Shellyp, we need a mix of simple to complex stars to make our quilts beautiful. Mine is a simple star. :D

My Star is a simple one, too. After seeing all the beautiful ones, I was a bit worried that mine might be too plain. But what Jstitch said is true. We need the "simple" ones to make the others shine even more and to give your eyes a place to "rest" between the blocks. I haven't put a picture of mine, yet, but they are all done. I took a pattern and modified it.

That makes me feel better. I just felt like maybe I got in over my head.

Shelly, I really think the simple stars are the prettiest. I like to make myself do something challenging for these swaps so I learn something. Buy...I'd take a quilt of simple stars anyday :lol:

I am going to do a second set and it will be a simpler star, not that my first one was real elaborate ! I mainly want to send in 24 blocks so I can get a better share of all these gorgeous blocks

Melissa, I am No. 11, its taken me some time to get these done, but I have cracked it and am blazing away now. I know what you mean about doing 24, if there are 30 in this swap then we stand a better chance of getting a really lovely selection. Wonder if I can make another 12.

Watch this space LOL

Melissa, Someone asked me this question early on in the exchange, when we didnt have as many participants...and I had to turn them down,

So, Im thinking its not fair to change the rules now and let you do odd numbers.. but you can do as many multiples of 12 as you like...
