What materials did you use? Continuing with Kona Ash as my background solid I also used fabrics from Amy Butler Design (Soul Blossom Line), Michael Miller Fabrics (Dumb dots) and Henry Glass Co. (Fresh Pallet)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Block # 3, the Balkan Puzzle Piece, was a little of a challenge since the HSTs were cut on the bias... they didn't want to cooperate as they went under the presser foot while stitching. If you look closely you'll notice that my side rows are slightly off due to trimming down the block to 12.5", but for my first go, I'm happy with the block. Block #4, Chunky Chevron, is my favorite so far, the HSTs are cut on grain and were much easier to work with, I hardly trimmed at all to square up to 12.5".
