What are you most proud of? I ran out of one of the green fabrics in the last quarter of this block... After digging in the trash and re thinking my plans i got it done:) That is my theme this month "Find a way to get it done".

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Double check how much fabric you have -or- be open to sudden changes in your plan:):)

I love your idea of inspiration. I finally made my first block today. Am using a black print, mostly small but a couple of larger swirls to it. Then picking a color or two from the base. It took me forever (too many stops and starts), but it was exactly the right size, which was a shock. Like the combo so far.

Ooo, I like the idea of the black. I thought od using it for my background and chickened out. I look forward to seeing your blocks.

I'm so glad you did NOT use the black. I absolutely love your colors and cannot wait to see the whole thing. I like my black so far and others have used it so it is a great choice, but yours is perfect. I don't have a way to upload pics yet, but may have to track down someone with a camera phone or whatever later. I'm nervous about showing my stuff anyway - which is nuts. This is such fun - I'm a caregiver so this connection to the outside world is wonderful for me
