    Gee friend, I probably should not have read your post, because I went to the site you listed and now it looks like it is going to cost me $$$. I found several things I really do need, and not just want. I am glad you posted the site, because I found some fab. sheets that are listing as softer than the June Taylor sheets I already have and had planned to use in my two memory quilts, plus the bubble jet set for the sheets. Has anyone used any of these miracle fabric sheets and bubble jet set for them?

    I love the block. Can't wait to see the finished quilt. You have to finish it now that you have tempted all of us with the block and we know what to expect. Waiting for the finished pictures.

    I posted last night about my fifty states quilt I am making using crayons, and I will be using the fifty stars from Carol Doaks book for the back of my quilt, but doing the blocks in crayons and not fabrics. Very interesting how it looks done up in fabrics. I have tried to use the colors she has in her book with crayons. I really like the fabric you used better than the colors she has in the book.

    You can also tape the mirrors together and use them - I used mirrors this way when I was taching to help students see patterns in math and other subj. areas. This method really helps students that have problems with different subject matters. I know at one time you could purchase these mirrors at some of the office supply stores. But I think the photoshop works better, because you can do the entire quilt all at once and change it all about to whatever design you want.

    Dorian, your quilt is going to be drop dead gorgeous. Please keep at it and keep us posted. Loved all the input/pictures of how it "may" look. One of the posts clearly showed another pattern forming in your quilt. Maybe you could make these blocks (from 1/2 triangles) be a lighter version of the blue, etc. to tone it down some and may the stars pop. Noticed several didn't "see" the stars. Anyway, whatever you do...it's going to be fabulous:):) Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring us.

    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!!

    I wanted to say I don't think it is bold either. It is HAPPY. We Never have enough HAPPY in our lives...I love happy quilts. They make you smile!

    Pat

    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.

    I was just looking at the photoshop picture and had another idea. What if you stagger the blocks? Especially since the directions show that you make it in different sections. That way each star will be shown off. Just an idea from a not-very-artistic quilter!

    If you have windows 7, you have the snipping tool and paint program which can be used to create an image of your blocks repeated to what ever size you wish.

    I agree, I would want the stars to stand out more. Maybe white sashing, with a skinny red border. What ever you do, it will be gorgeous!

    That is an absolutely beautiful block - I love your colors and the fact that there are only a few different fabrics. I think that makes the block design more distinctive and gorgeous.

    I have been doing them. This one is also in one of Carol Doak's books. I've been working from there.

    In my mind's eye I saw the single block as a bit busy to make a whole quilt, but when I saw the photoshop version I'm absolutely amazed! This will be a STUNNING quilt. Please proceed with it.
