Leo's Mane sew along, part 1 complete

Hi everyone, 

I have joined Catherine, from 
Eagles Wings Quilts in doing her Leo's Mane quilt. 
This quilt is English paper pieced. 
I decided to purchase the cut pieces from her store.
I'm so glad I did. This will save me a ton of time. Because these pieces are tiny. 

I managed to complete step 1 already.
I'm not the best at English paper piecing, but I hope to greatly improve as I work on this quilt. 

I requested a colouring page so that I could decide on how I was going to use my fabric.
 I knew I wanted it to be somewhat scrappy. 
I also decided to have two constant colours, Kona white and Kona black. 
The rest would be made from a rainbow of prints from my stash. 
Here's my colouring page. 
I'm excited to continue to work on this quilt. 
Go check out Catherine's site. 
Maybe you want to make this quilt with your own colours. 

Note: I'm not affiliated with this site, I'm just participating in her quilt along. Which I'm excited about. Ha!

Such tiny pieces. This will be awesome and I'm sure by the time you are done you will be an expert.
