    I like the addition of the white. It breaks up the pattern a little bit, and you notice the colors more. I am making a mental note of this!

    LOVE TRYING - That's the right idea!!!! It's all a learning process...better enjoy each step.

    It looks great from here -
    Have you thought of taking larger pieces of fabric - even FQ and sew them together and make a scrappy back. Use what you have!

    Karen, You are no longer a "quilter in the making." You have arrived! I love this quilt top. Those diagonal rows of white really make this quilt look fabulous.

    scrappy quilt, make a scrappy back. I like to use leftover bindings on my scrappy quilts; keeps to the scrappy theme.

    Really like the light colored squares set on the diagonal - makes the darker squares stand out,

    Has a nice rhythm to it.

    I, too, like the light square that gives it a continuity. Very pretty.
