    I got all the pieces cut, then I started sewing them together, and the machine went phhht ... so I loaded everything up and went to LQS to finish up and encourage Operation 1161 quilters .... (and spend too much money) ... now, I am back home .... printed out the next two steps, have had my lunch ... going to take a nap.
    You aren't as entertaining over there as you would be if you were standing here with a whip in your hand or something LOL ....
    will catch up with you all after nap and cattle are fed ....
    when are we going to do another one???? :roll: 8)

    pinning would have helped mine, instead I used the pinch & pray method

    I pinch and pray all the time, the only time I pin is when I am marking the side I need to sew. they are great, don't worry about it, really, it would have been a bit easier if you had pressed your seams open.

    Most of my quilting is usually pressed to one side, it is just the small stuff that I press to open. it saves on the bulk when there is so little room to start with.

    Time to lay out the blocks. There are any number of designs that you can do, here is a sample of them, some only use a portion of the blocks but it gives you an idea what you can do with them.

    didn't use this one either
