Radiant Star BOM - Block 2

I finished the second block of Carol Doak's Radiant Star BOM tonight.  Unfortunately, the block ended up finishing 1/2" larger than it was supposed to.  I'm not quite sure how that happened since I printed it out the same way that I always print off my paper pieced patterns, but it looks like I'll have to re-do this one.  I'm not too devastated that I have to re-do it since I'm not crazy about the dark red on the outside.  I think next time I'm going to put the baby blue on the outside and the brown on the inside.

And here are both the blocks together.  I'm not that crazy about the second block since it's not very star like and is more flower like in my opinion.  You can see the size difference in the photo too.

And I leave you with a cute picture of the new kitten that we have officially named Misty.


  1. It's a pretty block but I agree with you in that it looks more like a flower than a star. Odd how it finished larger.

  2. Your block looks wonderful, but I must admit I like "Misty" much better....grin....soo cute and cuddly.

  3. Woops! Hope it's an easy fix. Misty is adorable and makes me melt inside.
