Star Crazy February BOM

Jan and I worked on our February Star Crazy blocks yesterday. We have set aside one morning a month to work together at my house, which we hope will keep us up to date on making our blocks.

I really enjoyed making the February blocks. The colors speak of Spring, which feels almost around the corner here in St. George, Utah. The sun is shining and we have temperatures in the 60's.
*I'm not even sure if I should share that, because I feel for those of you who are inundated with so much snow right now. I know... move to St. George!

I like working with the paper piecing method provided by Sue Garman. I appreciate all of your suggestions on how to go in and change the computer printing selections.
It worked! My 1-inch test square came out perfectly, and I could use the patterns provided by TQS.
Jan is so much fun to work with. She's one of the Diva's so we get to see each other often.

Jan insisted that if I took her picture, she had to take one of me too.
I announced about 6 weeks ago that I would love to have anyone join us in making the Star Crazy BOM from The Quilt Show. The response has been wonderful! We now have 27 in our group and I receive e-mails almost daily with people interested in joining along.
Everyone and anyone is welcome!

Feel free to e-mail nedras@mstar.net
One of the requirements is that you join (or are currently a member of) The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. This is necessary to be able to download the BOM patterns each month.
Membership is only $42.95 a year, and not only can you download two BOM patterns, but you can watch their shows, receive updated newsletters, etc.

Looking good so far and a good plan to have a quilting buddy to work with... can't wait to see how it is going to turn out.

You need to read my comment on the Star Crazy Log. That will explain it all! I am jealous!
