Here's my block........

Because I messed up when I was cutting the background fabric, I decided to make my block from a piece the same size that I had sent to you all. I cut some 2 1/2" squares from the fabric and made a chequer board border piece. I cut the background down to 12 1/2" x 16 1/2", added the 4 1/2" border and ended up with my 16 1/2" square.

I ended up using a pack of squares from the Moda sampler box, 'Frolic' by Sandy Gervais. I love the oranges and yellows. I hope you're all ok with winging it?? I'm so looking forward to seeing what you all create.

Have a great weekend everyone, we're having a warm one again, love summer!!
