Star Crossed

The deliberate placement of light, medium, and dark prints creates the strong diagonal effect between the star blocks in this wall hanging. Dark reds and browns from Heather Mulder Peterson's Cottage Charm collection for Henry Glass & Co. add weight to the borders and star block centers, while pastels add softness.
