First Melissa recommends you sort your fabrics into columns and rows that will work well with each star. Here's what I came up with. The columns are the fabrics for each of 4 stars and the rows are the components to the star (burst points, star center and star surround).
This quilt is made assembly-line style, so next you cut all the fabrics according to Melissa's handy cutting chart. That includes the background fabric, which for me is Kona Bone. I managed to be really careful cutting the 7/8ths but somehow cut the easy 4 1/2" squares as 4 1/4" instead. Oops. Fortunately, I had enough fabric to correct my mistake. Here's my cut pieces ready to go!
