    it looked easy

    but its the worst quilt I've made.its about my 5th quilt . the blocks came out crooked and mis-sizedand my points don't match. i started out on curves and my blocks came out
    nice and even and my points match..maybe someone else
    has tried this pattern and can tell me if it worked for them.
    Trade Winds for Bali Pops. First time I used jelly rolls and of course I failed to pick a contrasty enough fabric for the triangle.

    I like it too.

    As for your points not matching - I don't see it. Stand back about 10 feet - if you can't see the points that don't match, they don't exist. :)

    It has a wonderful watercolor look to it and softly spins. My eye wandered over it and liked the feel it has.

    You are too close to the subject!! Keep it or give it to someone who knows nothing about quilting...and they will adore it!!!

    I think it looks great! The things that are bothering you are really not very noticeable. We're always more critical of our own work.

    Just an FYI - Bali Pops (any brand really) are not always cut exactly at 2-1/2"...that may be one reason you had difficulty. Another tip is to use spray starch on anything that will end up with bias edges once you start cutting.

    I like it a lot. It's probably the bias edges that caused your troubles. They get wonky so easily.

    I like it. Points matching - at one time I was obsessed with that, and therefore very discouraged. Then I saw a quilt on a quilting magazine cover where the points didn't match...and stopped worrying about it.
