    this is only the second pattern that I have ever done other than making squares. and it was really relatively easy. I love the fabric and am using it is another quilt for a friend. But this beauty of a square is going into a baby quilt for a lady at church. she is having a little boy and the boys room is supposed to be apple green and shades of blue. From what she has registered for she is going with a water theme so hopefully it will go in the room okay. even if it doesn't I hope that she likes it. I am actually making this quilt with another lady from church who is in my mommy play group. I can't wait to actually make the whole quilt with my friend. :lol: :XD:

    I am thinking of making this block again but larger, it is a 12" now but might try to make it 18" or 24" just have to measure the bed it would be going on.

    this is the block before i sewed it all together, trying to figure out if the while was what i wanted to go with

    Very pretty and impressive. I only hope my 2nd quilt attempt turns out nearly as good.

    Is it paper pieced? It is a gorgeous block. Can't wait to see the finished quilt. Thanks so much for sharing. I'm going to Jenny Beyer's site right now to check it out and maybe save it, print it for future use. Thanks!!!
