Our quilt

Hi friends!
Cloudy today!
I know that  first picture looks like pin wheels but i assure you it is the envelope block or i have seen it called  'broken dishes'.
I changed the way i am putting it together.  I changed my batting  to a 80% cotton so i want to put the part with that batting  where it will warm us when it is on us.  Does that make any sense?      I am hoping that i can  use the cotton in these and put some border around  to make it big enough to cover us and then use the other blocks that i have made to make a border around the edges.  Maybe on both sides and on the bottom.
We will see as i go along!!!    I change things all the time.
See my little ornament.    It looks better  on the tree and shows up better in natural light.
Well if i am going to get any thing done i had better start!!
Have a great sewing day.   Quilt Happy
