Hi all, I finally got my block finished ,but I'm a little disappointed in it, this is the first one I left the paper on to put together, as you can see my circle is really off, so guess I will not do that again, I am going to leave it as it is a lot to rip out ,I really thought i was getting it lines up straight , BOO HOO.. This block has a lot of seams ,but with good pressing I got them to lie down without to much problem. Barbara

Oh Barbara,

I love your Kaleidoscope block. Very nicely done. The circle doesn't really look "off". I had not noticed at first look.

I really love them all together so far. I call dibs on this one if you feel the need to give it away when you're  done.

Barbara, haven't been here in a while so I have not been keeping up on the compass progress.

Love all of them.

I did not notice the center of the latest until I read your comment.

Nice job. 

Someday I will get some paper piecing done.  Just too many irons in the fire.

Wow Barbara they look amazing. I can't see your circle being off either. I have only printed off the patterns not started sewing any yet. Seeing yours all done has lit a fire in me so I want to try them now.
