    thank you! I'm a little bummed because they are not 12.5" but I'll sash them with one of the colors before sending. I'm going to try the beautiful blocks from candlequilter. I'll see how much I get done tonight!

    Ok... making my way through the group!
    Here's another - from our own candlequilter. I need to make her one to thank her for the pattern. It's pretty and not too difficult. But it's like rappelling - there's a point where you just have to jump and believe it'll all be all right. It was!

    Ok, I was able to get one more in tonight! I'm gone tomorrow so no quilting for me.

    I love this block's pattern - Day N Night from quilterscache. But, I use 2 FQs on it. There's a lot of waste with this one. It makes it hard to use this on the boomerang swap. I did use 3 fabrics for a few of them and that helped. I think I'll have save this block for swaps that don't have the f8 limit. :-)

    I'll try to make one with a black and another color - that's the prettiest version of this block.

    I hope you don't mind - I had a few corrections in it. And my points are not perfect in every spot. I tried! I use the pin through technique and check the other side, but inevitably while sewing things get off a little sometimes.

    Here's the pattern, I switched the order and started with the largest piece and #1, then went to the middle then the smallest. Makes for a ton less errors. :-)

    I was on fire tonight! ;-)

    Here are 3 from quilterscache. I should send them some cash for the patterns I use! Love that site...

    http://www.quilterscache.com/G/GalaxyStarBlock.html

    http://www.quilterscache.com/V/VictoriasStarBlock.html

    What I finally (mostly) learned with Paper Piecing... you must be generous with all sideways pieces (except #1). That really helps speed things up - I take forever when I have to redo everything!

    I just realized that I only need to add sashing to the 2 smaller blocks and I'll be ready to ship off your package! Yay!

    You may be able to spray them with water, and then stretch them and block them , let them dry and press them.
