Thanks for all of the suggestions and I'd like to see what the state stars are.

I did my shopping and ended up with all grunges but one and that was a floral by Basic Gray that goes perfectly with a (gasp) burnt orangey grunge. I also found that palest of pale gray grunge that I think is going to be beautiful.

I think I will put all of the suggestions in a bowl and pull one out on Friday or Saturday.

Dear Zipit

I don't have a state star book but an unusual one with fourteen stars. It's from 1995 . It has stars not for the faint of heart but beautiful quilts made out of some or all of the stars. It is called All Star Sampler by Roxanne Carter. You can find it on Amazon books for $2. The one I have doesn't have anything wrong with it  if you can't find it , I would be glad to lend you the book. The quilts are outstanding. Just suggestion. I did want to tell you about it.

Okay, I'll go down into the quilt corner and look for that book.

I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

My Birthday shopping. First stack is for ??? and the second is most of the fabric for the Elephant. These colors and (gasp) one print round out my Grunge pretty well.

I like the color of your fabrics . They look so happy. The ones for the elephant will work very nicely. Have fun with your stars!

And the winner, in the highly technical put them all in a bowl and pick one, is the Tennessee Waltz. I think I will even do it in the colors shown.

Thanks for all of the input. I am late in drawing but sometimes stuff gets in the way.

Starburst quilt at MSQC is great!  They sell the pattern but it's pretty simple to figure out.

Oh NO!  I'm so sorry I got busy and sidetracked about looking for those star books that I have.  But, I found 3.  There's state star quilts, state capital city star blocks and paper pieced star blocks.  Are you interested in any of them?  Probably not because it took me so long to find them.

I think the last book is the one I have.  Don't know where it is, the last time I used it was when we had a 12 day power outage and I did two blocks on the treadle.  It is a neat book.
