This block was kind of a pain to make, but the effect is really good. I am glad it came out well in terms of contrast, because if it had been a pain and looked bad, I would have been really disappointed.

I think it was a good choice to use the background fabric in the center of the larger star around the smaller star as it sets off the smaller star.

If you’d like to make one of these, here is the Star Sampler: Shelburne Star pattern. You can also find it in EQ7. Check out the Oh My Stars! Flickr Group to see all the other renditions of the final project. You can see all the posts on this topic by searching the tag “Star Sampler.”

  1. Aaaahhhh, I think this is my facorite so far, love the lime green and magenta? In the middle with the blues. Gorgeous block, such warm colors.

    1. Thanks! It is a great combination, isn’t it? sadly I don’t have anymore of the magenta, but I will dig around to see if I have something similar. I am pretty sure I have more of the green, just have to dig around and find it. I am ok if I don’t have more of either, because I think there is enough of both colors to create cohesion.
