    Well, I undertook this project as a back to my DS's quilt and I'm so disappointed in my results. I really like the block itself, but not in the colors I chose. I think it's the ugliest I've made yet. :oops: The background material I used was much too busy, should have chosen plain. Sooo, will put on the shelf until I can buy more plain green, then I'll put them together and use for something, don't know yet.

    I think I'll just stick to a non-pieced backing for his motorcycle quilt. It was just too big of an undertaking at this time.

    Win some, lose some.

    Weren't you going to add sashing to this to break up the busy fabric?

    This is going to be a great quilt. I like it paired with orange. Orange and blue, how can that be bad? Persevere and let us see what emerges.

    I dearly love the star pieced blocks. I think you are right about not going well with the other fabrics. The right fabric will come along and the stars will pop!

    I think your idea of something more plain between the star blocks is a good idea. I think the stars are fine, I would probably use a light yellow like you used in the star blocks, maybe a marbled one. Just my thougts. I'm sure you'll come up with something.

    Thank you for your encouragement, in the end I think I was reaching a bit past my stash for the right colors to incorporate. I'm waiting til tomorrow to go to the store, something is bound to show up there :D . If not, I'll put it away for another time.

    Sometimes I push myself too hard to complete things much too quickly. Patience is a virtue.
