Color Your World Red

My friend M-R over at Quilt Matters has challenged herself and others to experiment with color this year.

Every month we are to work with a different color.  January was RED!  One of my favorite colors!

I decided to challenge myself to make monochromatic star blocks every month.  Each star will be different but will measure 12 inches finished. I am hoping to make a sampler quilt with them all at the end of the year.  

Here is my red star!

It took me a while to get it right and I did change the fabrics around a few times but I love the end result!

If you want to see what others have done with the color red please head on over to M-R's.

  3. love the way the block looks transparent in places.. good job....
