For Jackie in Kansas

Jackie requested star blocks in red, black, and white. Turns out I didn't have a lot of red options in my stash, although I love these black and white paisley prints as backgrounds. I love the design of the star on the left, but felt that my corners didn't match as well as I wanted, so I made the one on the right. Much better technically, but I wished I had enough of the darker red to have reversed the red and the red-and-white print.

Jackie, which do you like better?

Fabulous Theresa,
I love black, red and white.
I think the one on the left would be my choice.
Great blocks :-)

The colors are quite dramatic. My favorite is the one on the left too.

I like them both!!! If I had to choose, I guess I would go with the one on the left. But I like the one on the right too. Thanks for making them. I love the fabrics!

P.S.
I will be working on your block this week. I will post it when it is done. I have been gone and just got home last night. Can't wait to start!

Hi Love the blocks, they are both grea, but I think I have to agree with the others and say the one on the left. Well done. C

I love the one on the left too, but I like the polka-dots more! GREAT JOB!
