The bottom drawing illustrates how blocks would look set side by side. Squint when you look at that layout and some of the other value possibilities will become more obvious.
The quilt A Joyous Celebration contains a smaller evening star block without the nine patch center. Snowball blocks placed between the star blocks make the stars appear to be set on point.
Combine the evening star blocks with one or more other blocks. Use sashing between them. Add dramatic borders. There's no end to the layout possibilities--it's all up to you.
