I decided to just make a crazy quilt. I have some scraps to do this with.
I found out that this works great for beginners because I have to see how pieces fit together. Even if they don't fit perfectly, I can trim the wrong side of the square.
Here is the first square. I finally cut it down to size, 12 inches by 12 inches, but haven't photographed it yet. I want to embellish it some more.
