What are you most proud of? I found the arrangement in a New York Beauty book and used the stars in one of the layouts. Plus I had to add the top row as I had extra star pieces and added a bit of "fudge" factor material. The black squares are actually a dark maroon (tone on tone) and is the same as the second border around the middle star. What advice would you give someone starting this project? These are really a beautiful block and with practice and perseverance the points can all be perfect!
