What materials did you use? Scraps from all my other blocks

What are you most proud of? I braved using my machine's built in stitches this time, and was able to adjust everything to get very clean stitching for the first time ever.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This project gives you plenty of room to express yourself. You should relax and take your time arranging everything and embelishing the block to match your tastes.

Thank you, I've been collecting the shades of blue for a long time. Don't remember where they all came from.

Blues! What better color is there!? Beautiful to look at. You did a terrific job in your fabric selection. Oh, a whole quilt to curl up in would be fantastic!

I am getting anxous to get this one all put together. This quilt is going to be for myself, and I'm looking forward to curling up under it.

It's very nice! The colors really pop and the way you stitched around the edges looks absolutely beautiful! Can't wait to see the whole thing when you are done! (No pressure, LOL)
