    The Flowers on the pattern I printed of are only 5/8" is this correct? For some reason this seems really small so I wanted to verify. I realize we are only using a 6 1/2" block but wanted to check.

    Thanks again for all your help!!!
    I can't wait to see your quilt. I haven't used wool before but it can be stunning.

    Can't wait to see your wool quilt, please post a block, it must be beautiful.

    I opened the PDF file, at top of the screen there is a box that indicates what size the pattern is viewed at. When I opened it it showed 75% and the pattern measured 5/8".

    Be sure that it is set at 100%, when I changed it to 100% , the flower now measures 3/4", which is the correct size.

    Also check your printer that it prints the correct size.

    Hi gal288 can you please refresh my memory again :(
    Is 6 1/2" back ground fabric the actual size of the finish block? looks like the 1/4" seams will cut some of the leaf. You know what i mean? Sorry i am not good at explaining :( have a good day :)

    You'll do it! It will be good to see you back with us. Just use it as incentive to get your other stuff done first. I have to finish two blocks and a wall hanging before I can start on this months BOM. It will get done eventually. I'm not a fast quilter.

    We had nice weather today but tomorrow rain, I wonder if Spring is coming this year? Just saw my first Robin this past weekend, so late this year.

    Forgive me - but I just discovered this block of the month. If I started now - how behind am I? How many have there been for this quilt?

    There isn't any hurry to be done by a specific pace. We are only on the third block. Join us! I have only done two blocks myself but it's a great bunch of people to hang out with and discuss the blocks also.

    And another thing---do all these blocks go with other blocks or are they random ones. Like I see a church block and a farm house block. Do these go with the Baltimore or where are other Baltimore blocks? Sorry I'm sorta slow here.

    If you go here:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-96076-1.htm

    you'll see what the final product will be similar to. The other BOMs are separate from this one.

    I'm learning how to machine applique with this quilt and I was so worried about doing these corner blocks because the flowers and leaves were so small, but they turned out okay.

    Beautiful, looks like you did button hole applique stitch around the smaller hearts. Nice touch
