Thank you for your post! So far I have completed A-6, A-5, A-8, C-1, D-13, M-10. A-5 was the hardest so far. BUT I have managed to keep all my seams neat and my points are pointy! I just ordered a "Jelly roll" and an assortment of 5" civil war squares from e-bay to increase my supply of fabric. I use freezer paper to cut my pieces but I do not paper piece. I am doing them all by hand so I'm sure it will be many years before I am done. Thanks for all the advice and encouragement. Nice to know which ones to hold off on till the end. I purchased a tiny iron the other day to press open my seams. It was too hard using a regular iron....I steamed my fingers more than once. The only thing left to get is the triangle template and a matt to use my rotary cutter on. I've been using scissors to cut everything out. Going to see family next weekend so I will take my DJ along and afterwards post some pictures of all my blocks. How many blocks do you do in a week?
