    I know it is my first swap on here do some on flicker. And I can be a perfectionist especially when shipping to someone else. I am going to take remake that one and try to do what Deb stated to make sure they turn out the correct size since we have till October.

    Gosh no, I haven't even started sewing. I need to go through my stash or get to a QS. But I do intend on making (at least) more then one set! ....Call me crazy!

    Is my Boo Boo ok with everyone or do I have to go buy more fabric and fix it?

    Best way I can think of to make sure your points are good is when you are sewing the 1/4 seam, make sure your needle goes right over where the two threads make the X on the geese . Nice colors for the blocks I am seeing!

    Looking good on colors and mine will fit in nicely. Still have not sewn them up but have the 4.5" hst done. I am using the paper piecing method (sheets 8x10) to make my 2.5" HST. This way less trimming as long as I press and not iron. I get a little heavy handed sometimes. Just ask my kids

    You can make as many sets of this as you want. The most I have had come in any swap was 5. Karen was real active!!!! Three seems to be pushing it a bit, some do two.....most only do one set......do what you are comfortable with!!!

    I guess no one noticed the boo boo on my block except me. I will have to tell you. My light fabric is a directional one and I didn't realize this until I did all four blocks then I saw the BOO BOO. Should I go buy more fabric ???
