No Purple Starbursts

My FQ bundle, Radiance by Dan Morris for QT Fabrics has 7 different patterns in 5 different colorways – turquoise, pink, yellow/orange, green, and purple.  I also purchase 2 tone-on-tone FQ in each of the colors with the intention of making 4 stars in each colorway, 2 from each fabric. When I made the first purple block I realized immediately there wasn’t enough contrast with the blue background. I made a star from the 2nd FQ and decided that the contrast works, but it is not vibrant enough to complete with the other stars.

I trundled off to the LQS where it was suggested that I use orange instead of purple.  I picked 2 orange FQs, but when I got home the thought of 4 yellow stars and 4 orange stars was too much.  Since I am only using 30 of the FQs from my bundle in the quilt, I pulled the tone-on-tone FQs from the bundle to make one star each – except for the purple.

There is at least one star from each fabric in the picture.  I think I’ve made at least one more star since this picture was taken.
