

    Nice job,

    Just a reminder to everyone to make sure your blocks measure 12 1/2 inches, UNFINISHED...

    Thanks...

    the blocks are looking good girls...
