Passacaglia quilt

OK....rosette #1 is finished for my Passacaglia quilt.  

There were 90 pieces to this one and it took me 3 or 4 days. it is slow going when each seam is just 1 or 1 1/2 inches.

It is 13 1/2" across

Not bad for the first one. i hope to get better with the others. my biggest problem was finding a marker that would work on the black fabric. i have chalk but it didn't stay. pencil or pen didn't show. i finally used a silver Sharpie...haha....yeah, i know....but i could see it. only thing is it wasn't a fine line so i was trying to sew inside the line. almost all of my points turned out good.

I have to be more precise in how i fold the seams back so i can put them together more easily. i had a few problems there, but i'll figure it out. 

Rosette #2 is a bigger challenge.  there are 3 of them to make.  you make the same as the first one, then add 4 more rounds. i'll be busy for a while.
