    I like the colours on my monitor, even if they are wrong (they look mauve on mine).

    I know your angst, patti, about the colors...mine aren't completely "true" on computer either.
    They are sooo pretty in person.
    They make me feel better about my sewing, LOL!
    Your block looks great and I think you did a great job. I don't see why they aren't just fine the way they are.
    Who but us, would even have an inkling that anyone had anything else in mind?
    They don't have any frayed edges, they are not wonky...they are great!
    I'd be happy with them. You done good, gf! :-D

    Mine meet up. It's just that they are frizzy on the ends. :cry: :cry: I haven't added anything to them yet. I thought I would put it aside for a bit and pull it out when I'm looking for some quick to do. I think I will cut the pieces out when I do them for my next four blocks. I also starch my pattern pieces, too. I didn't want to get everything out just to cut and starch four itty bitty pieces! :shock: :lol:

    Thanks for the compliments on my block - now, let's see yours!!!!!

    I thought I had finished all the blocks with scrolls until I pulled out block #30 & there, lurking amongst the leaves were 4 more scrolls. Oh, well, I'll get them all done one day!

    Ok, question. For those of you who are turning the seams under, how are you handling the tiny points? I do OK with points on leaves and wider shapes, but like the scrolls, that end point is almost impossible to hide, I end up doing a lot of gluing and pushing and more gluing and some trimming, but not totally satisfied with the end results on those. Any tips?

    Well Candi....on the ones that aren't hidden under something else, I just do the best I can. Trim away as much of the underneath turn under that you can, then tuck, take a tiny stitch, tuck...poke with toothpick, take a tiny stitch, tuck...stick out your tongue, poke with toothpick, say an ugly word or two, take a tiny stitch....then move on. Mine aren't perfect, but if you look in the book- Aie's aren't either. I figure the more I do, the better I'll get, so my blocks will tell a story of my improvement. I do my best and then move on... :)

    LOL, Pat, sounds similar to what I do, I guess it is the "in" technique, lol, only I am doing all of that even before I get to my background fabric since I pre- turn under, LOl, so I get to tuck and poke (I even use the small screw driver that comes with my machine,lol) both at the ironing board and the sewing machine, twice the fun for me :mrgreen:
