    OKSGlad--Your 2nd block looks great! I do like the fabrics used in both. I have fabrics cut for Elsie's Fav but haven't sewn curves in a block before (just clothing where it doesn't have to lay flat) so we shall see how that goes!

    OKSewglad, thank you for posting your "imperfect" block--makes me feel much better about mine LOL. Ggal is right-the markings didn't line up at all, it was kind of hit-or-miss, mostly miss. I really like your substitute; colors and construction are great.
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    Oksewglad, I love your second Elsie. I saw you made the same mistake I did with the first Elsie!

    Thanks everyone. I have sewn curved blocks before--in fact have a whole quilt with some. I was doing okay until the second round and once I saw I was having trouble I just didn't care if it came out even. So the block is trash. I figure if I'm not enjoying the ride then pass the block. This is my quilt, not the book's. At the same time, my humble homage goes out to those who mastered the piecing.

    Elsie looks like a very contented cow and enjoying her change of scenery!!!

    ITA that block needs better markings ... matter of fact, how about markings, being that there were none, from what I remember!

    Well I was able to start Doe&Darts yesterday and finish today. Some of the y-seams just went together and then others didn't like me so much...I'll need to square this one up for sure!

    I have Ella's Star about half done...should be able to finish tomorrow.

    Carrie - looks like your blocks ended up just fine. I know I had to re-sew a couple of mine too. I love the color combo you used on this one!
