Project Quilting Season 8, Challenge 5

The theme for this challenge is "Well Dressed Man". After 4 or 5 starts, this is where I landed. My guy accessorizes with guitars! (He has quite a collection.) Of course his assistant was right in there. I ran out of time to add in the details I wanted, but all in all, I'm pleased with how it turned out.

This is the photo I worked from:

The voting is open here until Friday night for your 8 favorites.

In working on the Block of the Month Blazing Star quilt from Craftsy, it appears that there are errors in some templates. Since it's a free pattern, there is not much support for corrections, so I drafted my own fix.

This is from the instructions. See the 90 degree angle at the fat part of the kite shape where it meets the square?

Clearly not 90 degrees.

 My draft with the additional tall side triangle. I think it will work! 

I really do think this is a beautiful quilt and the instructor does a super job on the video. Hopefully this is the only error.

Happy weekend!
