Actually, they're purple and blue and black stars. Here's another repetition quilt I've been working on -- nine patches made with four-patches, and maverick or wonky stars. I deliberately went for the muted mediums in this project, and I used some some truly ugly light prints from the 80s. I wanted the stars to pop, and I think they do, plus the nine patches make a nice diagonal across the quilt. This is intended as a throw quilt for an amazing elementary school teacher we've had for the past five years, and I'm planning some words to go around the outside, and I'm going to back it with a nice cuddly flannelette so she can have a nice nap under it after a hard day at school.
