    Help, I'm stuck. I've had this block laying around for about 2 years and I have no idea how I want to finish it off. Suggestions please.

    If you don't want to make more, put on a binding and make it a wall hanging.
    Depending on the size, you could put it on a tote, or make it into your own Round Robin, you could even go 'Christmasy' with it.
    Add more green, red, and white blocks around it? Lots of possibilities, and it is a beauty, norbanaquilts :D

    How large is the block?

    Clever way of seaming the white parts. That looks like it would make assembling the block much easier.

    You could put diamonds around the edge -

    You could use this as a center medallion for a larger quilt -

    You could put wide solid borders around the sides with a LeMoyne star in each corner -

    How large do you want to go? How much coordinating fabric do you have around?

    Size doesn't matter, I just want it out of the UFO pile.
    I'll have to go search the stash to see what I have to go with it.
    I don't quite understand what you meant by diamonds around the edge (I can be a little thick headed)

    Thanks everyone for all your help and ideas. I knew some brilliant mind on here will have the answer I'm searching for

    It would make a nice Christmas wallhanging if you just want to finish it this size.
    Maybe a couple of borders??
    Beautiful star!!

    Love your lonestar. It's a right of passage to have a lonestar UFO, isn't it? b/c I have one too :)
    I think you can do any number of things, but what ever you do, remember there's a lot of hard work in there. :) :) It's beautiful!!

    This is what I seen for borders when I looked at your center...Your center is much more pretty than any that I looked at to play with.
    This is worked up to approx 90X90
