These quilt blocks are made with my Star Point Blocks
They are all the same quilt block only the colors have changed from one to the next.

Here you can see how important the placement of color is in your quilt block. By changing the value (whether it is light or med or dark) you can change the look of the quilt block to a totally differant quilt block.

I will post the first quilt block and it's layout for you to see how they are laid out in rows. I am not going to post each layout. But if you have any problem seeing the placement of color and how to lay out any of the other quilt blocks just let me know and I will post more layouts. Once you get the idea tho you should be able to see the individual "Blocks" within each picture.

You can use a 2 1/2" template with my 4 1/2" scored template to make these quilt blocks into a 12 1/2" quilt block. You can order them free on my website.
They are free no postage needed.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask me!! I'll be happy to help.

Here you can see the progression as I changed the colors

I had to redo them. I tried leaving them the original size and letting the system cut them down to 600 but that was too big so I had to go back and downsize them. Sorry for the wait!!

This is the thrill of quilting --- SOOOOO many patterns, SOOOOOOOO many variations! Wish i'd started quilting when I was 2 yrs old....but then, I'd still not have enough time!

These are great. I think most people see the color first, and then look at the pattern. #5 and #9 are my favorite colors, so my eye would go to them first even though they are all the same pattern. This is so cool. Thanks for the tute.

I guess #9 is my favorite as I like the 5 colors best. It makes the various sections stand apart from each other.
I don't know why I ever put purple and red together in the last two. Not a combination I usually care for.LOL

I like #11 the best, but have to agree maybe not with purple and red combo. Let's put creme color where the pink or pupley color is.
