    These are awesome! What size are they? I am just about to start my own improv what a bunch of squares quilt, and I can’t decide how big to make the final blocks.

    I like the thin lines on these blocks!
    I only found your blog a couple of weeks ago and it inspires me to get into the sewing room. I have always liked what white does to a quilt. You use it perfectly!

    Great blocks – But I’m not sure if I love the Hope Valley line. I have all of Denyse schmidt’s flea market fancy (almost all) and Katie Jump Rope and even the home decor fabrics but the new line doesn’t grab me like her other line.

    What do you think? Do you love the line? How does it compare?

    Tonya – These blocks are 10.5″ (I only have a FQ of each of the printed fabrics, so I opted for smaller blocks so I could make more of them)
