They are quick and easy to make. My biggest problem is that I am sorely lacking in light/medium low volume blues required for the background. I found a little piece enough for three blocks in with my patriotic fabrics and that's about all I can find. So I have three for the drawing.
Nann asked me to test the pattern and so I used gray for the background so I think I will make one myself with gray backgrounds. I still haven't put away the school themed fabrics I had out when I made a school of fish quilt top so I guess I see some school books in my future.
