    I did too! I got tired of trying to stretch them out to be the 6 1/2 inches. I'd be so-o close but not quite there so I'd dampen them and press while pulling just a little.
    your colors are so calming, i like them.well, the blocks are all pretty.

    Thank you, some of them gave me a time making corners and points to meet. Glad I started with all of you. Many pretty blocks have been made.

    Thank you guys. I'm trying to keep up. And it means so much to me to have this board - it certainly keeps me going. I love that we can live in all parts of the world and get together and see each other's progress. I am going to try to post more on the board - I look all the time so I need to make my presence known! I get so much inspiration from everyone.

    Whoah - good luck witht he stipes, Cyndi. I have not had good luck with them but I love them so will keep trying. Can't wait to see what you do. None , I mean, None of my blocks are perfect. And I am okay with that. Learning all the while.

These two were fun to make and a nice change after some of the more challenging blocks.
    OMG - love the stripes! They are perfect!

    Okay - I am trying everything but am not getting all my points to match. It's getting better but not perfect yet. Jeez! I pin and everything. Oh well, I think this is a situation where practice makes perfect. Thank you for not allowing the quilting police in here!
    Roxanne - I am humbled by your matching points, Honchey!
