    Sorry I guess I should have posted new topic to let you know I wanted opinions this morning on new blocks.
    Okay ladies This mess kept me awake half the night. I am a little COD and my mind would not shut down, got to bed at 3am and I was up at 7.30 this morning saying ok I will try something different. I ripped those two apart and boy will I notttttt do that again. I go for the keep the ugly blocks and eventually I will make an ugly guilt Thanks for all of your suggestions and thanks for some being private I like all the feedback tho. My daughter told me this morning that this may not be such a good idea for me (since I want everything to be perfect and that is just not so in a not so perfect world Mom U are to hard on your self U need to enjoy the process not obsess over every stitch) So I will try to do this again with your help and understanding. WHICH OF THESE DO WE LIKE. Are do I keep trying.

    I definately like both blocks. The white background pops a bit more than the black but I like them both.

    Same here. Both blocks are nice, but I like the one with the white background better.

    You're not alone here. There have been many nights that I was "cooking" a quilt in my head all night long and had to get up early to work on it! And I guarantee you that by the time you've made 12 of these blocks, you'll be a master at it!

    i think you should a ton of both and alternate them to make cool designs for your quilt top! But, if I had to pick, I like the white background better.

    They're both great -- but I like the one with the white background the best! But our opinions really don't matter -- which one do YOU like the best??

    Well I kind of like the black but I love black. My daughter said white because she said do not give me black (she has a black and white dog and he sheds white hair :lol: :lol: ) she said make 12 of each and then you will get 24 different ones back. :roll: :roll:

    I prefer the black background. But that may be because I just completed a Friendship quilt for my daughter that used a black background with white swirls and stars...so your black block is familiar to me!

    After making 36 blocks I would recommend pressing your seams open. It makes it much easier to make the points. I ended up just outline quilting around the stars.

    What we like is an extremely personal choice.... I'm the same as your daughter, I avoid too much black purely because I have four black and white dogs (who only shed their white hairs of course) and two creamy coloured cats. So I prefer the white background.

    But... keeping in mind these are for the swap, I think either would do just fine, honestly! :-)

    Learning to pick what YOU like, and ignoring the rest of the world, takes time. ;-) Don't be too hard on yourself.
