Sometimes I just have to try things to see how they look. I imagined that Gwen's liberated stars, cut on the diagonal, with one of "Kathy's Blocks" (described in Gwen Marston's Liberated Quiltmaing II) in the corner would be great for the star border on my medallion quilt.
But oh, no. Epic fail! In my mind that half-star did not have an Art Deco look about it but, rather, a liberated look. My mind's eye needs glasses -- or something.
Now I'm going to fall back and punt -- try out another idea, or possibly two -- or more, however many it takes to make a border with stars.
I'm glad I didn't wait until next week to try out this idea!
I wish you a good weekend.
