    Here are my Dinah & Dolly. I really love the pattern for Dinah and if I were clever enough with EQ7 (like OK--hint, hint) I'd see what it would look like as a quilt.Name:  27 & 28.jpg

Size:  81.1 KBMy Dolly changed her name to Dotty with dots or I guess a redhead with freckles. LOL! Always wanted to have twins with red hair and freckles. Double Trouble, double the fun.

    I thought Dinah was fun to make. Last week I thought I would cut out pieces ahead of time for some blocks. When I got to Dinah this week, I forgot that I had done that so I have an extra set of pieces to make another one with.

    I'm not satisfied with Dolly, but she is as she is.

    Very cute-reminds me of a table cloth my mom had when I was growing up.

    And here's Dinah. She turned out too big, so I'll be cutting off the points when I sew her into the top. Oh!

    Love how you got the arrow points in your block! I thought I was the only one with blocks of varying sizes; I'm thinking it's the patterns maybe?

    Jan, I'm totally consistent with the size of seams. I carefully cut out the templates exactly down the middle of the dotted line. I don't know why sometimes the blocks are too small and sometimes too big. It's only happened on about 4 or 5, but still, out of 30 blocks that's a sizeable percentage. I don't really mind adding a bit on the smaller blocks, but I don't like to have a larger block where I know I'll have to sew across the points of the block to make the seam line size be consistent with my layout pattern.

    I agree--I'm very careful with my seams and pressing. Majority are okay but a few of mine have turned out smaller, at 6 1/4" (unfinished) so it will be difficult to add a border. I guess I'll tackle that problem when I get to the sashing. Or I end up with a lot of mug rugs LOL.
