La Passacaglia Rosette 6:1

I finished my first rosette 6. I think I have to make a number of these partial rosettes so I'm experimenting with color placement.
The cat fabric is from Heather Ross's current line called Tiger Lily. I had to cut up quite a bit to match the pentagons but the cuteness was worth it. Use it or lose it, as they say. I also discovered that Alison Glass's Party Streamers fabric is based on the same size of diamond as the ones in this quilt. Lots of possibilities there!

La passacaglia progress

I decided to use this as a Rosette 4, for those of you familiar with the pattern. For those not familiar---it is a finished piece. Where the stars are missing, it will mesh up with other rosettes. I'm pretty stoked about this one but I'm going to aim for stronger contrast in a few more.
This is the start of my next rosette. I couldn't resist the cute kittens from Heather Ross' Tiger Lily fabric. I'm going to use a grey polka dot for the star points on this one. 

I don't get any scheduled sewing time right now so I do most of this while the baby naps.
