    Swan Song you did a perfect job on that - I still have problems getting my points and all to match up and be perfect like your's. I guess it would help sewing straight lines, uh? My points in the center do not come out like that and neither does the points where they connect. Maybe I am just doing them too fast? I don't think I will try the crazy quilt thing for a while. I just love your's very much. :)

    Joanie, when the points didn't meet perfectly I simply took a couple stitches point to point to pull them together. I hope that makes sense. The whole pattern is very forgiving that way. The second one has gone together a lot easier. It may be because I was not as stressed out over the centers. In hindsight I would have done something simpler to start with but I wanted it to look like a wedding keepsake incorporating the colors of her wedding. The crazy squares were the only way I could think of to do it without having it look disjointed. I really loved the end result and it was hard to give that one away. The bride was so excited when she saw it that it made all the work well worth it :)
