    I also love this one - am heading right over to the scrap bin to see what I can come up with. Also like the idea of using a smaller square so there is not so much negative space. My FMQ is not up to that!

    If you were doing 5 inch squares how wide would you make your strips? Still 2.5 inches? I would think that you might need narrower like 1.5 inches. Not sure. What do you think?

    That's a great question! I think this would be cute done with patriotic fabrics and solid gold.

    Well, here's another one to add to my list!
    I am thinking I might like to try it with 5" squares and also sash the blocks to make the stars float.

    And Jenny's Tarzan call sounds just like mine! LOL

    My thoughts also. Then another question : use a 5 inch block which would be a finish block of 4 1/2 inch or have 5 1/2 inch blocks for a finish block of 5 inch?

    I think most of us are looking at a 5 inch block. My FMQ is not good enough
    for the neg space. Maybe in Christmas colors, baby colors. Let's all do a sample
    block and see what we come up with!
