    I should tell you that I did this while working on a log cabin quilt in queen size. It took me a long time but eventually I finished the quilt and could stitch a perfect 1/4 inch seam! I'm not much for practicing just for the sake of practicing. I want a product!

    I thought I had squared off. I am making hotpads which I thought were so easy when I used another pattern. I will continue to try and hopefully I will get the hang of it. Thanks for the comments. They help.

    I need to find a quilting class that will help me address my concerns. I am not doing something right or my project would be square. I will continue trying. I may go back to my original pattern I learned to do and after the holidays practice when I am not in a rush to get my XMas treasures done.

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL.

    Now that the Thanksgiving Holiday is over, I need to concentrate on my quilting projects again. After having so much difficulty with my first project, I am going to start an easier pattern and take my time measuring, I have decided on some smaller projects like X-Mas Coasters. I may try a Holiday runner with the Jelly rolls and squares and triangles. Wish me luck.

    Thank you Etta. I want my projects to be my pride and joy. I am finding when I get frustrated with a missed measurement, I walk away for a few minutes and come back to it. My little mistakes, I know are beginners mistakes. Seam ripper is very close by and I use it a lot. Happy Holidays.

    Amma, I tried that yesterday and it works. Slow is best. I have so many ideas and so little time. Christmas is so close and I have a lot to accomplish. Enjoy this holiday season.
