    If you make the Stars bright yellow and the diamonds black you'd have a really interesting secondary pattern.
    Yes, I will really want to emphasize the secondary star colors!!! So it will be a 3-color quilt so to speak. I love layered looks. This layout gives lots of possibilities!

    :D

    The same thing happened to me N2 when I did this one..

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-48482-1.htm

    As you can see I had to go back and fill all those hole in lol..

    Then the other one I did I just added a triangle to four side and that made it a square and then you can join side by side and still have the Kaleidoscope .

    I just saw this. What would happen if you laid out seven in a wreath and one in the middle?

    If it's true that we learn from our mistakes, then I'm going to be a genius someday. Carry on, make the best of it, I'm sure it will turn out wonderful. Yes applique it down to background blocks maybe add some sashing, and voila....

    However it gets done, it wil be fabulous. The textures in all the little florals makes a very inviting, happy and vibrant appearance. Love it.

    You could always applique this to a solid piece and title it "just one of those days!"

    It would be cute!
