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.
    Macie, one thing I have learned is to sew your 1/4 in seam and then accurately measure the finished seam, sometimes our tools that are supposed to make 1/4 inch seams are not accurate. As far as hurting the finished project, you just might want to quilt it a little closer to strengthen it if your seams are smaller., Rita

    they are both beautiful, it would depend on where i was going to use it.
    i agree about needing variety between projects. i want colors and patterns to be varied. i think i pay better attention that way and enjoy the journey.

    They are both very nice. I'm with you, though. I keep a pattern after I make the item. But, I've never gone back. Life's too short - I want to try something else. You did very well on both.

    I LOVE the first one! On your other question, I'm a hand piercer/hand quilter so I like to have 2 projects going at the same time. Sometimes I feel like piecing and other times I want to quilt. It's nice to have a choice.

    Stunning! A nonquilter would never realize they were of the same pattern..

    I think I like the first one better, but they're both gorgeous! Great job! And yes, I tend to get bored just doing the same thing over and over. It helps to have several things going at once, so you can change from one to another when you get tired of one.

    I really like the first one, those are my colors. Contrast really pops in this one.

    I would be more than happy to be able to say that I had made either one of them if I were you. You did a wonderful job on both, keep up the good work.

    Well, I like them both. I can't tell that either is done better than the other. Nothin' like repeating something successful.

    I like both colour choices - I'll be doing her garden quilt next, so I hope it is not as messy as another board member has suggested.

    I like them both and I'm like you... once I've made a quilt I feel like I've conquered the pattern. No sense in making another just like it because it no longer has any challenges for me.
