I looked over the various layouts, and chose this one because it is the only one where all of the squares require only 3 colors. But when I began swatching up the 3 gorgeous colors, I realized that the colorwork just was not going to show up in three dark colors.
I ended up requesting a fourth color for a lighter background with green and purple stars, and used the darker grey for the border, with a wavey "ribbon" of green running through it (like the quilt below).

Although I decided to use the "Eight Pointed Star" block, rather than the block used in the quilt, I included suggestions in the book for doing an alternative layout with the "Double Friendship Star" (like the quilt). Many of the designs in the book include alternative design suggestions, as I hope crocheters will make the projects their own, and cannot wait to see what they will do with my designs.
