Beginning of Charming Stars

Have you heard about the Charming Stars Sew Along that is currently being hosted by Terry's Treasures?  Each year, for the past couple of years, Terry has chosen a new pattern and a bunch of us just sew along!  As for me, I use them as leaders & enders to other projects that I've got in the works!
This time around, Terry chose "Charming Stars," a super cute, free pattern from the Moda Bakeshop.  The pattern calls for 3 charm packs and some additional yardage for sashings, borders and of course backing and binding.
For my version, I've chosen to begin with Moda's Odds & Ends (by Cosmo Cricket) charm packs.  I'm using a warm chocolate brown blender for the stars and sashing.  I cut a couple or extra 5" squares from a green fabric from Marcus Fabrics' Visual Effects line that will also be used for the outer border.  Finally, I'll be binding and making cornerstones with that pretty turquoise from the Raindrops Collection by Coral Tree Fabrics.  I had a backing fabric picked out a while ago, but I'm currently rethinking that.  Hmmm...

I really like the brown for your stars. It goes well with the colored pieces.

Love it! I think this is the first one I've seen with something other than white for the stars, and it's very striking.
