I've picked a winner and it is Gregg! Congratulations!
Here's what he (she?) said:
I love the simplicity and harmony of this block. In it, I'd use fresh blues and
greens offset with white. I might reverse block colors and alternate them when I
assembled the quilt. So many possibilities! I guess that's why I've just started
quilting - every piece can be so original even though the pattern might have
been done 1000 times before. It's such a wonderful mystery that old can be new
I love the sentiment!
Thanks to everyone who entered. I love reading what your vision for the block is. Such a creative bunch! It seemed like overall, red/white/blue and various shades of purples and greens were very popular!
