Baby Star Quilt

I thought I'd gotten a better photo of this quilt. This is what happens when I only look at the photos on my camera before giving away the quilt.

One of my cousins is having a baby boy any day now. The nursery was decorated with moons and stars in brown and blue. I didn't necessarily want to match, but I at least knew what she liked. I found a brown and blue bird fabric in my stash. I decided to use it for the centers of a star quilts. All of this fabric was from my stash, much of it from my smaller scraps. I  LOVE when that happens. I only bought new thread for this one. This quilt is approximately 52" square. I also made a doll quilt for big sister, but I apparently didn't take a photo of that one at all!

Out of my comfort zone

My sewing time has definitely taken a hit this year. I am attempting this double wedding ring quilt, and, um, it is humbling to say the least. I made the first full circle. There were problems in the seams and such, so I ripped things apart, thinking I could fix the problem. I really didn't. There were more problems. So, I just kept going. And more parts don't line up. I honestly don't know how to fix the problems. I used this pattern, which has paper piecing for each arc. That seemed like it would make things a bit more accurate. Or, so I thought.

This is where I need help. I obviously can't keep going this way. Does anyone know a better way to make this pattern? I'm generally not much of a pattern follower, and have only recently become comfortable with curved piecing. Thanks!
