Looking at all these images of quilt blocks makes me want to start quilting again. However, it would be hard to select a pattern because I like most of them.

Star flower quilt block is so adaptable to so many fabric combinations!

I prefer the star flower quilt block because the focus is on the fabric, rather than the empty center.

Thanks for all of the pictures, they are all so good. I am trying to get my mother some more ideas for quilt pattern ideas. I will be sure to send her this link ! http//moresewforyou.com

These are all so pretty, I don't think I could choose a favorite! I love that they have such imaginative names, too.

Both stars are beautiful, but the Bright Hope Star block stirs my imagination. I prefer that and hope to make at least one when I get back to traditional quilting methods.

I love them all! When you look at the star pattern for inspiration you find it through out history. I think because the star is so versatile in the many ways you can create with it. A star can stand alone and be fabulous or it can be embellished to become more than just a star!

I like both, but my favorite is the Bright Hopes Star Block.

I prefer the Bright Hopes Star Block block because it is different and has a positive name.

I prefer the star flower, more of the block focused on the star and less of backround

I like both stars, but the Bright Hopes is my favorite. I love star blocks.
