Hexie Friday - More Star Flowers

I finished the orange and almost my new blues.
You have seen this little bear before.
But she's sitting...
on one of my new little end tables with a pullout for coffee.
Here's the way I really live....what a mess.
My good bedspread is in the corner of the room.
I pile up on the backrest to do my hand sewing.
You can see my black stocking gansta hat on the right with my cereal bowl for my dry Cheerios.
And of course Elly.
Here's my grand dog Lucky.  She has decided in her older age that she no longer wants her picture taken and is going to hide in her box.
Poor puppy has been overexposed to the camera.

2013 Starburst PPing QAL

Block 5a

Block 5b
Wow the colors are really the same......hmmmm.
These are from Little Bunny Quilts QAL
I added another bundle of French General to the mix thinking it would work because the reds are exactly the same and each block has some red.  Well all together the two bundles do not look good together.  So what will I do if I sew (sing) out of tune......Maybe I need a little help from my friends.

You can see my problem on My Flickr.  If you have a moment take a look, and give me your thoughts.

Hop over to Flickr and see all the different versions of these blocks.
My last two blocks didn't come out 12 1/2 unfinished....yikes.
