Quilt Blocks : 12" Hashtag Quilt Block

Finally, completed the hashtag quilt block from this month's sew-along at Sewcanshe.
I made a 12" quilt block which was not so easy to make but managed to complete it. First I made a 5 " inch block using the same technique but later realized that a larger block is easier to make.
