    Ok, so looks like I didn't follow the directions as far as color placement. I was working from a black & white drawing. I'm going to do the swap one with your color placement Rhonda. Amazing how the blocks can turn out differently. I did have to undo a few of the BB as I didn't realize the two strips had to be reversed for some of the BBs.

    I'll PM you for a template.
    Am I thinking right, if the template is 2 1/2", the block will be 12".
    I love miniature, but know I could never do them myself.
    The directions for the Blocks will be the only directions you need. Once you have learned to make the Block as in Boston Block etc then it is just a matter of sewing the Blocks into a quilt block. I show the layout so you can see how to lay the blocks and where to put the colors. That is all you need. It isn't hard at all.

    I always post the link to the Block directions for that quilt block when I post the Quilt block. So once you have learned to make that then you should be good to go.

    Are you going to try again? Can we see pictures of your potholders?
