    Hoping the rest of the blocks come out nice like this one, only see a couple of boo boo's...but I was afraid if I took the seem out one more time the middle square would tear...it was getting weak...LOL

    Just beautiful. You really did a great job choosing the fabrics to compliment your block.

    Okay, I always want to know what people are learning as they're doing their quilts/blocks. What was it that required you to tear out the middle block?

    Are you paper piecing at all here?

    BTW, I think it is VERY striking.

    No paper piecing, I don't know how to do that yet, found the free pattern on the Mccalls free pattern site, just started reading the directions...

    Had to tear out because I couldnt get the little squared to match, but finally it happen... :shock:

    And thank you...

    That's a nice block and the colours will make a really nice quilt. One suggestion..... check your 1/4 inch seam allowance to make sure it's accurate and your corners might come out better.
