WIP Confetti Rainbow Stars

Hello again! I'm all bloggin 2 days-in-a-row like a regular!

If you're looking for the SMS Giveaway, step right this way!

I've recently been exposed to paper piecing - thanks to the lovely and patient Karen. I don't want to say I've gotten "addicted," because that would imply that I'm good at it. Let's just say I've become "attracted" to printing out cool PP patterns that I see and cutting at them and stacking them on my window sill. (FYI there are a TON of freebies on Craftsy.)

Anyway, I came across this free pattern called Confetti Star, and decided to use some of my rather large pile of charm squares.

I intended to just see where inspiration takes me - which has meant a lot of time just staring at it.
Clearly, there was a problem. I wanted to keep the color wheel arrangement, but the orange & green didn't go well together. Luckily for me, I got a little treat in the mail yesterday!
After a good look through this gem, I spotted a quilt called "Squareburst" (which can also be seen on the Amazon sneak peek page.) Sidebar - how the HECK do you copy a pattern that doesn't actually fit on your printer??? I was struggling with that nonsense for way too long lol . 

Anyway, here's what I came up with. 
Squareburst Color Wheel
 and it fit right in!

now to stare some more and figure out the rest.. Linking up to WIP Weds @ Freshly Pieced. & Sew Fresh Quilts & WOW
