I came back sick from my trip and I can see that there is no rush lol....I don't need to get caught up yet. I felt like doing something yesterday so I made this "A" block out of the Shirley Libby software. I have been reading the board for a week as I couldn't do anything else and found the ABC quilt someone posted and it just called to my little pile of Aunt Gracie. I will do this alphabet while I work on the Farmers in between.

I thought Addie would be simple, and I'd just use the templates. First I quickly sewed the 8 HST, ironed them, then realized I'd made squares instead of triangles! I didn't want to cut tiny triangles again, so seam ripped the squares. The good thing about 6" blocks is seam ripping a seam is quick as they are about 1" long. :-p Then I sewed the block, and it was too big. Oh! Duh, I cut the pieces leaving the dashed line on the templates, they have a 1/4" seam allowance, and I always sew using a scant 1/4" seam. Seam ripped the whole thing, trimmed pieces without measuring anything, sewed it again, and then saw that none of the pink triangle's points meet well. :-(

The seal of approval is always my husband. He said, "Oh! That's cute!" But he is trying to repair the washing machine pump, so I'm not sure if he really looked at it. Maybe I'll make Addie again another day, but today it's 'good enough!' :-)

Sometimes it's just one of those days. Your critters are so cute -- bees and butterflies!

I paper pieced Addie and mine came out to only 6 1/4", instead of 6 1/2". Anyone else get a smaller size?

All my blocks are 6 1/4", don't know why but as long as they're consistent I'm okay with it.

I had to increase the size 100% on my blocks before printing...did you do that? The default was only 98.6% for some reason...
