What materials did you use? Fabrics from my stash. I only purchased yardage as required for the background fabric.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you look carefully, you will see that the Asterisk block is not centered correctly. This happened because I did not realize that the center marking on my 12 1/2 inch square ruler is not in the center of the square. After messing up the center on several blocks, I began to check more closely and realized that this ruler has 1/2" seam allowances on only 2 sides. This put the center in a different location. Therefore, I measured and marked a new center exactly 6 1/2 inches from all sides. Check out your rulers carefully and be sure to understand how they are marked so you won't make the same mistake.
