Your squares are all looking SO GOOD! And very quick off the mark this month too.

Lovely square. I like the corners too :-)
All your squares are going to look wonderful together.

I've fallen behind - I'm trying to finish a swap of 6" squares, and I lost enthusiasm. I'll get started on this square soon.

LOVE the center on this one. Really enjoying the variations of the squares despite using the came colors in each. At some point it'd be nice if you could post a pic of all you've done so far... in close proximity... so we could see them as a group (or perhaps you'd planned only to do that when they're all done). Would be fun to see all the differences at one time.
