Okay - ladies - I am going to ask for something else.  I know how hard this is going to be for you but we voted on a schedule and I don't think or mind that you have worked in advance of others but there are some women who will not be able to work as fast as you are and by your getting ahead of them they may get frustrated and quit and we want everyone to stay together so could you wait till the time frame for the block to post about it...

Not meaning to stimey anyone but we voted on a schedule and although it is hard to do it we should try for those who are only able to do that...

Your blocks are so pretty.  I had problems keeping my tears the same size.  But I decided Jane understood and it would be alright if my block wasn't perfect....LOL.  I have a feeling there will be others that are in the same boat as this block....LOL.  I am just thrilled that I am able to do these blocks at all ..especially with the hand piecing.

I am really enjoying the reverse applique as well.  I know that there is at least one or two more blocks in the lessons that lend themselves well to this technique.   Your block is very pretty.  My cross between my tears isn't even but I decided there were too many blocks to do to redo every block that wasn't perfect....LOL.  I have a feeling that I would be redoing lots of blocks.......

Nana,

your block is fine the way it is. It will add to the charm of the quilt. Besides, nobody is perfect and as Brenda said, "Finished is better then perfect." I wholeheartedly agree.

Amen.  I wonder if anyone has ever made a quilt that was "perfect".  I really doubt it.

Thanks, Nana and others. I have started three other applique blocks and am enjoying them. Chedked out the next lesson and the foundation pieced block does not look so easy. I agree that hey cannot possibly all be perfect. I had an instructor once, who said that quilters are ususally way to hard on themselves. Wnjoy the process!

  all of my quilts are perfect, and  if you don't believe me, ask my mom  : ).  she thinks everything i do is perfect.  i would have thought she would outgrow that years ago, but i'm not complaining.   gini
