People have asked how I create so many blocks with just one pattern. Here are some blog posts I wrote as part of the QAL that will hopefully help you out:
This post talks about color and value. These are important to pay attention to in order to create a design that pops! Or not pop, if that's not what you are going for. :) It also shows how I used the coloring pages to come up with designs. http://fromblankpages.blogspot.com/2014/07/celestial-star-qal-color-design.html
This post talks about design and shows each of the blocks I created. You should be able to use these pictures for reference, and can transfer them to the coloring pages at the end of the pattern. I also share how I used value for picking fabric. http://fromblankpages.blogspot.com/2014/07/celestial-star-qal-fabric.html
