What materials did you use? 100% cotton from my stash. Will probably divide the blocks and make two Project Linus quilts out of them, so using kid friendly colors.

What are you most proud of? I have made too many quilts to count but have never been too careful with that 1/4" seam. I am working on that with this class, I'm very happy with how the blocks turned out and I learned two techniques for the half-square trianles. I rarely use triangles in my quilting.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be very sure to use a 1/4" scant seam when piecing.

Thank you. I plan on possibly making these blocks, and the other ones from this course into 2 Project Linus quilts so I'm trying to make them kid friendly.
