Moving Right Along...

Going with the star idea seems to be best so am trying things out after cutting up the second half of the fabric so that I would have a total of 37 stars.  That puts me a bit short on hexagons but will see how it goes as it doesn't need to be a square quilt.  

I decided to go with chartreuse as the second color and that stays for now.  I may change my mind....

Kelly Green is the third color but it may become the second color with a darker blue as the third color.  Otherwise, the darker blue will be the fourth color.  Nothing is put together yet in this picture -- all sitting as triangles and diamonds on the design wall so that the spacing isn't quite right.

I decided I would sew in the triangle to make the star hexagon.  The outer triangles are not sewn in yet.  

The temp has dropped outside with an east wind bringing in a breeze off the ocean, so may go downstairs, turn on five seasons of Murdoch Murders (great Canadian show -- I got hooked watching it for free on Prime and liked it so well, I bought dvds of all the seasons -- the Prime version didn't have Closed Captioning which I needed for this show).  So I am now watching them again and getting all the subtleties of the dialogue!

After looking at it some more and actually piecing a couple of more stars (the chartreuse ones), I decided not to do two rows of the green but to intersperse the greens.  The next row I think will be blues and blacks.  I don't have a lot of the blue that matches so may have to actually purchase some fabric (shocking as I don't do that very much down here) that is a better match.  Haven't decided whether any red will creep in somewhere or not -- might just!
