|There should be more than enough here!|
I had been sewing the blocks one at a time and that was just not working - it was way too time consuming and tedious frankly. So, I went on a sewing blitz and made literally hundreds of 2" hsts - chain pieced one after the other - and now I think I have plenty ready to go.
After I made all of these hsts I made a couple more blocks but they were still being sewn block-by-block and it was STILL taking a long time.
As I made my hsts I pressed all of the seams toward the darker fabric and when I sew them together into the flying geese units for the star points one seam has to flip for the seams to butt together. That means I needed to press every single flipped seam individually as I added the segment to the block....grrr. I finally came up with the plan to chain piece the star points randomly into pairs and that has allowed me to quickly press the flipped seam.

As I was making the 4 patches I remembered that I had made a lot of blue 4 patches for my Blue Cheese quilt and I thought I might have some leftover so I went digging around and I found these.
