Colors are striking. Being a beginner, I'm always amazed at what colors together make a beautiful quilt. Great job.

Amber this turned out so stunning!  No one could ever be down with a piece like this in their room.  Will add sunshine on the cloudest of days.

Amber2009,

This stripe was meant to be part of your Secret Window. The green works well too with the "star"; it appears to twinkle.  nteresting how everyone so far is making their Secret Window their own.  Now was that stripe all that you originally thought to use as your Fabric #9?  Sure you have more for the binding!

I love your quilt!  It is beautiful and happy.  The black adds pop and the green adds sparkle.  Love it.

Yes that was my #9 and I have plenty, had 3 yrds. And no idea why I had that much. The stripe was already in my stash so put it to use on this one.

Amber2009,

Glad you had more of that stripe.  Cutting it on the bias to get those stripes showing "movement" might be a nice look.

It is interesting how different contrasts and different colors makes each person's quilt so unique. Some colors blend to make the star block and surrounding blocks look like a flower and some contrast to make the star stand out and look more like a mosaic tile.  I like the dark #1 fabric in this quilt.  It makes the star stand out.  The stripe ties every thing together and a diagonal stripe border would sure finish it off. (hope you like working with bias)
