    What a bright and fun quilt. Sounds like a great way to do a little stash busting too!

    Great tute!
    Thanks for taking the time to post it.
    I made a postage stamp quilt and used some pieces of bright yellow.
    After it was finished I saw where that splash of yellow could have made a big difference if I had placed them in strategic areas.
    Your comments and photos will be a big help to me on my next all-scrappy quilt.
    Have a wonderful day.

    Thank you for doing this - Choosing colors is a basic that so many find it difficult to really understand. With your tute, it will definitely help with those trying to choose the right combination - thanks!

    So you just don't slap a bunch of colors together? Seriously, thank you! I need to spend a lot more time at my design wall.

    Thanks everyone so much! I love your comments!! They are so encouraging!

    In scouring my Specifications section yesterday, I noticed I left out the size of round 2 and # needed so here is the corrected version. You'll need 280 of 2x3's for round 2. However, there is a pic of those in the 'Steps' section.

    If you are printing this out, here is the corrected version for you:


    Specifications:

    quilt top: 64x82

    finished block: 5" - 5.25" (depending on bias stretch)

    # of blocks needed: 70 (7 x 10)
    # of cut 2" assorted squares needed: 280
    # of cut (your choice)1.5 x 2's, 2x2's or triangles needed: 280 (I used all 3 in this quilt)
    # of cut 2x3's needed: 280
    # of cut (your choice) 2.5 x 4 or 2.5 x 4.5** rectangles needed: 280

    **My test block shows a 1/4" margin when using this size rectangle
    and only a 1/8" margin with the 2.5x4.

    Inner border:

    Muslin border: cut size - 5.5"

    Scrappy border: cut size - 3.5" x assorted lengths

    Outer border:

    Muslin border: cut size 7.5"


    p.s. That's the only size I used for that round also.

    Wonderful tutorial, I love this block but color is a huge problem with me, this will help a lot. Thank you so much.
