I finally got a chance to do my block today ,as usualy mine is done with 30;s reproduction fabric, I think it came out okay .Barbara

Wow Barbara!  You did an outstanding job on this one.  30's fabrics aren't my usual cup of tea but this could change my mind.:-)  I just love what you've done!!!!

Thanks everyone ! 

This block was a learning experience.  I tried finger pressing instead of using the iron.  If you look you'll see that my points are not matching as well as they should. So lesson 1 is to press with the iron always!  Lesson 2 was that I shouldn't be so lazy and try to use the same color thread ( I use a light taupe ) for everything.  For these I need to switch to black thread. :o)    Oh well, this is why I am doing this.  To learn.  So, yipee, I'm Learnin' !!!!

If you don't like the thread after you have sewn it, just use a permanent marker on the thread where it shows.  Gail in NH

Great idea Gail! I will have to try that. I also always use the same color thread for piecing too.
