First completed star

Here's the first block in my Wonky Star baby quilt.  I am using the little tutorial from Victoria's Silly BooDilly Blog Wonky Star Tutorial, but since I am using two different sizes for my star centers, I had to alter dimensions to make each overall block the same size.  Though it's a girl's quilt, I am going with gender-neutral colors (blue and brown, but also pink, red, green and yellow), but settled on a theme of Flying Objects.  These objects mostly include birds, butterflies, dragonflies, and bees.  I have also thrown in a couple of  less obvious flying objects, like pigs and monkeys (as in "when pigs fly" or "when monkeys fly out of my butt"). 

It's nice to be sewing again, and I love being able to do quilt after quilt, and each one is so different!  Of course, even if I decided to do the same quilt pattern, size, and fabrics, it would be so unique- but I won't be doing a repeat quilt pattern for a while, I think, as there are just so many I am excited to try!
