What advice would you give someone starting this project? You should have at least 8 different fabrics to create this block, it's very easy and doesn't use a lot of fabric. Have fun!

I love this. The pattern is interesting and the colors are snappy. Great job!

Okay...now I get 40 squares. Next you ought to do the "How many triangles?" (:

01/13/2013 Flag

I've heard of that but haven't seen it yet!

01/13/2013 Flag

Yes, there are 40 squares! I've heard of the triangles puzzle but haven't seen it yet.

I've seen this posted on facebook, but it takes a clever mind to turn it into a quilt. Great project and definitely a conversation starter.

I'm glad you like it, I'd like to turn it into a full size quilt, I have a few ideas, I guess I'll just have to experiment. Thank you for your kind words!

I just did this puzzle on FB this morning!! So, neat to see it as a quilt. Lovely! I see 36!

01/13/2013 Flag

Very close, there are 40. :D

01/13/2013 Flag

I see the 40 now. Thanks!

01/13/2013 Flag

Ooh I got 40 too:)) this is a fun block and would be great for kids:)

Thanks Desna, fussy cutting the squares would add the eye spy facet to it as well! :D

Brilliant idea tholtz :) will actually do that for a floor cushion I am making for Lily-Kate, thanks for the great tip!
