Quick Horn Toot, Then Back to Reality

That's my quilt!!  That teeny tiny little thing is completely SWAMPED by it, but that's the quilt I made for him!  It says his name on it!  That's Levi!  She really did bring it with her to the hospital!  I'm so flattered!!

And then there was this:

Yikes.  It looks like something a kindergärtner would laugh at.  Miserable.  That's my first attempt at an Ohio Star, and my first time using a real Jelly Roll.  This is Martinique from Moda.  Might be 3 sisters, I can't remember.  This is supposed to be for the new's kind of a miserable train wreck though.

It looked so pretty on the floor...what the heck happened???  I guess if it looks good on the floor, something's amiss.  I need to work my measurements backwards from the jelly roll.  That's probably what I'll be doing tomorrow since it's my last day at TMW and I have literally nothing to do except turn my fob in.

Wow, you changed everything!
And that Ohio Star looks fine. I don't know what you're talking about. Perhaps you're a bit of a perfectionist...? I think it looks fine!
(whoa. my word ver is "control". is that a message for me or what?!) ;)

The corner pieces look a little long in the first picture and maybe you've lost a point or two in the middle - difficult to see clearly. Maybe practice a bit with some scraps to perfect your technique before using up more of the jelly roll. Or, carry on regardless and call them 'liberated' :)
