Star Quilt Block 5 Redone





Beautiful Block, but the star pattern just didn't show up good to me.
Here is how it looked with the others on my design board.
This is the new one. I think the star pattern shows up much better.
Block # 5 is on the far right. Doesn't it show up better?
I was not satisfied with the way Block 5 in the quilt along looked. The layout was good. I just didn't think the fabric showed the star as well as it should have, so I have redone it. I am happy with it now. I am trying to catch up. Now on to Block #6!!!

I agree...to much light color in the first one...so contrast.

I meant to say "no contrast". Perhaps I should read my comments some closer before sending them on their way.

You are right. Much better! Now take that first block and use it in a tote bag or pot holder, or something pretty to enjoy, because it is still pretty!

I like this one much better too and you are using my favorite color so I am really looking forward to seeing it all together. Very, very pretty!

I like this one too but as I am new at quilting I like all of them.

Hi Valerie,
Thanks for visiting my blog...I hope you do give embroidery a try. It is a very satisfying project to 'take along'.
My thoughts on the Star blocks...you should definately sash the blocks with a nice contrasting color to make them pop since it is hard to see them since the color values of the blocks are similar.
Ok that's my 2 cents!

Hi Valerie, Thank you for visiting my blog. I love your blog. I think your quilt along blocks are looking so good. Good call on #5 block, it looks more like a star now. :o) Have a great day.

Yes, much improved! I'm doing my first BOM with my local fabric store, and they are all stars so far, so I expect the rest will be also. So many possible star variations - it is astounding! Thanks for stopping by my blog.
