What materials did you use? Leftover cotton fabric (I always seem to buy too much!)

What are you most proud of? The fact that the lines look more or less continuous. I got a bit carried away and put an extra line in and then added a Suffolk Puff (YoYo) to give it a bit more interest. Incidentally, the fabric looks quite blue in the picture, but it's much more lilac and purple in real life. (Camera's fault, not mine, for once!)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's easy - enjoy yourself!

Why didn't I think of an extra slash line? Too scared I guess, lol. Love your sample TFS!

It's not too late to go back and have another slash at the block! (That is, unless you've already put your quilt together and finished it!)

the extra slash line really makes it so different. wish I would've thought of that!!

As I said to Ginny - it's only too late if you've sashed, backed and quilted already!! Go on - give it a try!

I love the 5th line! It makes such a huge difference...it goes from plain to wow!

Thank you - I thought it needed a "little something" more, so went for it!

love your version of this block!

Thank you! I'm glad I stopped when I did - it was tempting to slash it all over the place!

Thank you. It's much nicer now it's been quilted, I think. It was really easy and fun to do (and turned out to be the right size, which is more than some of the other did!)
