    Well talk about being nervous..lol My boss gave me a bunch of blocks that her grandma had put together years ago and asked me to please put them togather for a reversible wall hanging. There were 2 different block sets and i looked at them and thought "mmm challenge". Once i got them home however i was sooo scared i almost backed out. lol Then my cousin "Artistic Design" as she is known here came over and boosted my courage. They were hand sewed and VERY out of shape. So i used my 10 1/2 in square to square them up and was able to attatch sashing to stablize them. Here is the result:
    p.s--Thanks So Much Cuz!! My boss LOVED it!!!!
