    Still in pattern format.... I've started cutting out and made one block just so I can see the colours working together.

    And they are stunning! :-) (said with total modesty of course!)



    This is the fabric for the border and the very centre star. I've had this for a long time, never knew what to do with it but always loved it. Have simply pulled each colour out for the rest of the quilt, in moda marbles mainly, with one handspray.

    This is the pattern, the background pink is a little softer than it appears, but the other colours are fairly accurate. Very strong bold colours.

    This shows the colours as being a bit duller, I can't win! :-)

    The moda marbles are the exact colours in the mottled fabric. I also have the very light green, and the very dark purple, they're here somewhere. May add those in a thin border.

    Never mind I just went back and looked and I see the HSTs now. I have used this in a smaller design but never actually made one yet.

    Yours is very stunning indeed!

    It's all half square triangles. It's very clever! :-)
