Your tutorial was like a mystery story with every cut delivering another twist. It was educational and inspiring. I love the sew, cut up, and sew again type blocks. I have bookmarked your tutorial for future reference. Thank you!

You are so right it all starts with squares. Beautiful color selections too. Beautiful quilt is the outcome.
