Citric Starburst



I have been adding to this block over the last few days. Love the colours but not sure where I will go from here. I have used all of the navy fabric. Perhaps some more stars.

I love the scrappy strip around the block! Full of possibilities!

Very eye-catching block, I really like the scrappy border too.

Brenda said...

it's really fun. how big is it? where do you think the block wants to go?

Wow! This is really spectacular. The preciseness of the borders and stars is really complemented by the wonkiness of the central block... the whole piece really has great balance. :-)

It's so neat! All those pretty pieces.

Thanks for your kind comments. The piece is 55cm or 21 1/2in square at the moment. I really dont know where it will go from here but had been thinking of orange stars. This is the first time I have tried something like this. Most of the inspiration came from people on this blog site but I have been doing wonky stars this month for block lotto so decided to include some of those as well.

I love it! Great borders!I like the idea of orange if you add another border.

That scrappy border makes it sing. I like the idea of making it bigger still, and stars sound like a good idea. :- )

Stunning! What a creative combination of elements. Love those stars.

Oh you could just keep adding all kinds of scrappy borders......I like the way the star border gives the eye a little place to rest.....but that is not to say a whole riot of colors to follow wouldn't be spectacular!

Happy sewing
