    I am so upset with myself :-( . About one and a half hours ago I did something wrong and I lost all my instructions for the rotary cutting for this week as I was typing them. I had to start all over again. What a bummer :( Anyway another week is here and we are 41.44% of the way to block completion. That's for those who are up to date. I wish I was up to date! I do have my fabric all picked out for the next several blocks. I have some more assembly work to do on this weeks blocks. I really would like to get caught up. Anne

    Anne, thank you so much for all of the hard work you have put into this project! I greatly appreciate it!!! When I moved I was about 12 blocks behind, you will catch up just fine :D

    Have you been able to figure out an easier pp pattern for
    #47? I am going to try and work at it some more this afternoon.

    Anne, so sorry to hear about losing the directions and having to re-do them! Thanks so much for all you for us here! We appreciate it!!!

    I enjoyed making block 45, but not 46. I don't think 46 is a particularly pretty block.

    When I did this block I sewed the 3 piece corners first.Then joined a corner to # 54- then added another corner. Repeat this step for the other side.I then sewed the other 2 # 54 to the center square. You now have 3 sections a top, middle and a bottom section. when you line up the middle to the top (do this for the other section too) pin the intersecions where the center block is then sew it using a fix stitch at the intersections. remove from the machine. you will then bring the ends of #54 & 55 together by placing a pin thru the points of both where they are supposed to be sewn. In order to get these 2 sections to lay flat to sew you have to fold the center block. place the section back on machine- bring the needle down in the intersection and continue sewing to the end. This is pivoting. some will do this in one fell swoop, all 3 sections at once, if you do that-when you get to the intersection (inside point)leave the needle in the down position- lift the presser foot- adjust the fabric so it lays flat, lower presser foot and continue sewing. I find that sewing this block in the 3 sections there's less handling and the block won't get distorted. There are no set in seams this way.

    Thank you Anne for all you do. I'm so far behind it's not even funny. Honestly I only have through 12 done. I'm not worried. Finally got my sewing room back so I'll slowly catch up. I enjoy the process, looking at everyone's blocks and reading the letters in the book, so there is no downside. It's all good. Again, thank you for the instructions. Have been a huge help.

    Hi, here is a scan of the backside of the block. you can see how the middle section-crosswise- lays flat after sewing. you can also see where the stitching starts-fixed- in the corners of the center square. You can also see a crooked seam :oops: ,I left it that way because the front turned out okay. Visuals always help. Anne

    Beautiful work, Anne. I love it. Working on getting there with mine...but I am not there yet. Yes, I am guilty of "fussy cutting" my material to put the picture where I want it in each block. Made up to #60, and quit making FWSQ blocks for a while. Doing a quilt pattern called "True Blue" from Miss Rosy. Also Blue rose pattern quilt, too. Winter blues, I guess.
