More Edinburgh Square

I've been preparing some blocks for the next quitting class for our Threads of Love group. I had several blocks already made up in blues/teals/grey scraps, but I wanted to show them what it would look like using only two colors.  I have a baby gift quilt to make and the nursery theme is Marvel Super Heros.  I found some fabric on Etsy and started with a few blocks yesterday.

I think it will turn out cute and match the colors of their nursery.  For a beginner it would be easier to use only two colors than multiple strips.  They won't have a stash to pick strips from.
Although I hope someone in the group will make it scrappy.  I'd love to see one made up with lots of different lights and darks.

If you are visiting from McCall's, remember to leave a comment letting me know you want to be entered for the magazine issue give away! Contest closes January 15th!

I love seeing this in just two fabrics; it helps see the design more. Or maybe I just like the fabric you used. Congrats on a great pattern and on being published!

I love this block! Think it would be great scrappy as well. Thanks for sharing.
