Laying these pieces out actually takes a little more thinking than I realized it would at first, because I want them to be balanced color-wise throughout the quilt, and I don't want them right next to a star with that same fabric.
To make that easy to achieve, I have started laying the stars out on flannel sheet on the floor so I can look at two rows at a time and then move the little squares around as needed. So far so good! And I think I'm ready to sew some blocks together and add the next row.
But that brings up another question! Should the 2 inch cornerstones go out into the sashing (or border) that I'm planning to have go around all of the stars? That would look like this below - and looking at this photo again, I'm thinking the squares would land in each of the corners as well - top left and right, and bottom left and right.
I think I know my answer to that question, but I'm curious to know yours!
Happy ScrapHappy Saturday, friends!
