    I agree! I am a BIG fan of anything blue.I love both patterns in this arrangement. If you change your mind & don't want to keep this, just let me know (HEE, HEE)!

    I like the visual effect. You said "stars", but I saw 3D blocks. Finally saw the stars. It's beautiful! and such great work

    Your quilt is going to be awesome. I love this pattern. What is this pattern called?
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I love your Stars and Tumbling blocks. I too love the color blue, in whatever flavor! LOL! What is the name of your pattern or, are you just winging it as you go along? Either way, it is beautiful!

    There is a "Not your Grandmother's Tumbling Blocks" book by Marci Baker. All made by strip piecing and then cut into triangles. I am beginning one soon. Love your blue and white one!

    Thanks everyone, you are all too kind. It will be a slow process but I will post pictures when I finish the top.

    That is so cool!!! I did a similar pattern, but had the scrappy fabrics in the star, and the white in the blocks.....Your eye sees lots of stuff, that's for sure!! I had quilted mine (but then, all i do is hand-quilt!! )
    my name is becca and i'm a quilt-a-holic :-)

    Wow i have yet to see this arrangement for stars. Your piecing, color choices - all beautiful!
    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.

    Noone in my 3 guilds think someone is crazy for doing hand work. Am I lucky or what??? I areallly love Woody's stars.

    Love it! Love it!! Love anything with blue. You might try thrift stores or even look at fat quarters in several stores....
    Love stars too. I'm making star blocks for a GS graduating in 3 yrs. His brother the next yr, along with a GD. So I'm starting now, little at a time. Boys are hard to figure for but girls, no problem......

    This is wonderful, i really like the way you have formed the blocks between the stars. Very impressive. I am making a blue and white dresden plate quilt at the moment and so enjoying the fresh colours. I am hand piecing them onto their white background. So rewarding doing handwork as well.

    It's very pretty! I never SAW the stars til I re-read your post! lol I only saw the blocks, but maybe that's because I so want to do a tumbling block quilt.
