    I finally got all my BOM's from a couple of years ago done and realized that even though I used a 1/4" foot the blocks came out all different sizes. By the time they were trimmed down to match the smallest block I realized that I'd made a Safety quilt---there were no sharp points! LOL

    Yeah, I don't enter my quilts in any contests. They're made simply for my own pleasure and, hopefully, the pleasure of the people I give them to so points or no points as long as it's done it doesn't cause me much concern.

    You got us all! What a great title for a post. Guess I've made several safety quilts and didn't realize it. Thanks for the chuckle on a Friday night!!

    I love your humor, that was a good one. I enjoyed a laugh tonight, needed that. It is nice to look on the bright side. That is one way to make it fit. I guess there wasn't enough stretch to do it that way. HA HA

    I'm what Kay Woods calls a "pointless person"! I don't do well on matching my points, so I just shrug and tell myself that only God is perfect! :mrgreen:
