Default U.F.O. surprise

I was up on my step stool to get a batt down for a lap quilt when I spied a box on the bottom of the batt pile. Hmmmm, what could that be? I opened the box and had a good laugh. Here is my sample from a colour exercise from at least 10 years ago! I think I will add a row of tulips in sme of the same star colours to the top and bottom to make it into a lap size quilt top. What do you think, tulips or different stars?image.jpeg

If it were me I would add different stars, but it is your quilt.

Think stars would be a lovely way to enlarge it. Such perfect points...I'm in awe!

Guess I am outside the box, but I think tulips would be gorgeous!

I like the idea of tulips but just can't visualize them with the stars. That's going to be a beautiful lap quilt. I love stars & love black in quilts and love bright colors. This quilt would be perfect for me! Need my address?

if the tulips will be made like the stars, they will look good in the quilt.
