What are you most proud of? That I've started YET ANOTHER project. Oh wait. MOST proud of? I thought you said LEAST proud of. Never mind. ;)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I suggest starting with larger squares than I did. These started as 6" (just 'cause 6" is easy to cut), but if I were to make another one, I'd start with 9"squares. These turned out a bit smaller than I would have liked.

Very cool block! I too am a fan of improv - can't wait to see the entire quilt!!

I love this block. Can't wait to see the quilt. Thanks for the tip about block size.

Thanks for the comments, everyone. I've added two more blocks to make this a rectangular shape instead of square, and I've added a small-ish border. One last border to contain those spinners and I'll be ready to quilt.

The smallish border has now expanded, but I think this top is done. The backing has been pieced so it's ready to sandwich and quilt.
