What are you most proud of? The striking colors and that my friend loved it so much! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Higher contrast between the lights and dark's make for a more striking pattern. This is the block that I learned in my first quilting class in 1998. I've made about 5 or 6 quilts from this block and they all look different. Most of them were before my digital camera so I'll try to get the pic's scanned and loaded into my projects.
