This look great. I like the star shapes but also the other patterns they make with the cream fabric. It would look good just as a piece on its own. Fantastic work!

Those are the only diamonds I would own lol (country girl here hehe)
That block reminds me of a quilt I TRIED to do when I was a wee thing.. it was solid colors ,,brights! My mom found it in her stuff and I should take a pic of it and send ya!! it wasn't a star just blocks
