    I love your colours!

    When I have used the D9P block, I try and turn the quarter blocks so that no two rectangles line up and try to avoid same colours together as best you can. So carry on twisting and turning the blocks ...btw this can take SEVERAL sessions LOL

    Can't wait to see how you finish it :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Great advice - which I'm saving for my next D9P!

    Thank you for asking the question.

    It's actually a messed up 'yellow brick road' :-) read the instructions wrong so I am missing one of the blocks... :-) but appreciate the suggestions and made some changes... I will post a new pic tomorrow.

    Bottom right corner where the white square and white rectangle meet, I'd switch one of those. Great color choices. Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

    I'd like to see more of the stripes turned each direction.
