    There are 2 star colors and one background.

    1 1/8 yard background
    3/4 yard star color A
    3/4 yard star color B

I have tried repining it again after all pins are in but when I'm guilting all of the darn wrinkes are back again. I have more wrinkles in my project than an 80 year old person. Lol.
