What materials did you use? Cotton scraps.

What are you most proud of? I was surprised to find how easy this was (although mine's got a bit of a corner on it in one place - still practice makes perfect and this WAS my first attempt!). I was a little concerned about the thickness of the finished block and, before I appliqued the disc onto the background I toyed with the idea of cutting out the back of the disc to make it thinner. However, I didn't have the courage to do it, as Amy didn't suggest it, so it's still quite thick.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Choose your colours and patterns carefully. Do look at what other people have posted on the site, as many of them have had excellent and innovative ideas and have made this block look quite spectacular.

Great block, wonderful colors & creation. Well done. Thank you for sharing. :-)

Thank you, Pamilia - I thought about doing two colours, which would have been okay, then about three, which wouldn't have worked, not being divisible into 20, four seemed to be okay (hope you're impressed with the maths!) and so that was it!

10/18/2012 Flag

YES ... I am really impressed with the math also. A Big Thumbs Up. :-)

I didnt do this one either, wasnt interested, but I altered the dresden plate, so I had too different takes on it

Good idea! They were both comparatively easy, not having any half-square triangles (the bane of my life at the moment!).

I understand.....

Very nice colors

Thank you. I didn't start out with any particular theme in mind, but it just sort of evolved with a whole lot of purple scraps and leftovers.
