Feathered Star Quilt - Completion of Chapter 1 - Judy and Brad Niemeyer

I have determined that Wine and paper piecing doesn't always go together!! 
Thursday night Jim and I had a wonderful Birthday dinner and shared a bottle of Wine!!
I came home wanting to finish Part 2 of Chapter 1 so I sewed on one of the sections and realized Friday night that they were on wrong!!  Of course I had already trimmed all of them but one!  Which meant using the seam ripper and cutting new pieces!!
I was able to finish Part 2 of the Chapter 1 Friday night!!
I laid them out at Cottonpickers so that I could get some suggestions on the fabric for Chapter 2.  Beth's daughter, Becky was there to give me a hand.
Looks pretty good if I do say so myself!!
These are the fabrics we selected for the Chapter 2!!
Today was the From Marti and Me Club and Sit and Sew of the Super Saturday Stitchers.
These women are very talented and will be working on their own Judy and Brad Niemeyer patterns soon!  I was able to complete Chapter 1 and start cutting out Chapter 2!!
I love how it is coming together!!  The next chapters fabrics are a little darker, so I'm hoping the center star will pop!!!
 This one of the 8 wedges in Chapter 1
This shows 2 of the wedges with the different colored centers.

Your colors are stunning! Your center star really sparkles and it will pop when it's all together. Can't wait to see the whole top when it's completed. Have a great day!

Thanks for the comments!! It's really not as hard as it looks. Judy and Brad give you really good directions and templates to use when cutting out the fabric. The wedges are comming together really great!!!
