What are you most proud of? They were actually 12.5 inch blocks when I got done putting them together!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make the half square triangles bigger... especially the sew around the outside and cut into four... that way you can trim down to square them. a few of mine I intentionally "stretched" with the iron to be square.

Thanks everyone! There are so many black and white prints out there, I am really having fun with this colorway.

Love your color choice - the black and white with a striking accent color. I haven't pulled my fabrics yet, and you've provided inspiration (though it won't be the same colors). I agree with Shazdove - your finished quilt will be beautiful.

ITA with everyone. The colors are a brilliant combination. Also, your piecing is amazingly precise. Excellent work!

I love the color combination - that blue is great with the black and white.

Love your background fabric. That really makes everything look great. I went with white, but now I wish I didn't. Beautiful work and color combos.
