    As others have said, this was harder than I expected. Not sure I would have patience to make a whole quilt top although I'm sure it would get easier and faster after a few more were completed.

    Fiddled with the color and this is better... still not quite right, but better.

    I'm having trouble with this to! I've never pp'd before and am thinking this is not a good beginner block!

    Agree that it is not a beginner's block. I have been working on it for days. I did find that using lighter weight paper helped me. At first I was using printer paper but changed to newsprint. Isn't it great to see all the nice sharp points that you get though.

    Beautiful color placement. The value contrast really makes it 3D-ish.

    Beautiful work. The star looks three dimensional.
