    Girl you sure got the hang of this. Its beautifully done, ove the border. In this area of Ok we do not sew down the little sq in the center of the block. It facinates children and ladies too. This is a very popular design. Helen

    I can't imagine making any changes. Big improvement.

    I love the quilt and the colors. Is that a gingham that you used for the check blocks? This may sound like a dumb question but is this pattern limited to the three colors? I think I might add a fourth --- yellow check with a yelow butterfly prink for the on-pint square.

    Or maybe add a yeelow check as a small border befor the larger border and then use the yellow check as the backing. I see this as a baby gift and a perfect gift for my niece that whose baby (a little girl) is due this summer

    It said gingham on the selvedge but it didn't act like gingham. I tink you could use as many colors as you want. I never let a pattern limit me.

    Love the colors and the quilt. The thin border might be exactly what it needs then the blocks. Great job.

    If you really want to get crazy you can use the half triangle from her Twist and Turn book for the border. It would look awesome!!

    I love the fabrics, but I think I would separate the same color blocks so they are not touching. I think it would add more interest and pop to the quilt. If you use the 10" squares, it is so much easier to sew. I did all the blocks in one evening and I did not know what I was doing either. I first made a smaller 5" square and it was hard..the 10" was much easier. I turned the sides in this afternoon and just have to arrange it and put the blocks together.

    I love this pattern, the colors are so pretty and happy. I think, if it was me, I would make the border squares thinner like piano keys of those colors you are working with. Outstanding job. Love this pattern. Oh! I already said that.
