Step #3 was posted for the "Oh say can you sew" mystery by Lisa Bongean. I cut all the needed squares, and decided to go with the "controlled" version by using the same neutral fabric in all 4 corners of the star blocks (instead of totally scrappy).
These are the first blocks sewn. I really like the effect of each block having the same neutral corners. I'm using up all the old repro neutrals I have in my stash and think that the more busy prints will add interest to the quilt.
