Oh My Stars!

That’s it. Miss Myrtle typically can’t keep her opinions to herself, is being most unhelpful today. That’s all she had to offer, “oh my stars!” Hmph.

I finished setting the star points into my background fabric and adding the borders. There’s more “white” space than I anticipated, and I didn’t care for my appliqués in the outer corners, so I flipped them and moved them inward.

But I can’t decided if I like them towards the outer corners, halfway, or closest to the star center. I’m leaning towards the latter. Your opinion is most welcome since the divine Miss M won’t give me hers!

Those are going to be quite the chore to appliqué on now, as I’ll have to manipulate the entire thing around all those little curves. It is a thirty nine inch square as it stands right now, seven inches bigger than was intended do to my border snafu.

    I kind of like them further out. It makes the star the focus.

    The furthest out version causes my eyes to see the illusion of perfection 🤗

      Haha… no perfection here! Thank you for helping me choose.

    I like them all, but furthest out is my favorite, seems more balanced.

    Another vote for furthest out.

    It’s gorgeous regardless of what you choose. I like the furthest out. I would suggest trying a mirror of the applique further in the corner, but I wouldn’t want to take away from the center.

      Thank you Debbie. I originally had the appliqués mirrored. I’m still playing with it. Just added some circles to the mix 🙂

      Thanks Laura. I’m sleeping on it… it just doesn’t look quite right to me.
