This star block I'll admit wasn't my favorite! I didn't like the colors and the size was odd. It wasn't a square and not much of a rectangle either. I had it in a box to sent to Gladys over at the Iowa Pig Farm who takes orphans and makes them into quilts. Then yesterday, I spotted some bright purple that would possibly work. Not sure about the results. The star is pointy and the flowers seem soft and the green although it matches seems a bit stark in the photo. Up close though it isn't as unrelenting. But, I've quilted it and will sent it to Wrap Them in Love in Memory of Bev as the center block was in the box shipped to me from her stash. Isn't there something somewhere about new wine in old bottles--sometimes new cloth with old blocks just isn't the best use of time, but then who's to say, it is a bright quilt with the bright magenta backing and it washed up warm and snuggly.
