    I am making a quilt for SIL and she wants purple so my plan is: the center is 50 X50, I will add a section of star points in the reverse color purple as main color and red accent colors, then a border of the purple floral and if I need an overhang I will make star blocks using the floral purple as center and star points from the other fabrics finishing with a purple border of some type. The pattern is Aspen Feathered Star from Fon's and Porter's Love of Quilting Sept/Oct 2008

    That's lovely - I usually don't think of red and purple together, but you sure made it work!

    Nice calming beige really balances the bright center. Looking good!

    I never cease to be amazed at how each additional fabric in a design creates a whole new look...such fun...and so pretty!

    The next section will be star 'arms'/ points in the reverse color- a medium purple center with light purple and pink/red half squares on the outside. I will either use the yellow background or a cream with a hint of purple. A border will follow of the triangles, not sure of colors and then I will see what size and if I need more or not. I have a pattern for star blocks thatt are similar to the large star I will use those for overhang if needed.
