Meagan's Quilter Bees Block

Meagan of Quilter Bees started us out with a great challenge. She sent an array of rich, solid colored fabrics and asked for a 12.5" square block with the theme "Them's a lot of squares".

[Them's is a lot of squares!}
Again, this block ended up a little different then I initially planned, but I am pretty happy with it. Another member had commented that squares are hard, and they really are. At least little squares are hard. Meagan had asked for squares 1" to 3" in size. I was able to stick with that, but I had to add the red fabric when I ran out of gray.
I'd like to make a whole quilt like this, but I think it would be one of those quilt tops that take years to finish, just adding squares here and there with scraps. And with larger squares.
Meagan, thanks for such a great block challenge! =]
