Pay homage or rearrange

My quilting stash of someone else’s almost completed projects keeps growing. These are basically quilts that could be finished with a few seams.

My latest acquisition poses a dilemma. The quilter completed several blocks with stars comprised of two fabrics: light and dark.

There are enough additional, partially sewn blocks to create several more. I could follow the same process and sew two fabric stars or…

So sometime in the future I will have to decide. Shake it up or not? Always a good question to ask yourself.
