    I agree. Before all you quilt wizards got going with your photo shop, I was sitting here with one of those little blue viewers that was mention early on. I was looking at the screen......glad family didn't come into the room. :o)
    What a gorgeous quilt this is going to be.

    That is gorgeous! I saw the pattern someplace else today. I'd like to know the name of the pattern also if you don't mind sharing the info.

    It's called Alaska, by Carol Doak. It's in her 50 Fabulous Paper Pieced Stars book.

    The star would be more pronounced with a very light alternate block between the stars.

    Oh boy, that is just beautiful! I love what the "helpers" did with photoshop. you might have already gotten this suggestion, but here I go with my two cents worth. Does this block lend itself to sashing? I could picture a darker royal or navy blue, perhaps a tone on tone to give it some depth. Whatever you do, it will be beautiful. If you don't like it, you can always give it to me LOL...

    I agree with everyone--it is beautiful and would be a shame if you did not continue now that we all had a glimpse! I prefer the two suggestions without the sashings. But, whatever you choose will be a stunner!

    if it looks too bold when you have finished the 12 + blocks, you could always use white sashing to break it up a bit. Please finish this it is beautiful

    That is a beautiful block. The colors don't seem too bold to me. An older quilt-making lady told me to make qults in bolder colors as they stay true longer. This was 40 years ago, and fabrics have changed, but I still hold to that rule.
