    I used the beige on beige as the middle square, the aqua was the four corners and the black was the 4 middle edges. I used 6" squares to start with, since they were the easiest for to cut. The last block measured 16 1/2" before they were sewn together. I had made a smaller version with 4" 1/2" blocks, but my daughters voted for the larger block. I really like how the colors came together - very dynamic. My nephew and his new wife seemed to like it (the picture of it, anyway).

    Purple, black and beige would be a great color combination!

    Thank you katsdar~I was working in the flower bed and looked up and there she was, looking at me through the fence! Of course I had no camera out with me, so had to run in and get the camera. She was still there and I had her look at me through the fence and snapped 2-3 pics of her! I love this one of her.

    Thank you coldupnorth! I kinda thought that was the layout. So this quilt is made of 6" squares? I think the purple, black and beige would look good also. Still thinking on it.

    Hmmm I am busy sewing and cooking. DH just went for a week long business trip but I still have all the kids here so I am far from lonely or bored. Your block looks great and will go well with mine. What colors are most people using? By the way my blocks went in the mail last Saturday.

    Your blocks look sooo together! Your points are together precisely! I would love to be able to be so precise!! [​IMG] My blocks are going to be in 3 different backgrounds. One is a burnt orange, the other is an orange print and the 3rd is a blue print. I'm in the process of cutting. I just dislike this part most of all!! I want to be very precise, but they never quite come out the way I want. Oh well! It is what it is! [​IMG]

    I have Anna6's blocks!!!! Did I peek, nope (not yet) [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Thanks I a sure I just cut straight so trying to match would have driven me crazier,, I am going to do some in a couple of other browns and I do have an orange/brown fabric I'm going to use too, and I'm going to cut the squares a little bigger, I don't like doing a scant 1/4 I don't seem to get a good straight stitch line.
