    Just because I'm so darn finicky about some things, I decided I didn't like the first one anymore. This second one, I'm very happy with! AAAAANNDDD... my points all match up pretty well!
    I'm trying to come up with ideas about what to do with the rest of the quilt... any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Well, I think I'm going to put some white around it to make it square, and then do something fun with the borders, but I'm not sure what. So far, my center is 28" across.

    another non-noobish creation!!! :-)

    since the rest of us liked your first one so much more than you do ... why not unstitch it a little and turn it into four quarter-compasses to use in the corners of the finished quilt? :mrgreen:

    Actually, that is an awesome idea, except that I would make new ones because I've eliminated the red entirely...


    Ooo, I'm all excited now...better go work on it!

    ok, so I havent' gotten to the edges yet, but I wanted to share my second step with you all. This is the first time I do the flying geese pattern, plus it was rounded, and I didn't have a pattern, but I think I planned everything out pretty well, I guess my math skills aren't as bad as I thought.
    The edges are not trimmed yet, as you can kind of see through my white fabric, but you still get the idea.

    WOW! Great work!! The colors go very well together. I would never be able to accomplish the circle.
