Hidden Stars

The name of the Marti Michell Block-of-the-Month (from 2005) is "Hidden Star Sampler." These are blocks 12 and 8. Th speckled blue actually has violets on it, very pretty up close! The pattern calls for the star blocks to alternate with fussy-cut roses from this fabric:
Although it's pretty, it's a little too frou-frou for my taste, especially since I want this to go in the master bedroom. DH can tolerate only so much frilliness! When I'm ready to put the final layout together, I am planning on solid blue squares...wonderful blank spaces for custom quilting! I hope I can do it justice.

Hi! Your blocks are beautiful! And honestly I agree with you using blue squares in stead of the roses fabric. (do you have enough of the roses to use it as a backing?) Looking forward to seeing this progress further:-)

Look at all those pointy points and those nice flat intersections. Impressive.

The blue that's in the corners of the blocks? I was trying to visualize this with those big floral blocks - I can't see it. I think I'll like it better with blue. The two blocks you have finished are great.
