Splashes of Color–Star Quilt Blocks

I had a bunch of 5-inch square samples of Kona cotton solids and Moda marble colorwashed fabric.  I paired them together, along with 5-inch squares of batiks.  Using light/darks, I stayed within the same color family.  I made triangle squares out of all of them.  After pressing and trimming the squares, I laid them out, one color at a time, on my cutting table.  I sewed the five green blocks together, but the rows aren’t pressed yet.  [Please ignore any points that don’t exactly match! ;)]  I have the four rows of the purple and yellow/orange blocks made. Two purple blocks and three yellow/orange blocks.  The pink/red blocks are just laid out on the table.  There will be four of those.  I haven’t done anything with the brown and blue blocks yet.  I’m a long way from being done, but I’d like to share the beautiful colors with you.  Can you see the stars?
