    Cool Update to my HELP!!! Why is this happening post. I think I got it!!!

    HELP!!! Why is this happening????

    So after 2 failed attempts at this piece of the block I think I have managed to get it right. The first time I sewed one of the sqs the wrong way. Then my blocks were completely distorted, so I posted a thread for some advice.

    Earthwalker gave me some great advice for preparing my fabric and Justabotcrazy told me to "
    make sure I am carefully stitching an accurate seam all the way to the end". I noticed that my angel guide I have doesn't seem to be too accurate to I will have to draw on the lines.

    Here is my completed piece using all the advice and it looks great, not perfect but great

    Thanks so much for posting an update - this looks great!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Slow and steady wins the race and I am sewing these little sqs to the white fabric and taking extra care to make sure my seam is spot on. I will not make this piece for a 4th time.
