    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.

    Very pretty. Love the darker background-really makes your colored squares "pop"
