    Opinions please

    So I've only made a few quilts and of the ones I've made the piecing has been relatively simple. I decided to try my hand at a quilt from Judy Martin called Mariner's Star. I've just finished the center and I want to get some eyes on it of people who know what they are doing. I don't want to continue to far if it isn't right. I think it is but if you all could just let me know if there are any major issues which I need to fix (I know pictures aren't perfect) that would be great.
    Thanks,
    Yael

    I just LOVE Judy Martin! Her books give you SO much information! I love your color and your piecing looks spot on. Keep in mind you need a good 1/4 past your points so they dont' get swallowed up in the next seam. They look good from here...
