    Here is what it looks like laid out before sewing. Is it good enough to sew?

    I finally tried sewing it and I totally screwed it up... LOL :lol:

    your pieces look well cut and sized correctly to each other. if you are pleased with the arrangement of colors, then go fer it, dude. :P

    all quilters need a few basic tools: good ruler; sharp cutter; good mat; needles; thread; seam ripper (at least i do :lol: ); scissors; tweezers; and a container for scraps.

    please take note, henry. self-doubt is nowhere on that list. your number one most important tool? faith in yourself. :P

    I can only see one thing.....turn your lower right hand corner square to match the design of the other 3... or vice versa....you have the design going in a different direction in that corner....otherwise...looks good

    Now to sew it together, you are on your way to a sampler. You did leave a seam allowance? You are progressing rapidly :D :D

    I think it looks good Henry. Be sure and let us see what the finished block looks like all sewed up. What are your plans for it?

    Actually, Henry, you might want to doublecheck the size of those triangles. They look like they might be a little small. Try sewing that block together before you cut any more.

    Henry,
    You're looking like a quilter here. My only suggestion is to iron your fabric flat before cutting your pieces. Wrinkles can mess up your measurements. (I have tried to short cut this before and believe me, it's not worth it!)
    Other than that if you're following the pattern measurements and cutting accurately you should have no problem.
