I got a good start on the Jan square, but it took until yesterday to get it finished. Hope you like it Jennifer - I had a great time working with the solids, and I loved the subtle differences that came from the free cutting, though I'll admit I did use my ruler as a guide about half an inch away from where I was intending to make the cut, and I estimated pretty wide. I ended up trimming quite a bit to get to the 8" squares, but I think it worked out in the end. It went in the mail today.
I am excited about Amy's February square, and I've already cut out the pieces... now to wait until the kids are up from their naps so the sewing machine doesn't wake them up :)
