    Well ... This one is hot off the machine! LOL! I will add a coral border, quilt, and bind from here. Sorry the first one is kind of fuzzy and cuts the quilt off some. It is five blocks by five so far. (60x60) Thanks for looking. :-D :-D

    You do a good job using black and white. I haven't been able to pull it off yet. Pretty.

    Sweeeet!! Almost didn't look at the thread when I saw the coral with black and white - would have been my loss big time. Just love your fabrics along with the pattern. :)

    It's beautiful. Those tiny blocks in the middle are wonderful. You did a great job.

    Thanks so much girls! This is a two block quilt. I love two block quilts because they can add a secondary pattern if you set them right. I used the centers from the dp4 to make the square in a square blocks.

    It is just my own concoction. Thanks so much for the sweet comments. I was trying out the block (d 4p) for a swap and found it would not stand alone as a nice block. So, now I must find another to switch it out with and hope the girls don't mind. Dang! I hate doing it but, I must.

    Great Job :thumbup:

    How tiny are the small centers in the one block ?

    Love the contrasting colors :mrgreen:

    Thanks so much everyone! I am so flattered that you all like it so well.
    The center of the square in a square is an inch and a half. It was a byproduct of the D4P that I claimed for the second block to tie them together.
    The Dp4 is a block I saw on a blog that a teacher made up. It is made as a regular 4 patch and then without moving it on a rotating mat , you make a one inch cut from the center on all sides from the center. You then flip the rectangles (white to black and vise versa) and leave the center alone. But, I wanted to have the color in the center, and I changed it out to the coral. That left the begining of the other block done like a square in a square. That's is it. Pretty simple, but I like that way it turned out.
    The fabric I started with was the michael miller coral fairy frost I just fell in love with and shopped for the rest.

    I haven't thought of coral with black and white. It's a stunning combination. Nice job!
