I am making my Halloween Bounce Stars scrappy, within each of five color ways. I have fabrics in black, orange, gold, green and purple. I found that if I used a selection of lights and darks in each star, the stars seemed to "sparkle" more than if I stuck to fabrics all the exact same tone. Use of a variety of scale in the prints give the stars more texture and interest as well I think.
I have no idea how many total fabrics I used in these blocks! I kept going into my color coded stash bins and plucking out "just one more" fabric in each color for the blocks.
Maybe a few more golds? What to choose, what to choose?
You may also notice that the stars in the two blocks shown in the photo above are two different sizes. Hmmm, how is that going to work, you may ask. You'll see!
