Still Seeing (and Making) Stars

This week I've added a couple more 12 inch star blocks to my collection. 
This year I participated in a birthday block exchange with a group of ladies who like 30s reproductions.  I asked for any 12 inch star block on a blue background. 

I want to make a queen-sized quilt so need 42 blocks total. 

Each week for the Choose Your Own Blockalong at Live A Colorful Life I've been choosing to make at least one star to add to my collection. 

This week I've added a Dandy quilt block and a Morning Star.  It looks like I used black in the Morning Star but it is actually navy blue. Not so sure it is in keeping with 30s fabrics but someone made me a birthday block with navy background so thought I would add at least one other block with navy so that other one wouldn't look out of place.
