Quilt Progress Report

I have been playing with my Smokey Mountain Stars blocks.  Here is what I posted on Design Wall Monday.

After looking at the design wall for a day or so, I decided I wanted to try something different in the center of the stars.  I cut a few black centers and this is what it looks like now.

I am really interested in opinions.  What do you think?

While pondering this, I decided that I need to get started on my Scrappy Trips Around the World that  I am going to teach in Las Vegas next month.  Here is the first block.  I am using lots and lots of batiks.  I can’t wait to get a few more blocks done.



  1. I really like the addition of the black centers. It seems to make the stars more defined.

  2. I think it needs the black in the centers. It makes it more interesting, and gives the eye a place to stop and rest.

  3. I like the alternating white and black centers. Really make the star point show so much better. Good thinking!

  4. The black center helps to make the stars pop. Like it!

  5. Your hexi quilt is coming along!!!

  6. Yep, those black centers really bring this to life. Good choice!


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
