What materials did you use? I had a "scrap bag" from Keepsake Quilting with twelve 9" (wot) pieces of fabric in coordinated colours. 9" yields 4 strips @ 2 1/4" (rather than the usual 2 1/2") - enough to make a 44 X 62 quilt.

What are you most proud of? This time I took extra care to align the seams so that the points were accurate. The seams came out pretty well - helped by the fact that all the seam edges are bias so I could nudge the matching a wee bit, then press using Best Press to flatten out the blocks.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This isn't as easy as it looks - the piecing is straightforward, but because you sew once, cut blocks, sew two blocks together, cut along the diagonals, sew the larger blocks from 4 "corner" blocks - the amount of cutting, sewing makes it unlikely that everything is perfect - so you have to take care with the seaming and cutting.

This is awesome and would be great for men! I am always looking for things that my husband might like!
