    Love the pattern, love the colors. It will be beautiful when you have finished it. Note "when" not "if". Go for it!

    It is so beautiful. I love the bright colors. It will be a stunning quilt. Can't wait until you have it finished and post a picture.

    There is a way to see what a single block will look like multiplied into many blocks.
    It is a little viewer made of plastic, it has a eyepiece you look into and the other end is multifacted plastic, made to imitate what a inscet's eye sees. It is clear with no color, but optically multiplies one image into many, all set in rows like a geometric quilt top.
    I use mine all the time, saves an enormous amount of time!
    They sell them at the shops in science museums, for one place, and maybe touristic novelty shops.?
    I am sorry, I do not know the name of the viewer or what it is known by...
    google your local science museum store...or if you are way way off in the boonies, ask the local high school biology teacher, if they have a catalog with one in it you can order from? and maybe thank them for their assistance with something nice!

    Poor baby! I am the one hard on quilts on my bed! Can't blame it on anybody else...and everybody in sight is going to throw their scraps at me...but because I WASH my bed quilt at least once a week I got an inexpensive twenty dollar one, to get ruined because of the hard wear and hung the pretty real one on the wall!
    Maybe you could do that too?
    Hey, I am a quilter! I have to have a quilt on my bed!
    What would my neighbors think if I didn't?

    Hi, Dorian, here is what 16 of them would look like (4x4):

    [img]http://i118.photobucket.com/albums/o...g?t=1300684777 [/img]

    I used Photobucket:
    1. upload your picture
    2. edit - crop it
    3. edit - layers - to make more and "attach them"

    Hope this helps.

    The pattern is Carol Doak's Alaska star from her 50 Fabulous Paper Pieced Stars.

    I love this block. It's going to be a huge amt. of work for a whole quilt so I'd suggest trying it in a table runner first. I sure love it. I love changing tablerunners all the time. Just a thought.

    Even if it is too bold, you could always put sashing between the blocks.

    I did not look and see the block. That is beautiful. You could still put a color sashing.
