    Thank you, I've had fun with them. I'm glad you liked the scrappy one as I really don't care for it. I just made some really neat pinwheel pot holders using a charm package.

    Ducky I really love the first one. The fabric is from a log cabin quilt I made years ago.

    I am amazed at the precision in your sewing. How do you do that? I'm making a quilt right now with alternating nine patch blocks. I'm having a really difficult time keeping the strips the exact same width and the blocks precisely 9.5 X 9.5 after sewing the strips, cutting, and sewing into blocks. I have tried every imaginable trick but still come up anywere from 1/8 to 1/4 inch off. Suggestions?
