What are you most proud of? This was my first experience with partial seaming. I was happy to find it easier than I thought.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? As Laura teaches, measure carefully before cutting and sew consistent scant 1/4 inch seams. One of my fabrics was not wide enough to yield 12 segments of the pieced strips so I had to cut an extra strip, even though I did line up the selvedges at one end. So be sure to have more fabric than you think you'll need.

Great blocks, really like the color palette you are using.

Using that dark red in that position gives it a whirly gig look. Very nice.
