They're 2 "finished. I used HST from flying geese as enders and used those to make the pinwheels. One of them I cut the wrong way but used it anyway

Default In over my head!

This is beyond my skill level - and I probably have no business trying these blocks but I Love them so!! I have Quilt Lovely - I have never made my own pattern before. Like a few of the writers here I buy patterns to set myself up for success. On my table right now is Daybreak (Cozy Quilt Co).
The block I can't stop dreaming about is Glitter. I am determined (through all the fear and confusion) - that this will be my next quilt somehow. I photo copied the pattern that was in the back of the book. I figures out that the squares are 1 1/4 (so would be 1 3/4 cut I guess?) and the cones? I just drew on to template plastic and then went around the shape 1/4 inch away - I then cut out the shape on those new 1/4 inch away lines. I did the same for the 4 side pieces. I cut some scrap fabric for all of the pieces....I am terrified to sew them because if they don't come out right.....well this is the only idea I have on how to do it :-( I took a picture of Daybreak (almost finished with that top) - and then a picture of where I am at with the Glitter pieces. I would be forever grateful for any advice, instructions, anything really am I on the right track or is there a way to do this that is....well normal :-)Thanks from Kansas.

Welcome Littlecanvases to our Kingwell world

Love your Daybreak! As you have noticed the Kingwell patterns aren't that straight forward But you're well on your way! Are you a member of Facebook? There's a Jen Kingwell Designs Group and in that group is a tut how to sew the Glitter pieces. It's all Y seams.........you're very brave!!
I have to leave in a few minutes and won't be home today so I can't help you any further right now.
If I was sewing the Glitter block I would sew two squares together, then the cone shape, the center squares and the other two squares and cone shape. Then the side pieces with the Y seams. Sounds easy doesn't it!
Show us your progress and don't hesitate to ask!!

Anael ~ Since you have had experience making a few different Jen Kingwell patterns, I have a question for you: Which would be the better choice for a First-timer like myself ... Gypsy Wife or My Small World? I already purchased the GW pattern, but now that I see the beginnings of your MSW quilt I am in love with that whimsical pattern and tempted to buy. Do either of these patterns involve Y seams? Not my cup of tea!
