Kris, I just finished this block...did you find the directions for cutting a little bit lacking or did I just misread them.  Yours looks a heck of lot better than mine, but as I always say, it is finished.

Karla, first let me say I love your block. That blue fabrics is gorgeous.

Second; I don't use the instructions in the book. I use EQ to make my blocks. I have found (from SBS) that the book rounds off the measurements. This is mainly to avoid sixteenths of an inch. This rounding makes the blocks come out not quite right. Maybe too small or too large or the pieces need to be "eased in". I don't mind using sixteenths as I know they're between the eighths on my ruler. If I can't rotary cut, due to funny angles, I print templates.

Wow, good to know Kris.  I don't have EQ so I'll have to fumble around with the book. At least I'll have an excuse if the blocks don't come out right. Thanks for the info.

Denise

Kris I love the Ghosties in your block.  And Karla your blues are wonderful!

Kris that is a good tip, however for those of us that don't have EQ any #, try cutting the triangles just a bit larger, like between an eight and a quarter.  I find that it is easier to trim than come up short.  And always use best press or some other kind of starch to make the triangles behave and not stretch out.

That said, here's mine.
