    Lets play pick the background for the Lone Star

    Making this mini lone star. I originally planned it with the darker center of the star and the lighter background (you can see in the audition the pieces are already cut). Since then I bought a new blue fabric and it just happened to be sitting on my cutting table waiting to be laundered and I thought I'd audition the star on it.

    So here are the four versions with the star flipped one way then the other, and the two different backgrounds.

    Forgot to mention - they're not sewn together yet. They were, but I had to rip them apart and fix some seams because I had a big ripple in the middle

    What do you guys think? The first pic was my original plan, but I'm not so sure now.

    Thanks for looking!

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I vote for #4~~ The dark blue background really sets it off.
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    I prefer the light background -- it really makes the star stand out. As to the layout, I think I like # 2 best (with the dark blue toward the star points).

    Whatever you decide, it's going to be beautiful!

    It's hard to pick, but I think I like #2 then #3. This star is TINY, isn't it.

    I think #4 gives the most contrast & lets the star stand out more.
