Thank you all so much for your comments on the Dreaming of Stars Blog Tour, and for coming up with some really fun names for my block.  Sewing is the easy part for me; naming the project is always the hardest.  I've narrowed down a couple of names from your brilliant suggestions, but still thinking about it.  Even though the winner of the fabric bundle was chosen randomly, I think there should be a separate prize for the first person who suggested the name I eventually choose.  More to come about that.    

If you missed any of the stops on the tour, stop by to see the star blocks at each blog (links below).  And be sure to visit Timeless Treasures' blog for a chance to win a 30-piece fat quarter bundle of the entire collection of Dream Basics.  It's just gorgeous!  The winner of the 30-piece bundle will be announced on Friday, January 24.    

Jessica Alexandrakis - Life Under Quilts    
Kim Brackett - Magnolia Bay Quilts  (You're here!)
Nicole Daksiewicz - Modern Handcraft
John Kubiniec - Big Rig Quilting     
Kimberly Einmo
And stop by Peggy's blog to see what she did with her blocks.  She used a dark background fabric, and her blocks are fabulous. 

And finally, the winner of the half-yard bundle of fabrics I used for my block is No. 38, Sandie at crazy'boutquilts.  Congratulations, Sandie!  If you'll send me your mailing address, your bundle of fabrics will be on the way soon. 

Thanks so much for participating in the Dreaming of Stars Blog Tour.  Hope you all have a great week!
