Roxana, The beige fabric on this one is really interesting.  Love the movement and the whole block for that matter.

Here is my block.  Not sure what happened but it's a little off.  But it's as good as it's gonna get.

Mimi, I really like yours. I don't see what's off. I like how your background stands out. 

Here's my blue & white for today. One at a time.  Maybe, just maybe, I will go for two tomorrow. :)

Carolyn, Did you follow the instructions in the book? This block is driving me crazy because I cannot seem to get the 1/4" seam allowance needed along the perimiter of the block. What am I doing wrong? I am embarrassed to say how many times I have cut new pieces, re-sewn and ripped-out.

Pat, have you tested your seams? Cut 3 strips 2" wide. Sew them together. They should measure exactly 5" across.  I found that I was not cutting exactly because I'd slant my rotary cutter just slightly. That could make a difference. I've often wished someone would invent a rotary cutter with a built in level.

It's very challenging trying to get that perfect 1/4" seam.

 


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
