Cousin's Walk and Possible Center Block

I finished the final 3 blocks! Tweet! Tweet! 

I loved the center on the original, but wanted to come up with something different from those who have made this quilt. Here's a small paper pieced section.

And then 2 more. It will be slow going since I'm not the best at paper piecing, especially triangle shapes. 

My friend Paula drafted it on Electric Quilt for me. I posted on the Facebook group, Humble Quilts,  because I wasn't sure how to piece this. So many great ideas and lovely photos of quilts others have done with a compass center. I love the way we can bounce ideas off each other and what may work for someone may not work for another. No quilt police!

This was my inspiration block.

I hope I can do it!

If you joined the Humble Quilt swap today is the deadline to mail your quilt! 
I've seen some amazing little quilts. Good job quilters!

Have a lovely weekend!
