Starting Jenna's quilt

I've made a rather slow start now on the second of the quilts for my three granddaughters.  I sewed Jenna's name in free-piecing using solid colors.  Then I made a sample star block.  I love to make these free-pieced blocks like Gwen Marston has in her wonderful quilting books. Right now I've been planning a lay-out for the quilt.  I'm thinking of making large star blocks alternating with some other blocks, such as applique hearts.  Or perhaps pieced hearts.  I hope that I can cut out some blocks today.  Meanwhile, life goes on and I've been busy with other things.   Even if I'm not quilting, I'm planning quilts in my mind.
