    Very interesting to keep your eyes on the black and white striped block while scrolling the pic up. Watch what it does...an optical illusion of sorts. One reason why I love working with stripes! Nice work!
    You notice the black and white square does that. I was wondering if I would be the only one. It's fun.

    Thank you all for your nice comments. With careful cutting it's really a lot easier to match those stripes than you might think.

    How challenging! So neat! Was there a tute that guided you on how to best match the stripes (so perfect!)? Would love to try but being so new to quilting, I don't have the nerve!

    Check out Red Pepper Quilts blog. http://www.redpepperquilts.com/searc...max-results=10 She discusses how she cuts her pieces for her squares. With careful cutting, the stripes will practically go together on their own.

    I love your quilt but I have never been able to sew stripes because it makes me dizzy. A lady brought me one to quilt for her and I had to put the top on the bottom to get it done.
