    Started this yesterday

    Hi everyone,
    Started this yesterday, my friends' mother (who used to quilt) said it is beautiful. What do you guy think? It's a part of what is going to be a bigger charity quilt.
    I'll add more pics as it gets bigger!

    Looks like you have a fun scrappy on the way!

    You might want to check that all your seams are the same width. Also, if you measure/square it up with each layer of strips added ... it will help you to keep it square, and for all the blocks to be the same size at the end. Much easier, when you go to join them all together. And you'll have a much nicer finished product.

    Have FUN!

    Until you posted the second block I was thinking the block may have been a Bento Box, rather than scrappy. Pretty fabrics.
