BOM March for Modern Quilt Guild

The March block for the Modern Quilt Guild was to be based on the Moda Candy Stars quilt.
 (Moda tutorial)  It is wonky star but I did not do wonky since January block was wonky.  I drafted out the star with the four patch center and used the Flying Geese x4 No Math Ruler to make star points. I did have one inset (Y) seam because I forgot and put together both of the small stars instead of following my pattern and sew the bottom star in halves in a row.  But the block came out 12.5" so all measured as it should.

Stars In the Sky

With "spring forward" the stars in the sky seem to come later and later.  The stars for the BOM of the FW Modern Quilt Guild however are shining on the design board.  The BOM...half square triangle star.  I love these colors!

Really wish the camera would capture the vibrance of the colors here.  They are in real life very bright against a brown that is so rich it makes me swoon.  Moving through the year I will love being with these colors.  YES, colors do make us feel deeply.  What is the color(s)that bring out your swoon?
