Default La Pass (type) square #2

I have been experimenting w/ turning the La Pass type rosettes into squares, the first one I did was w/ all the La pass shapes, exactly. This one started as a La Pass type square, but w/ changes. B/c of fabric amount limitations (only having one F8) I had to make some adjustments. The butterflies were to large to fit in one pentagon, so I decided to combine two pentes and a skinny diamond, this made the piece big enough to fit the fussy cut butterflies in the space, but then I had an inward point that I didn't want to fuss w/ so I drew a whole new shape. For the large green points I combined the large diamond and the two star points, but then elongated the whole shape to form a bigger star. This is mostly hand pieced w/ epp, but several seams are also sewn by machine (where it made sense to do it)

I like how you designed this. Great fabric choices.

Quilting is all about creativity. I love your explanation of how you made this project to your specifications instead of completely by the original pattern. The block is very pretty. Are you going to put all these together to make a larger quilt?

When I start making them for myself yes, so far the 2 I've made have been for a swap I am participating in.
