How to See What Your Quilt Will Look Like Before You Finish It

Because I have never made that specific pink star block before, I am dying to know how it will look once I have a lot of blocks together. So far I have only one block made and I have a very limited amount of fabric -- just one jelly roll with 20 strips. I don't want to waste fabric making more if it's not something I will like.

So I took the picture from yesterday's post and imported it into Publisher -then I copied and pasted it until I had the number of blocks I would need.

Here is what it will look like when finished (which should be 42 x 42 inches):

It appeals to me. I really like how the corner stars form a block that looks like it was set on point.

Now I can begin sewing in earnest because I will like it when it's done. I won't have enough of the jelly roll fabric for all those stars. I am going to go back after work tonight to see if they have one more left. Last week there was just one left when I bought mine. If not, I will either scale down the size or add additional fabrics.
