    Here we go - not much I could trim from the back of this one, apart from the 'bull's eye' in the middle.

    I was trying to avoid red, white and blue in the middle because the RAF have that on their planes and I didn't want to have that mental association going on every time I looked at it. Don't get me wrong, I am not against the RAF, I just didn't want it on my quilt.

    Ok lacylady here we go again with these scrolls and yours are just beautiful how large are your bloocks mine are 7" and my scrolls are small and not to easy to turn under there doesn't seem to be enough fabric to turn under if I just give it a 1/4 "then if I leave to much I have to much and it bunches up when turned and then there is not enough room to turn under when I get to the other side. What is the secret? I need some input

    I can understand why your scrolls are difficult on the 7" size they are teeny. I know Lesley did a 10" block size and so did I. Have you thought about doing reverse applique, might it be easier that way, just a thought.

    I baste mine round the paper shape first, that helps me.

    I'm doing ten inch blocks, but wondered if tiny "gathering" stitches in some parts would help "suck the fabric/seam allowance under?"
    Does that make any sense,...or would it be just as easy to use the fabric glue?

    Mousie, I use the gathering idea on the circles works like a dream, not tried it on the scrolls. I think its worth a try. Tell me how it goes please

    Lynnie..I'm doing the 7"ers. I haven't found an "easy" way to do the scrolls. I think we just have to go very slowly and just barely have enough to turn under. Too much seam allowance causes me more of an issue than too little I think.

    Looks as though Lesley and yourself will be setting the benchmark for this block Patti.

    We will all be watching with interest :-D
