    Thank you very much!

    I tend not to trim much of anything, but I will think about it for sure, that or just sew the 1/8 seam to start with.

    As long as square footage doesn't count, there isn't much actual quilt there.

    Thank you

    I have been busy, it is nice to get a few things done and out of the way, not sure what I will do with most of them, K-M asked for a care package, I guess I am a bad mom that I haven't sent anything to her and she has been gone for 3 weeks, I thought I would package her up one.

    probably why I don't tend to do it, I don't square things up or anything either.

    Chances are that I would just change to the 1/8 inch seam allowance to start with, save all the trimming for someone that has more time.

    I am pretty sure that I am not all that patient, it is strip pieced so it went fast, and they are easy to put on point. You just need to know where to slice and dice, I am going to be doing a tut soon on it,

    Sure, I needed more fabric so that I could do the tut's, I really had no plans on doing this many quilts this year, some of them I might do in the mini, they will get what they need to know and I will save time and fabric.

    Thanks everyone, the machine does a lot of the work thankfully.

    I didn't keep track of the hours, probably playing around for 2 days other than the OBW one. It was done before hand. I was just playing around.
