    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...

    It looks wonderful - kuddos to you for not being a chicken (like me) and just going for it.

    It looks great. It's hard to see if the points at the 9 o' clock and 11 o' clock positions have the full 1/4" seam allowance.

    I can't wait to see the finished product! I love your color choices and the mariners star, but I'm afraid to attempt it!

    I see some points that looks like they go almost to the edge of the circle, but it is hard to tell how much allowance is letf beyond the point. I would say for first atempt this is a very good start, but I have never made one of these so don't know if that will through off the next round. You have done a good jpb of picking and place the fabrics.
