I used this challenge to spur some creativity designing Quilts of Valor. It was fun taking a star and merging it with itself several times. I experimented with color to see if I could create a 3D effect, but I just couldn’t get the colors right. The only problem with this quilt that I’m still working on is the setting triangle–it’s a little large. I may have to un-explode one of the stars and add another border to make the size come out within Quilt of Valor’s requirements.
