I just went and watched the video by Jenny Doan at MSQC and I am thinking you must have added some sashing in between the pieces in each block. What size did you cut your sashing as I really like the way you separated your pieces. It looks so much nicer with the sashing. Could you please share what size you cut your sashing?

Jordan, the pattern I have calls for sashing at 2.5 inches. Itís basically a sashed 9 patch made with 10 inch squares that you slice apart and turn the pieces. Here is the link to the pattern on their site - https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop...-missouri-star.

Thank you everyone for your kind words! Her color selection was a precut packed of 10 inch squares but itís a start! She already has the quilting bug in a way. She wants to help me quilt and likes to hold my prices/blocks as they are guided through my machine (with hands far away from the needle, of course). She has been asking for a toy sewing machine lately after I told her I saved my old one for her when she gets older.

Sounds like she might wind up being our youngest member on The Quilting Board soon.
