    Introducing "Starshine & Rainbows"!

    This is the first time I've posted any of my work -- I hope you like it

    I wanted to learn paper-piecing so I found a bunch of "star" patterns (mostly at Quilters Cache) and just kept going. I love the rainbow brightness of the quilt. I'm trying to decide if I should sash them with a dark blue (like nighttime), or black (to make them really pop), or use a variety of the solids I used in the star blocks.

    This was going to be a graduation gift for one of my nieces who has rec'd a scholarship to play Div A Soccer in college (she's our "star"), but I love it so much, I may not be able to part with it!

    I love this. I can see why you can't part with it. Keep it. Any color you use will be beautiful. I think I would pick up a color from the quilt to sash . IMHO

    I'd do maybe 6" sections of each color you used in the quilt, sewn together, for the border, but instead of straight cuts, maybe do a diagonal cut for each one -- it would 'highlight' your beautiful stars. Gorgeous!

    Beautiful blocks! I would go with the dark blue sashing, keeping with the existing colors. That's just me, though.
