    From the Scraps...

    Oh dear, so many scraps left over from the making of my first five sets...What to do? What to do?

    Make fabric, of course! Stay tuned to see how this will be incorporated into my final set of blocks!

    My Final Set

    Here are the four blocks I made using the "made fabric" ---
    My six sets are finished. Now I must decide if I would like to do the twist!

    Now just how perfect are those blocks! What a great idea for using scraps. I am so loving the fabulous blocks being made for this swap. I've never been in a swap with a group of more talented people. Each and every block that I've seen has been great. I can't wait to see what I get back!

    som-- your blocks are 12.5" (unfinished) when you send them to me.
    These blocks will finish up at 12".

    Mariposa - I guess I need to get with you on where I need to send these blocks I don't mind telling you guys that I definately had my "challenges" with the half square triangles . . . some just didn't make the size (but I'm using them in other blocks - I couldn't let those stinkers get the better of me!!

    Thanks for looking . . . I really did enjoy conquering the hst (I think?).

    KLTQuilts, I like them all. There's not a dud in the bunch. I'm so glad to hear someone else say they are having sizing issues. My seams are a little larger than a 1/4 inch. Most of the blocks I've tried to make are 12 inches or 13 inches. The 12 1/2 size has been difficult. I tried putting something on the machine for guidance and it interfered with the right hand feed dogs. I've been struggling with that. Yesterday I saw a picture of a guidance cut around the feed dogs. Go figure. It's true a picture says a thousand words.

    I am so excited to receive blocks from this swap. They are all amazing. Will make a wonderful quilt for my Air Force son.

    Berryberry - I started using the right side outer edge of my presser foot as my guide, and that made such a difference with my final sizing Previously I was using a sticky note marking the 1/4" seam allowance which apparently wasn't working very well - go figure! Of course, I need to also say some of my blocks were sewn w/my Baby Lock Ellegante and some were sewn w/my (old work horse) Bernina 900. I did find what works w/one machine doesn't work with the other . . . ah the life of a quilter . . . As it turned out, I have "extra" blocks that need just a little "additions" to bring them up to size and they will work fine on my Red, White & Blue quilt
