Wonky Hidden Star

What if I change the grid on a Hidden Star block and create a wonky Hidden Star?

What if I use both the Hidden Star and the wonky Hidden Star to create a pattern?

This needs more variety.

What if I add a second color and a border?

There is too much purple and this could still use more variety.

What if I vary the purples and pinks and change the border to pink?

There is a nice balance of purple and pink but the border is crowding the pattern.

What if I move the border out and add a second pink to it?

This is better but the border feels a bit narrow.

What if I double the border width?

This is a better border width.

Is there too much pink now?

What if I add some purple back into the border?

I can't make up my mind. I think this one and the last one both work.

For more wonky blocks go to My Posts by Subject in the sidebar on the right and click on Wonky Blocks.


  1. I just found your blog... What If.... is going to be my new motto.
    I love, love the site and will spend many hours clicking on each of the sidebar items.
