    I am overwhelmed at how beautiful your block is. If my house was not full of my DD and her wonderful family on their way to being transferred to England, I would want to attempt it.

    I like all the different suggestions but agree that your best bet is to make some of them and see how you like them together.

    Was it really hard? I am not very adept at paper piecing!!

    That is an absolutely GORGEOUS quilt... I wish I would have made something like that..... I'm jealous... Don't change anything on it.... You have made a PERFECT quilt top... now continue to quilt it, and then hang it up... (I have 2 cats that have absolutely RUINED the quilt top I had on my bed... From now on, I only do wall hangings... Diana.

    No, I don't think it was very hard. I've done a fair amount of PP. If you set your mind to it, you can do it. That's how I taught myself.

    Your individual block is beautiful, when put in a quilt via Photo Shop it is breathtaking. When I first saw the block it reminded me of a "bird of paradise".

    I agree that you need to continue with the making of more of these blocks. Once you get 4 - 6 done, you can play with them to see what setting you like and how big you want the quilt. They could certainly be turned on point and have "plain" blocks in between. Even with the straight setting, you could put "plain" blocks between in order to break up the blue and make the block stand out. And as others suggested, there's always sashing. Any way you work it, it's a beautiful block and will therefore make a beautiful quilt. (PS: There is a book called Sensational Settings by Joan Hanson that has some great ideas for putting blocks together. Maybe you can find it at your local library?)

    That would be so pretty...or if you think it's too much, you could put a plain block of a slightly lighter blue or just white between the blocks. That would let the pieced blocks shine out!! :-) I llike it a lot!!!

    That's beautiful. Thanks for sharing. I love the photoshop picture allowing the secondary patterns. It makes a beautiful block into a beautiful quilt.

    From SewSassy: I love it!!!! I would make the first border in red/narrow width to make it really pop and then wider border with the blue print. Really crisp and happy.

    What movement - will be beautiful when it is finished and quilted - many, many options for the quilting...adding some white in the border will enhance the quilt - just my opinion.

    Your block is beautiful. And, with jillaine's photoshop picture you can see the whole quilt will be beautiful too. I HAVE to get photoshop! That is so nice.
    I would love to know what the name of your pattern is.
