    Thank you, lots of great blocks, ladies on the board really helped me out. When top is completed if you don't see your squares, they'll be in the second top. I made a total of 260 squares so far but takes 221 per quilt top.

    Me too. I like lots of color. Is this the pattern that uses Charm packs? I'm thinking of using some of mine for a quilt like this. I love the Christmas fabrics you used.

    I like both pictures. Have you thought about random placement.

    That's going to be pretty quilts. Reminds me of wrapped Christmas packages. Thanks for showing these & can't wait to see the finished quilts.

    I like the top one. I'm also making one of these with neutrals and a solid brown stripe. I'll see if I can post a picture. This is a great use of scraps. I cut my pile of neutrals in half making a 42x60 quilt top. I love this simple block.

    I love doing "pick up sticks". As I look at your blocks, I giggled because they look like wrapped Christmas packages with a ribbon tied around them. Great job!

    Thanks ladies, #1 it will be, I've started putting rows together last night and got 4 rows put together. I'm gonna border with red/green, than use a nice Christmas print for the border. I want to make 4 Christmas ones for family members.

    I vote for the top pic. Looks like a fun pattern to use up those prints!
