Oh, I see...the turned corners don't bother me at all since it depends on how you have the quilt :lol:, but I guess the bobbin thread is a little different issue. I swear, I hate to pick soooo much, that if I had enough fabric, I'd just make another and use this one for FMQ practice :wink:

my bobbin wasnt threaded right and I didnt even notice until the block was done! and I HAD to turn the corner pieces! those updsidedown chickens were mocking me.

YAY! its all fixed :D I know what you mean about unpicking :P it is NOT something I like to do either, I have been cutting extra pieces of everything so I can toss it aside if I dont like it! but... I didnt have extra of the chicken wire print. sigh... so I HAD to unpick, YUCK.
