    Hi everyone

    I have four things down pat now and they are:

    Cutting Squares
    Running Stitch
    Beginning Knot and than Back Stitch
    Ending my Thread & Knot

    Now I need to practice more on my Triangles and get them down pat.

    I never could get my triangles right until I bought a ruler called triangle square up. Now I can make perfect half square triangles. I found the ruler at my LQS. Elenor Burns uses the ruler in her "Underground Railroad" quilt book. Amazing little ruler!!!

    here is the link to it http://www.quiltknit.com/RU295-TRIAN...AY_p_2519.html

    You Go Girl!!! :thumbup: :)

    The only issue I have in doing triangles, is making sure I watch those darn seam allowances. :roll: lol!!!
    I don't use a special ruler either.

    Thank you for your comment and what you said about the Triangles.

    I did cut out a few triangles just to practice cutting them out and than sewing them and I didn't think I did too bad of a job either.

    Congratulations on your practice and patience. You didn't list an accurate seam allowance. Get that conquered and your triangles will become easy-breezy! Good luck. Keep practicing.

    On my Practice Squares I've been doing a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
