One More Star!

I need one more star!

I put together what I had done, which amounted to seven cute little stars.  Then I needed to figure out the layout, which was why I was fretting about my graph paper.  I knew what I wanted to do, but needed a little help with my placement measurements.

I finally put my hands on some 1/2" graph paper.  Then I cut some little 1 1/2" squares of paper to symbolize my 9-patch blocks.  Here we go ...
That was easy!  Then I moved the little squares one by one and drew in my stars.  I also drew in lines where the filler pieces will be.
From here it will be easy to figure out the sizes of the other pieces I will need.  I was getting a little concerned about running out of the blue solid, but as it turns out I will have plenty.  Now I will sit down and make that eighth star. 
I'm planning on using the gold in my border.  I hope that I will have enough of that blue floral to use too.  Wish me luck!

I love love love these stars. Is the AC fixed?
