In 2009, The Quilt Show had a block of the month that I loved, Stars for a New Day, designed by Sue Garmon. I gathered fabric for it (initially from stash, but supplemented), but had too much on my plate to actually start it. But I saved the patterns for it and looked at what other people were doing, and now I am actually starting it!
Mine will be blue and white. The setting triangles were my starting point for fabric color. This is my first feathered star, and I must say that Sue Garmon's instructions made it pretty easy, relatively speaking
