Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Could you picture taking 225 bolts to the cutting counter and asking for 1/4 yd of each?!

As I was positioning my melons I measured to make sure the ends would come to the sew line. I didn't want to lose any points. Same as when I make flying geese. It irritates me when I lose a point. But then I think that in the overall scheme, no one is going to see if I lost a point. Galloping horses, anyone???? LOL
[QUOTE=Bettia;4912743]Is anyone here using different fabric for each block?
I'm doing an Around the World color pattern too and all my main colors will be different in each block. I'll reuse background though but not many times per print. I have all my fabs color cordinated in a big container and as I use one I move it to a new container. It's working for me

Very nice blocks Kallie! I especially like the fussy cutting details on C1. Good job. I may have to copy that idea since I haven't done week two's blocks yet- LOL :-)
I'm so mad I could spit!!! :-( :-( I just finished A1 which really confused me until I went to That Quilt and found out that Brenda had made a mirror image in her book. I finished it and was cutting it to size. My DH -- and he is really the most loving darling -- BUT -- he came in and brought me a cup of coffee and I cut one side 1/4 inch short.
The good news is that it was a row so it will be fairly easy to remove the row and do it over. It would have been a bess if it had been a side instead of a row.
Tomorrow will be a better day. Mim
Mim, sorry you cut your block tooo short. i learned, like you prob did, as soon as the hubby sits beside the machine, i laid down whatever i was doing. he started saying, "go ahead, i want to watch, and talk". I told him i was painting with material, i couldn't go ahead, while he was talking about 'business, bills, kids, the world, etc, and expected replies."
for sure, i would cut or snip, or sew wrong, if i was doing anything else.
on another note, i'm scared, i need to do my scallops. i've been reading everything i can find on them. did practice ones, and didn't like them. i realized why, i didn't add the l/4 inc around the edge of the scallop, so each point between was deeper. which made a little fold of material. need to practice some more, before i am happy with them.
