What materials did you use? fabric from my stash

What are you most proud of? Making another set of blocks instead of making do with ones I didn't like. Learning from the experience of working with triangles and biases. It's always good to stretch your skills.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Laura cut both strips at the same time which I often do when I quilt. However, working with triangle and bias edges, I think she should have stressed more how tricky this is. Small errors with trangles are magnified and not easily fixed. I also had trouble with my fabric choice because it was hard to visualize the final placement. The second attempt was simplified when I realized the original pattern used 2 of the fabrics in both sets of blocks.

In this case, I think you are going to be the only one to realize your mistakes. Honestly, they are all good.
