    Cathe,

    You're right the top triangle was too small. I had to redo it. Thanks for catching that before i sewed together.

    I havent sewed it yet. I have been reading all afternoon. I am on my 6th book in 5 days. I dont get to read as much when i am working. So whenever I am on break from work, I read like a mad man.

    Great positive attitude! Finish you're reading (I love to read too!) then get back to the sewing! We're all loving this!

    Henry,
    Un-sewing is part of the process. If you don't have a seam ripper get one. It is extremely valuable! Un-sewing is also called 'frogging!' "Rip-it, rip-it, rip-it!" and you can fix most anything at all!
    Your other option is to call it a design decision! "You did that way on purpose!" Oh, yes. No messing up big time in quilting. They're just design options!

    I have finished the reading now. Now I am about to go out to Dinner. The weather here has been so dreary all day and I am feeling a lil bummed. SO I am getting out of the house for a bit.

    Henry..you need to make mistakes in quilting. That's where we learn some of our best lessons. Your block is going to be nice, so make sure to show off the quilt when it is done.
