Here are some details about my project:
Category Quilting
Type Functional
stitchingtimes on craftsy.com

What materials did you use? All cotton fabric and thread

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Definitely check your gauge on the 1/4 seams. If you are over even a hair the block will not measure 12 1/2 inches to a side. Unlike some of the other blocks, this one has no tolerance to trim after assembly.

I think they are perfect! I love that you used the same print in different colors.

I like your block, and isn't it funny how sometimes when we piece like this how some parts match up on the design, like in the picture on the left of the center how some match up. nicely done.

I agree. It's always tempting to waste fabric and try and force that match up, but it so much better when it happens by accident

Sorry about the double post. This interface is not all that intuitive :-)

Sometimes this site doesnt do right when we hit the enter key, and it will load a comment two or sometimes more.
