DWM~ Plans for HST's

Morning quilty friends.  I'm still plugging along on the Flippy corners quilt.  A few more blocks were made over the long weekend.   The adorable little 5.5"  twinkling stars have been the highlight of my weekend. However I've barely made a dent in the basket of bonus HST's.  But this seems like a good stopping place.  So I started playing around with a few setting ideas for the blocks.


Using only 8 blocks is a bit of a design challenge.  I came up 10 different layouts for the blocks.  How about a peek at a few of the ideas?  The design below really makes those twinkly stars shine.  The background fabric would be linen left over from another project.


Oh but I'm a real sucker for the white background.  Simple, and the stars still shine.


Maybe a table runner ....lots of room for quilting.


Decisions, Decisions....I like them all.  Which one would you make?

  1. What adorable star blocks! I like the setting with the white.. second one. I can see some of your gorgeous applique in the middle. I'm glad you are getting time to sew this weekend. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with using these cute blocks.

  3. I love the freshness of the gingham. And the way it is square when the stars are on point.

  4. I like the middle one. If the top one had a white background then I'd like that one more. Now waiting to see what you put in the middle :)

  7. I'm torn between the first setting and the table runner. These blocks are sure pretty and the linen looks great with the white.

  8. I love the table runner idea, but with white background and if you had enough material to make one large star for the center...I would make that in a second!

  10. Very pretty stars. I'd probably go with the first layout, but I'd have to add something to the center.

  11. I think I'd go with the first one - I'm a sucker for a block on point. If you are really taken with the white background maybe you could switch up the linen for white...

  13. Oh my goodness I just love these fresh little stars they remind me of little watermelons, or some cool mint with some watermelon or strawberry jam. I love all of your ideas, these sure are precious....thanks for sharing.

  17. I like the on point version or the table runner. You could add fancy quilting or even some applique in the center.

  19. Beautiful sawtooth stars! I like either of your first two options, and I'd add applique in the center. But I'm sure whatever you decide will be lovely!

  26. I like the linen look for the background and would probably go for option one....but then I'm not that great at quilting yet so if I was I ight go for the runner to show off the skills.

  27. Hard decisions...i really like them in a square...I guess it depends how ya want to use it. I love your gingham centers!!

  28. I love your star blocks and I especially like the top one. I'd like to see a 9th block with the star in reverse fabrics. :)

  29. I love the idea of that table runner. It would be fun with decorative quilting or some applique in the center. The fabric makes me think of summer time picnics. :) So bright and fresh!
