Jelly Roll Quilt Along 3

I finally finished block 3 of the jelly roll quilt along. It took me a bit of frogging on this one. I stitched it on a machine in SC but the 1/4 inch seam wasnt a true 1/4 inch.  I finally decided to rip it and start over. Still the fabric stretched a bit but overall I think I can make it work in the quilt.

Here are my first 3 blocks. I am thinking I will have to encorporate that brown again to make this look cohesive.
This weekend I spent time in our flower beds...weeding. In addition to that, I am getting ready for my Quilt Away weekend coming up.  I prepped quite a bit for that. Could be fun!
p.s. thank you for all the wonderful comments on the Chocolate Stars quilt!!
I love to hear your comments.

Ahhh, unsewing, just one of the few hazards of quilting. The blocks look beautiful though and you would never be able to tell.

I love your blocks! I also agree, you should add a little bit more brown. Otherwise, I think that I love it.

"Still life with seam ripper". I'm very familiar with that picture:) Your blocks look good and by the time you're finished with them, will all play together nicely I'm sure.

Chocolate Stars is great! I especially love the large size, which surprised me when I read your tutorial. Terrific job.

Pretty pretty! I need to go check out the 4th block. I wasn't near my computer for most of the day yesterday.
