What materials did you use? Cottons from my STASH

What are you most proud of? I've tried to be less strict about straight lines and perfection. Wonky is a learned technique? I hope so.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pick a fabric you LOVE! Then, pull colors from that to make your blocks

I appreciate your comment so much because I have seen your many talents here. Thanks for the confidence building! Now, if I just don't run out of fabric from my stash.....

Thank you for your comment. I want to be sure you see the above comment I wrote and, perhaps, posted incorrectly. I wanted to acknowledge your effort to encourage me!

Thank you so much. I have a couple more blocks finished, but need a camera loan to post. I'll probably do a bunch of pixs at once. These fabrics have gone in a different direction than I imagined, because of limited choices (quantity ) in my stash. I had one piece I loved, but small, and I cut it incorrectly! Ohhhhhm so maddening. I have to redo a couple you have not seen yet because a color, which is a perfect match in the print, actually looks dead in the block. Funny how that works sometimes. Thanks again for the compliment
