Quilt for kids, progress?

I made several blocks in a pattern that matches the UFO block that I chose from my Modern Quilt Guild exchange. The blocks were super fun to make. I don’t often make traditional blocks–so I was pleased to see that my seams lined up!  So far so good. Except then I had to find a way to piece them together so the UFO block (which is slightly larger and hand pieced) won’t look like an alien among the new blocks. First I tried a sort of scrappy approach with bone white and gray.

Next I placed the new star blocks in a strip and tested some darker colors next to it. I like the charcoal and mustard yellows. I think I might finish the top by placing the UFO block at the center of a log cabin with more mustard and maybe some hot pink? I really need to finish this top up so I can get it quilted by our guild meeting on September 3. Yikes!
