Good job! I really like the contrast. I expect you're on the road to making many more cool projects.

Thanks for the nice comments! No one mentioned my mistakes...that we were told to use a light-colored solid (I used dark gray) and that I have too many prints! I forgot to eliminate one of the prints while I was selecting the fabrics so I ended up with 10 blocks each of 5 prints and 40 of the solid. I discovered the mistake on the design wall when I had leftover blocks when my 10 rows were completed. I added an 11th row and had 3 blocks leftover. I liked the design so I decided to finish it with 11 rows.
