So here's how the project went. First, I had to choose fabric. I had ordered some fat quarters from Intrepid Thread, not to long ago, and I pulled them out. Yep, still tasty. And, they will go well with the brown that I seem to be using for background, etc for these projects. Here's a look out in the sun, yesterday.

I laid out the pieces a couple of different ways, looking at how they would work best together, and show off to their best advantage. I really had planned for the brown to frame the block, and I went with that, although I continued to play with the prints. That was how far I got on Saturday.
It took a little more than an hour to get the whole thing stitched together. I think it turned out pretty good. Not perfect, but pretty good! If the block looks a little wonky, that is because of my cutting, and sadly, not intentional. (Intentional wonky-ness is cool.) I'm sure the whole thing would have come out better with more practice all around, but of course if I had that practice under my belt all ready, I wouldn't need the class.
