It's just strips sewn around a square ... what could be hard about that right?
Dunno, but I found it a bit challenging keeping them square. Perhaps I just wasn't giving the block the respect it deserved.
Our May Ausbee Queen gave us this tutorial to work off, but only wanted three rings around the original square.
Inner square is 4"
1st ring is 2"
2nd ring is 1.5"
3rd ring is 2.5"
The colour choice was Blue, Red and Purple. The only rule being that the 1st ring around the square was to be white. I didn't have any of these colours, especially purple...
So I popped into a brick and mortar quilt shop called Quintessential Quilts (no affiliation) for some much needed help in fabric selection. Thank you ladies, I think we come up trumps!

Once our Queen receives her blocks she's going to quarter them and arrange them as per the tutorial. I think it's going to look lovely and I look forward to seeing her finished quilt.
Now I'm off to pop these in the post!
