Modern Block Monday - How Many Squares?

First, I want to say a big thank you to the wonderful members of the Richmond Area Quilt Guild for giving me such a warm welcome Wednesday night. I had a blast with you!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I was away at a ringette tournament in Montreal this past weekend -- without the family, which felt very weird. Four games in two days has left me very stiff and sore today. We did well in the round robin games, but got walloped, both figuratively and literally, in the semi-finals. It's been a long time since I've played a game that was that rough and out-of-control so I'm very thankful that I'm just sore and not injured. It felt a little more like roller derby than ringette. LOL!

Welcome back to Modern Block Monday! It may not always be on a Monday from now on, but it is for today. When Tabatha at Bending Pins showed me her How Many Squares? Puzzle Block, I knew I had to give it a go. It's based on the viral How Many Squares Puzzle that's been circulating on Facebook. Tabatha's tutorial is excellent! I made mine scrappier than hers for no good reason other than I wanted to use a lot of different purples, but I think I'll give it another go the way she did it.


So how many squares do you see in this block? Hint: There are more than 24.
