    Helpful hints/suggestion are very much appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

    I like them all. Nice colors. Please post when all finished. I'm a newby so I don't know what to suggest. I'm sure you will get some ideas.

    You are doing great. Pressing your seams will make your blocks look more precise too. I love your fabrics, much better than the fabrics for our local shop hop.

    Thanks for sharing,

    What very pretty fabrics you are using in your sampler blocks. This will make into a beautiful quilt! My only suggestion is to check your seams to make sure they are 1/4", if they are all your corners will come together perfectly.

    I think you are doing well. Love your colors. I know mine blocks aren't always perfect. Just takes practice. Keep on sewing.

    Great colors. Looks good to me and the only suggestion I have is to press.

    I would say make sure your seams are pressed flat as well...nothing wrong with the sewing they look great...well done.

    Yes, do check! You will lose your points on the second block but we have all done that. I have! See how the points on #1 have a 1/4 inch beyond the point? That is your seam allowance so you get good points, #2 doesn't have that. Just a "pointer" so now you can beware.

    Ditto on the second block. Attention to seam size and pressing are good pointers!

    You've got a nice colour scheme going ... and interesting blocks.

    Curious? You call this a shop hop quilt ... what is that? different pattern from each store? samples given by the stores? or what?

    I agree regarding an accurate 1/4 inch seam allowance. I could not get accurate, consistent seams until I got a 1/4 inch quilting foot.

    Beautiful blocks though. I think purple and green together is striking.

    We've probably all done that! I didn't even realize why I was losing my points at first. Live and learn. It will be beautiful anyway and only YOU will notice!
