Skill Builder QAL - Courthouse Steps

Hurrah!  It is month 6 in Fat Quarter Shop's Bella Skill Builder QAL.     You can find the pattern and a video tutorial for this month's Courthouse Steps here.

My favorite thing about this QAL is the opportunity to try blocks I've never made before.  Pineapple blocks, orange peels and now courthouse steps!

I played with two favorite color combinations with these blocks.

I am partial to the blue ones myself.

You can see posts of the rest of my blocks by following the links below:

I started laying them out to match the final layout.  Doesn't look so impressive thought with the big gaps. (That's my new hardwood floors peeking through.)

Lots of wonderful quilters are quilting along - check out all these wonderful versions -
