When this you see...

I recently bought this pattern from my LQS.  It's "When this you see.."  by The Rabbit Factory.  Usually I shy away from teeny tiny pieces, but for some reason this pattern appealed to me. So, deep breath, and dive in!
First I raided my stash.  I've got a ton of deep, rich colours, so I decided to go with them.  I did purchase the cream fabric - there are two different ones, but the same shade with an embossed tone on tone pattern.  I'll probably add more to add richer creams into the mix.
Considering that the pieces finish at 1" or even 3/4" (ahhh!), I'm surprised how quilckly the blocks are adding up.  I only need 180 or so.  So far, I have 30,..... or so.
The first 9 I sewed together, but I'm not sure they'll stay that way.  Once I hit a design wall, I may unlink them and "scatter the stars."

I'm thinking I like the look of the checkerboard blocks to be scrappy, with the star blocks all the same to tie it all together.
The pattern calls for appliqued swags around a plain cream coloured border, but, there's lots of time to change that..
If you see me walking down the street looking cross-eyed --- just keep on walkin'
So, what are you working on?
