    It is easy as long as you sew straight seams in your tubes, and cut properly. Even failing that, the blocks are cut on the bias, which gives you a little play to fit your seams... I did take a little extra time (and some re-dos) to get the points to match really well. I'm a stickler for points and can't let them pass when they don't look perfect or get cut off.

    Do a search on the board for Boxed Squares, there's lots of pictures of them made by board members, many of them in batiks. I made two of them with bali pops, and they were gorgeous.

    They are beautiful! The one in browns would be a great quilt for a guy...

    Wow, thanks for the boxed squares pattern link and the note to search for photos on this site. I love to find different views of patterns.

    That may be my next project. It looks so cool with the batiks.

    Thanks for sharing - I need to start a "to do" list! One that is written down somewhere and the first quilt on it needs to be Boxed Squares in Batiks. (Right after I finish 5 wips.) :)

    I found this one recently that looks promising,
    a scappy bento box with a nice tutorial

    I maybe able to make a QOV if I stay with maybe a white, beige, gold tone and them mix and match my red and blue strips.
