The square: Rail Fence
Why it's a Basic: it's a modified 4-patch: sew together 3 strips of fabric to create a 5-inch square
What I learned: Whew, this one was hard. I took those seams apart so many times, I resented this square. The problem? the 1/4 inch seam.
What I like about this square: It's done. I like the idea of it, but this particular Rail Fence was hard -- it's a whirligig of sorts, isn't it?
What I don't like: took a long time to conquer
Would I do anything differently: It was an early square and I'm not sure the tree fabric works ... but it has birdies on it, and I love the birdies

Just a reminder, this unfinished quilt was photographed on an ottoman and may not appear square, but it is!
