"My Tweets" Layout

Still working on blocks but I found some fabric that will work for the wings.  As long as it "looks" like the fabric belongs there, it's all good.  Now to fix the center.

Here's the layout:

I have a couple of problems with the center panel.  When I got the pattern, I missed the directions to make the background fabric larger.  I then added a white border to fix that problem.  When I realized cutting down the 16 inch blocks to the size on the pattern wasn't going to work, I figured I'd just redo the center panel.  

If I redo the center panel, the proportions of the center design are off making it look too small.  Yes, I checked.  So my plan is to add some inside borders.  The same blue print goes around the center panel as the blocks with a center border. Any other thoughts?

Love your layout. And, yes you will figure out what to do about your center.

No way would I redo that center panel. I would add inside border strips of the blue, and if that didn't work, I'd keep adding outer, inner borders of the coordinating fabrics (Maybe surrounded by piping to frame it?) until it looked like you planned it that way!
