    Dear Jane - Easy? I think not!

    Too hot to hand quilt the big King I'm working on so here's more of Row E. Some fancy piecing here. E5, 6, 7 & 8. I was really "afraid" of E7 but I did it as snowballs and added the bands (sewed down one side, folded under and appliqued the other side. So proud!) Not pleased with the uneven"rays" of E5 but will accept it as it lines up with my pattern. *sigh*

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Beautiful blocks...I was going to start one but for the life of me I can't get the blocks the right size. Is there a secret ? I tried a few blocks and they were all over the place as far as sizes. So I did the easy thing..quit!

    Moving right along... it certainly does not look easy to me. I wanted to do one but I have hesitated because I do not like working with small pieces. Maybe one day. You are doing an excellent job. Sandy 64

    I use freezer paper piecing, Crqltr. Can't sew it wrong doing that! Here's the method I use:

    Try one block and see how it goes!
