Asterisk Quilt Comes Together

I know you are all asleep right now, but I need you to wake up and look at this and tell me what you think.

I have good ideas occasionally, but I don't always know how to bring them home.

So tell me what you think.

I have these Asterisk blocks that need to get finished for May.  And they need one more buddy in black.  He will happen tomorrow, hopefully.  That will give me 8 of the big guys.

I created them myself after several tries.  I say several tries because I had to work out the problem with bulky seams meeting in the center.  You will notice that none of the seams meet in the center now. 

I worked that out.

And all the seams meet other places now.  And that is better than when it started out.  Believe me.

So anyway.

I was thinking that the Asterisks were plain and boring looking on white background, but that is all I had ever pictured them on.  Then I noticed a black dot fat quarter and thought that might be a nice center block.

Which led me to think that I could use more of that to go around the outside but I didn't want to buy more fabric.  So I looked around the shelves and found this.

And under that were these numbers.

I don't know if the scale of the numbers make them wrong for the Asterisks blocks. 

I like the numbers.  But I also like the quilt to be one that you say, what is your favorite color, red?  Purple?  Orange?

 Maybe it is all too much and I should go back  to all white.........


  1. You are opening me to new things and I love it.

  2. I like both. Just use the one you love

  3. The numbers print livens things up and makes it more playful which seems more in keeping with the I'm heavily in favor of the numbers fabric :-)

  4. Absolutely the numbers fabric! And don't try to get all the numbers 'right side up'--throw them in there any way the fabric needs to be cut! Makes it lively and interesting and FUN! Love this!

  5. Like the added interest��

  6. Numbers! No question.

    The masses have spoken
