I have four of the nine blocks done. When I cut some of the brown strips I made them too large (better than too small) so had to trim them, otherwise this is going together very well. I have five more blocks to put together then I work on the layout and add the extra brown fabric for the rest of the background. I also have to decide if I am going to add a top and bottom border of colors just to finish it off. I 'll know better once I have most of it together.
