    Joyce, we made one block a week with a group here on the QB and that was quite manageable.

    Thank you Linda. All these are in Carol Doak's book 50 Fabulous Paper Pieced Stars. You can get it on amazon or on caroldoak.com. You can also get it on a CD or download from quiltpro.com. Each star has the name if one of the 50 states, but the naming is not at all traditional except perhaps Ohio.

    I subsequently removed the binding, added a 6" border (quilted first) and then reattached the binding. I also made 2 pillow shams.
