    Top is a picture of my second attempt to piece this flower! I had to unpick several times! The first one I attempted was dumped in in the trash! Note how beautifully square it is and the petals come to a nice "V" at the top. If I join it to anything else ALL the points will disappear into the seam allowance! ROTFL!

    The second one is an untrimmed or blocked block from today. Hopefully a whole lot better!

    So newbies, keep on trying, read a lot, look at lots of pictures and enjoy all the help and advice given here.

    Anyone else have pictures of "firsts"?

    And thanks always to my best friend who got me into quilting then said virtually, "That just not going to do it. Any other hobbies you like?"
