What materials did you use? 100% cotton fabrics from my stash.

What are you most proud of? June didn't inspire me, so I fussed over fabric choices and whether I'd motivate myself to even do them; so I was just happy to get them done. July was much more interesting for me.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you are new to quilting, use cotton fabrics you may already own or buy sale fabrics to try out the blocks.

As for me, I don't even know yet if all my blocks will end up in a lap quilt in this crafty course or I select blocks to use in a variety of different smaller projects. My goal is just to do all 20 blocks and then decide...
