Beat the Blues Day 2

One of my #8 UFOs is a pile of birthday blocks from an online group many years ago. We got to choose our color preference and everyone made a lemoyne star variation in those colors.  I wasn't sure what to do with them but I think I have a plan.

They are arranged like this:

The sashing will be 3 piece rails in assorted colors with 9-patch cornerstones. I saw this quilt photo last year that I'm using for inspiration. I'm not too sure how it will look with the white rail fence strips right next to the blocks with white backgrounds. We'll see how it goes. 

I also started quilting Mary's cross quilt. More photos tomorrow.

Hey, I wonder which of those I made? I also have black & white birthday stars, but thought I had only 12, and made a sort-of plan for them just recently.

Excellent layout--you really did well balancing the black backgrounds and the brightness/darkness of the stars!

The stars are really pretty - look forward to seeing them come together!
