    So I printed the directions for all four months this morning.

    This one is now on my to-do list:

    b/w/b swap
    boomerang swap
    snowman swap
    commissioned baby quilt
    mystery bom

    (you'll notice that my to-do list looks nothing like one I posted earlier in the year)

    WildYard...I know....I am so excited about the exchange....I started this thread hoping it would pull a bit of fun interest between some of us and we are growing every day - I love it!

    Sharon,
    Don't worry - make adjustments as necessary - that's what I did - and I did a lot of them this time :-).......but this project is a wonderful fun project of small pieces - something new for me - and I have to say that I am thoroughy enjoying it! Now I am already looking forward to May 1st.....I leave for vacation on the 2nd - so I may just get a dab at it before I leave - providing I have the colors in my stash :-)

    I am trying this one but my first block did not come out good. I have to try again. I know that it says the first block is 2 1/2 inches but when you add the white what is the measurment for the white border, because I think that is where I mess up, the end block is 4 1/2. I am talking about the January block.

    Here is a picture of what happened two sides of my square have edges missing, I know what I did not do was trim it to 2 1/2 on the first square but would like to know the measurements for when I add the white so I can trim then and hopefully not have this problem again.

    you're welcome. If you're unsure about paper piecing go to amma's tutorial. it is very helpful.

    Besides hating lilies, this is what inspired me to do the crocus instead. They are in my garden, picture taken yesterday.

    Try to sew on the side of the pieces. That way you can sew right through the intersection, with the plain white on the bottom. It helps you see if you are chopping off any points.

    Farnsworth, I am not sure of the size of the block after adding the white triangles either. It doesn't seem to work out right. I made the center pinwheel block 2.5", then when I added the white triangles the block was 3.5", then when I added the background triangles, the block ended up 4.75", NOT 4.5". Did anyone else have trouble with the size of the blocks? HELP!!! And I want to go on record as hating these tiny pieces. Although I did use Rhonda's Boston block method of creating the half square/quarter square block for the pinwheels. That worked great. Will be glad to get to the February block and work with bigger pieces, although that may be awhile if it takes me a whole day to make one snowflake block.

    JudyG,
    We've all felt your pain! yes, those tiny pieces were a bit 'much', but hang in there....you'll get that row finished and onward to larger pieces! And yes, I've found that the January block didn't quite align like it should have, but hey, we've always got the majic of sewing...just rip out the stitching and re-do if necessary to get it just right.
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna

    JudyG, Instead of the 4.5" blocks I ended up with 4" - and just made my row with what I had - I suggest that no matter what size blocks you get - just as long as they are all the same size or can be trimmed to the same size - it should work - as long as they fit within the width of the rows....for the Lily, my blocks were so small I ended up making 9 in order to fill out the row a bit ore - 8 just wasn't enough :-)......
    January and April are the smaller pieces....February and March were more easy...so as long as we can balance them out like that it should be ok :-)
    HANG IN THERE EVERYONE!!!!
