    Ginny Beyer - doesn't she do all her piecing by hand? Is this done by hand? I bought her book and tried - but I really didn't like all the hand work and I really sucked at it.

    I like the first one best. I find it boring to make the same quilt twice in a row.

    I really love both your quilts. Can't decide which color combo I like best. I know what you mean about doing the same quilt back to back. I very seldom do that. I seem to get bored with the second one.

    I like the second one mainly because I like tourqois (sorry if I spelt that wrong) and it reminds me or Arizona.

    I have found that for me, it is no fun doing a second one - at least not right after the first - maybe in a couple of years or so. In doing counted cross stitch, I have a much harder time finishing the second one if it is the same as the first and follows right after.

    I like variety - would never do two alike quilts again. My first were twin bed quilts, identical. And the second was a true chore. Learned my lesson, altho the bedroom is really nice with the matching quilts and valances.

    I like the colors in #1 more but love both of them. Great job. I have 5 projects I'm working on at this time. It really is too much. I usually only have 2 or 3 but, I'll get them done.

    I love the first one. Probably the deep rich color! I try to accomplish one quilt before starting another.

    I like both colors. But I do agree, doing two of the same thing in a row is not for me. I made two granddaughters the card trick, by quilt in a day. Just different colors, and by the time I was finished with the second one, I was really tired of the pattern. I think that's why I jump from one thing to another, just to keep me fresh. I want to make the Lil Twister wreaths for Christmas presents next year. I want to make 5 more. But I won't do them in a row. I love the pattern and I don't want to ruin it for me.

    I am so new at this I want everything to be perfect. I do not mind doing the same pattern, by the time I am finished I know I will get all the kinks out. I do have a question and maybe you can help me.
    I made all the blocks 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 but when it came to making the angle blocks it seemed to be too small to fit. So I went and made them 3 7/8 x 3 7/8 and when I did the 1/4 inch seam they were also too small to fit in the 3 1/2 blocks. so I ripped the 1/4 seem and made them smaller which seemed to fit very well. What size should I have made them to fit correctly with 1/4 inch seems. And will it hurt my quilt if the seams are smaller.
