Size:  1.01 MB I made another Barrister block since the first one I made was using the twelve inch block pattern. I did lose a couple points but I'm more interested in some of your pointers using triangles. I double checked that I cut the correct sizes before I bisected the squares. I think my issue is due to stretching and that I found myself ironing instead of pressing. Your comments and tips are appreciated. Thanks! Pam

    Well learning from experience, I over-cut squares for HST...If it calls for say, 2 1/2", I cut at 2 5/8" or even 3", then trim to size...Takes a little bit longer to do, but safer. Always make sure your 1/4" seam is a scant 1/4".. Even if you sew a 1/4" seam, the thread takes off a little so takes off the true size of the HST. I always 'try' to make sure there is a 1/4" at the edge so when you sew block (pieces) together, you have a seam width there so as not to sew off a point. I hope this helps - I'm sure others have other ideas. I like your blocks, very pretty.

    This is the Grandma's Choice block I made last night. It's probably going to "float" on the back of a Project Linus quilt I'm currently making. I enjoyed making it and like the result.

    Never regret. If it's good, it's wonderful. If it's bad, it's experience.

    Great job, ladies. Glad to see everyone enjoying this.

    I was just thinking earlier, there are still a few who haven't posted their block(s) for this month. I hope things have just gotten in the way and you'll get one or the other finished before end of the month. There's a lot that wanted to sign up to do the blocks but haven't heard or seen any action from them - I'm sure you know who you are...lolo It would be nice to see your block(s) before end of the month. Thanks..
