Block is done!

The block is done, now to do the background and some liberated letters...hmmm, well I like the black as background...but what to say? How big do I want to make it? the block measures 18 x18.

I could put 'Plaid' above and '-tastic!' below...? or make it round the corner... plaid on the left side and -tastic! on the top.... and then in what colours?

or I could just put my initials and 2010 on bottom right....doing the block was easy compared to this part.

the words are the hard part! I think I will do name and dates. I like Plaid tastic!

it's wonderful! don't give me that - you're great at making letters. actually your initials and year would be great. very simple so as to not take away from the middle bit.

That is one cool block! Lots of movement, no? Your letters will only enhance it!

Initials and the year. You don't want to detract from the centre.

Sorry...typo in my original comment.

I really love this block!!! The colors are great and I love all the movement. I agree with limiting the words/letters to maybe your initials and year so as not to detract from this gorgeous block. Thanks for sharing.

it's great and lively with lots of movement. congrats! why don't you name the quilt Plaid-tastic, but use your name and date as the words instead. otherwise it might be overwhelming.

Thanks for all your suggestions! I agree the Plaid-tastic word will be too much...I think I will border the block in black and put another thinner contrasting border, then black and my initials in there...I may even do some wonky 16 patch corner squares...maybe.
