Star Surround Quilt A Long

This is a really great quilt a long hosted by Melissa and found here.  She has a great design with various size options.  I will be doing a combination of 2 of the size options which will end up being 48 x 64 and 12 fat quarters.  I have adjusted her cutting instructions to include the additional blocks I will be doing.  My fabric selection is shown below, it's the line Avalon by Fig Tree Quilts.

Still haven't decided on the background fabric but I will choose between Moda White Bleached 97, Moda Snow or Moda Porcelain.  Right now I'm thinking the Snow may be too close to the yellow above, but I will see.

I'm also thinking the colour selection would allow me to use as a Christmas quilt for my daughter's bed.

ETA:  Finished cutting.  I had to do extra because I'm using 12 fat quarters.  My background fabric is cut as follows:

  72 - 3" x 3" squares
144 - 2 7/8" x 2 7/8" squares
144 - 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" squares
