    A great pattern and a great idea. I'd do this one or the labyrinth star which is also nice and eye catching. Would make a great over-the-bed wall hanging, I think.

    Why not do a paper pieced tulip block? If you google paper pieced tulips there are lots of patterns. The creams could be the background and perhaps also in a checker board border. Sorry i couldn't send a picture but not sure the procedure from an ipad.

    What are the other colors in the room? Lamp shades? flooring? drapery? Dominant color in pictures? favorite accessories? You might pick up another color for your wall hanging from one of these that is already in the room and use it. I like your idea of the bird on a branch and flower but I think I would consider making it a triptych with a common border around all three instead of three usual quilt blocks. For me, that style makes a better wall hanging as it doesn't look like you've hung a table runner on the wall. Another idea you might like is to have a flower vase in the middle with one flower and 2 branches. Each branch going in opposite sides to the edge of the wall hanging with your bird sitting on it. You still have the three seperate sections but the design has been incorporated into a whole. If the birds don't look correct proportionally, you can replace them with leaves or different flowers such as bird of paradise. Your background of cream will show everything off so elegantly.

    It's the writer's "user name," like yours is MartiMorga.

    I like the Carpenters Star as well. There is also the Star Spin Strata. I purchased the pattern and soon will look for my combo of colors to make as a wallhanging over our bed to coordinate with bedding. There are several pictures/articles on our board - names a bit different, but the same item.
