Star and Nine Patch

I had quite a bit of leftover 30's fabrics when I finished the Sally Post quilt. I went through my books and patterns, sewed a few blocks from different quilt patterns, then settled on this one - simply named Star and Nine Patch,, from Stashbuster Quilts by Lynne Edwards. I combined some of the left over 30's fabrics with some complimentary bits from my stash, and I had some novelty type 30's type nickel charms that I used for the inner points of the stars.

When I was putting up these blocks on the design board, it seems that whenever I moved one, to better separate colours, I ended up near another smilar colour. These blocks are less than half the total blocks, but I'm thinking that when I'm done and ready for layout, I may try to purposely lay them out in colour sections - red, pink, purple, orange, yellow, blue, green.
