    Here’s mine! I had so much fun with choosing colors and my floral statement fabric of this block. I love this floral, but I had hardly any of it, I only got a little scrap in a random scrap pack from someone. So I had to use it very wisely, and make the other two my “larger amounts of fabric” features.

    And here’s mine. It’s so amazing how different everyone’s looks depending on their fabric choices.

    That is super cool to look at yours next to mine! Because I would say the “X” is very prominent in mine, but the star is very prominent in yours, all due to color! Beautiful. 💙

    I love seeing everyone’s blocks. Amazing how different they all look depending on our colour choices. This is my one. I have to say that I found this one more challenging than the first one for some reason.

    They’re ALL so pretty! I love seeing each of them. Isn’t that funny, @carolyn51? May’s block–(I think?) is very similar to this one so you’ll get a do-over! I know for me, sometimes it totally depends on me and my state of mind. I can screw any easy project up really fast by starting it when I’m exhausted or just not feeling it, haha. Hello seam ripper!

    @karen_harrill I’m so excited about your color combinations. I’m so glad you shared both blocks on the FB group together!

      @tracine I’m partial to yours since your colors are similar to mine. 🙂 It definitely was easier!
