SO which is your favorite???



Hmm WHY do i always begin my posts with SO...I can hear my 7 & 8th grade English teacher Miss Parrish..Redundant Redundant!! Dead WOOD...oh well


I printed four of this picture and cut it up to get the next quilt pic...I started the center star and corner starsr two years ago...and thought it was about time to knock out the top....the small LeMoynes have also been done about that long....

OH funny Story....my niece Clara saw me sewing on the small stars...They were piled HIGH on the coffee table. She has a small lunch box that i had given her...when she got home she also had some of the stars...well ALOT of the stars...her mom asked her WHAT was she doing..she said she had to sew:> H0pe she didn't get into too much trouble!!

Here's the thing....I want you to vote...which is your favorite??? The big lonestar is sewn together as are most of the insets HOWEVER if i go with ONE i will
have to make a few more of those small 6" le moyne stars...about hmm 14 or so more...or I can just make 14 half stars and I should have enough to go around the corner lonestars....


The Center!






I think i like the this one best BUT...I made this pic by literally cutting and pasting a printed picture together....the colors are off...BUT you get the idea!! Its actually MUCH brighter like the first two pics..

there are a couple of other versions...sorry the pics are not better...the cat showed up to play in the blocks when i spread them on the living room floor...oopsey!!

this one has the corner stars sashed...and blue insets for the smaller stars...


this one is hmm its the one i cut up to make # 1...lol...no voting for this one. this is actually closer to the real colors...

BYTW this will finish out with two borders at about 110 inches give or take an inch or two...the back is on order from hancocks paducah...should be here by the time i get it done so i can zoom zoom zoom and quilt it!!

I like it without the little stars in the 4 corners. When you add them, it is too busy. Is this Kaffee fabrics?? love it.

Funny, I am also in the middle of a Kaffe quilt! Here is a thought for you: try taking your corner stars and putting the large star on the outside of every corner and the small blocks of stars in each of those corners to the inside. IMO it will give you better cohesion with the small star blocks in the side triangles. Does that make sense? Would love to see a pix of it with the corner blocks rotated that way.
