    Well, even if you didn't like them, you did a great job with them. You might like it better with a little practice :lol:

    Stunning! I have no idea how you kept it all organized to sew together. That boggles my mind. Any hints??

    It's beautiful. I am learning I don't like the either.

    I just love that quilt. Your choice of colors is very "Louisiana." It reminds me of the Mardi Gras season. The pattern is gorgeous. Wish I had the pattern.

    A lovely job. I too have some trouble with those half squares, but there are so many wonderful blocks that have them..........I just keep at it.
    As someone else said, they get better with practice. Don't give up. You may want to do another basket weave and give it to a loved one.

    Have you ever tried the half-square method where you begin with 2 squares, right sides together, draw a line diagonally, stitch a quarter inch on each side of the line, cut on the line. You end up with 2 squares. It works so well. No stretching, etc. The square must be cut larger than the finished size.
