Playing with Colors

Hidden Star Placemat

Today I thought it might be fun to take a placemat made with 6 Hidden Star blocks and see what happens when I play with how it's colored.


For more experiments using placemats go to My Posts by Subject in the sidebar on the right and click on Placemat 


  1. Wow, you are right, each one is so different, just with different colors and placing.

  2. Hi Wayne - these look so much like federation verandah tiles we have here in Australia - just lovely.

    I am always amazed at how much color can affect the structure of a design by changing the visual emphasis.

    I looked up federation verandah tiles on the internet and I see what you mean. A lot of them look like quilt blocks. I wonder if anyone who had federation verandah tiles at their front entrance ever repeated the pattern on their bed quilts.
