    Libster, terrific bright blocks. I sorted this fabric this afternoon along with the rest of the F8s I have for the group. Beautiful selection of fabrics everyone! Two more due to come in and this group's will be ready to go. (I know just the fabric I'm going to use with yours...hope you'll like it!)

    Hav, your elder g'son looks so much like my eldest son when he was that age. So adorable!

    Libster I made a practice star to see if this pattern would work. I wanted to see how many stars I can get in one block. I don't have any bright tone on tone but I do have bright solids. You can decide which color you would like in your block. From the center out: Coral, Light blue, lime green, and orange.

    My favorite is the lime green. Love that block, first time I've seen three stars like that. Really like the pattern.

    Lime green is a good choice. The triple star is something I came up with. I had to figure out how small to make the first star (3") then everything else came together. Each one double the last. So 3", 6" 12". I will have to work on the last round to get it 12.5".

    Everything is packaged and on its way. I decided to use the cat material for the Early Birds so everyone had more options when making multiple blocks. I am asking for solid white and one color from the fabric to be used in the block. No black or red as that will be used in the sashing and binding.

    Solid or tone-on-tone. Just no prints. I want the cats to be the focal of the quilt.

    Thanks for the reminder.. most Boomers really do prefer that blocks be made with a good portion of the f8s they send; it should be the focus of the block. Please let’s all make good use of everyone’s fabric. I’ve never had anyone tell me they appreciated a block made with one or two 4” pieces of their f8. Thank you!

    Great block, and designing your own is so empowering.

    Morning Early Birds. I've pulled Mona G's and Moonrise's fabrics for quick pix. I'd already sorted them out and feared messing up the packages I'd made so while I believe I got all of Mona's, I believe I missed two of Moonrise's but this will help a bit.

    Mona G's (in packages so not a great shot)

    Moonrise (2 fabrics missing)

    I'll put these in the gallery shortly along with any other's I've not added recently. BTW, I've shut down the main group galleries temporarily.

    Also: It appears that all Early Bird fabrics will be in my hands today. I've begun packaging them up and they'll be ready soon. Those of you in only this group, that's GramE, Moonrise, Macybaby, and Mona G, I'll be ready to ship to you on Monday of next week. Any objections to receiving them ahead of schedule? This will not change the due date. You'll just have an extra week. For everyone else, the plan is to ship both groups together so I'll be holding yours for the remainder of the Night Owls' f8s.

    GramE, Moonrise, Macybaby, and Mona G, let me know by the end of the weekend if you'd like me to ship early. If I do not hear from you, I will hold them until 8/11. Thanks!

    I'm looking forward to making the blocks - I've already been looking at a few designs I've not tried before.

    Please send mine early, too. With all the craft fairs I'm doing, the extra time would be great.
