    I live on Kauai and thought that rooster looked local! Great photo and I never thought too much about how colorful our local chickens are.

I'm thinking of cutting 2 of the A diamond together with the black line in the fabric separating them, hoping this will reduce the seam bulk too.
    Sheridan D, Jen used your idea in the you tube video on the Marshall quilt. You google Quiltmania you tube channel, go to playlist
    and find Jen's Mystery quilt 2019. It is in part 1 about 16 minutes in. Sonia put me onto Jen's videos on that you tube channel.

    Spent most of New Year's Day going through my stash trying to figure out what to use. Finally decided to use my big box of Kansas Troubles fabrics. My daughter (Kyla V.) and I have had fun playing with fabrics most of today. Both of us are going rogue and using reproductions. What an adventure this will be. Not sure if I need to add anything else?

    I have been trying to decide what I was going to do with this BOM, but after looking at Month 1 instructions, watching the Quilt Show with Jen Kingwell yesterday (very, very helpful), and Barbara's blog and (not-so) live show, it finally came together! I am going to learn a new skill and hand piece a lot of it, but with some machine piecing. I am using Lori Holt's 30's reproduction fabrics and the Quilt Show star fabric as the background for the center and around the outer border. I am so excited!

    Since you love needle turn appliqué that would be the easiest way to make the center. You are correct in starting with a larger background square, then “trimming to perfection” after the Star and fans are sewn in place. Go for it.

    Either of those backgrounds would work, just depends which looks better with your Star and fans.

    These are two fabrics I'm considering for the background and the little fan "handles". Top is tiny rosebuds and the bottom one is stylised gypsophila (or baby's breath, if you prefer). I'm also considering stitching the star and its fans, cutting the background as one large piece, say 17 1/2" square, and appliqueing the completed star/fans on to that. I would then trim away fabric under the centre piecing and then trim back the centre to 16 1/2" unfinished. These fabrics are non-directional, so I think either will work quite well. My first love is needle-turn applique and I rather think it will be a lot easier than joining all those curves by machine or hand. Just a thought.

    Give that a try. If it works you cut out 4 seams.

    I absolutely LOVE Jen Kingwell's lollie fabrics! I absolutely LOVE Jen Kingwell! I was lucky enough to be able to attend a 3-day class with her last year. When I saw this was going to be the BOM for TQS this year, I knew I'd be jumping in! I have a few of the lollies left and will definitely be including them.

    Civil war repros are some of my favorites. This quilt will look great with them as these are traditional blocks. But it will look much different than Jen’s quilt. I encourage you to go right ahead and use them.
