Any tips?
    I beat them down with a hammer!!!!! :shock: :shock: If that doesn't work, I start saying things that would make my mama want to wash my mouth out with soap!!!! :shock: :shock: :shock: :oops: :oops:


    Actually, we have all been complaining and fussing over those itty bitty narrow points. :cry: :cry: I can get some of them to come out reasonably well, and then I will have some that just won't no matter what I do. I'm making the 7" blocks so I don't know if those who are making the larger blocks are struggling as much as us 7"ers.

    Patty, you will find this really weird...I made the 7" blocks for the center and then I enlarged the blocks for the outer border, so I'm working on 10" blocks now. When I first started the larger ones, I thought..wow, these are easier...but now, I don't think so...You have so much more fabric to roll up so you don't squish wrinkles into it the I have a hard time holding the little points down with my left thumb when I am stitching! (Well, DH does occasionally say that I would gripe if I was hung with a NEW rope!) LOL!

    Dh says the same thing to me "you would complain if you were hung with a brand new rope"
    and I tell him "OF COURSE I WOULD, if it was new it wouldnt snap in the fall, I wouldnt be able to make a get away! if you REALLY love me at all you would give me a 50yr old rope!!!" :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Kathy, I think your block is beautiful. The oranges make it look warm and inviting and then your beautiful aqua center reminds me of an oasis where you can cool off. Great job.

    Pattis, that block is gorgeous! Love your bright colors. I really need to get back to mine. Haven't worked on any of them for a couple of months.

    I love your blend of colors, Pattis and your workmanship looks great. :thumbup: :thumbup:
    IvoryThimble it's not too late to jump in and join us. Some of our group started early, JTG, jumped the gun, but there are others of us who will be working on this for months to come. We'd love to have more company. :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Even some of us who started early will still be working on it for months to come. I got sidetracked a couple months ago and really need to get back to it. So come on in Ivory Thimble, it's never too late.

    amen to that! I just talked to a friend yesterday that has one block done, and I only have two and somebody else said the other day she was going to join.
    Nobody's behind...just several ahead, lol! :thumbup:
