I've been challenged again .. and I love it! Yesterday I went up to Iron River and did alittle shopping, and then stopped by at Laurie Jean's to pick up the rest of the material I needed for the African Storm At Sea quilt that I needed to finish. LJ and I had talked the last time I was there about helping her with a brainstorm quilt she had. She has all of the 50 states and their state flowers. So what I had to do was measure out the 4.5" to make the block around the flower. Then I had to cut all the other pieces to make the star around the main block. So I had to cut 400 of the white 2.5"sq material, 2.5"sq of the blue material, and also 2.5" X 4.5" of the blue. I had to trace a line to make a diagonal of the white squares so I could sew it straight. I completed one block to see what it was going to look like. One down, 49 to go! But its going to go fast.
UPDATE: I have had a few comments about the Star block.. I was excited about showing this block off, and out of my laziness.. I didnt press it fully and I got a hump in the fabric, but its all taken care of now.
