    Cordelia,
    They look great! Don't feel bad...I struggled w/ Grandmother's Cross too. I took mine apart and remeasured everything--reassembled it, and it came out right-- :shock: quilting gods at work?? :lol:

    I took it apart three or four times.

    The first time, I didn't assemble it right and got two blues stuck together.

    So, I ripped it out.

    Then I'm not consistent with my "scant" quarter inch seam. The second attempt measured 13 inches. Then I decided I'd just make a pillow out of it and start over.

    Mom took it apart and I sewed it up again. I did better the third time. Got it to 12 3/4 inches. I ripped it out again and the fourth time was the charm, though I'm not happy with one of the corner pieces. It measures 12.5".

    I may rip it apart again and try a new corner piece.

    I've been looking over a lot of the other blocks I need to do yet and all but one of them require half square triangles.

    I'm getting to where I'm like, if I can't paper piece or Thangle it, I don't want to do it.

    :wink:

    I'm sorry my block was such a hassle. I thought it would be easier since there were not many triangles but I quess I was wrong.

    Thanks for redoing it so many times, I love it!!!!!

    CollettaKay and Mareliba:

    Thanks for my card trick blocks. They look great! I missed when you posted, because I haven't been reading the board much. I hope to get back to making more blocks soon.

    mgrhs, your blocks look great!
    I have the fabric washed & most of it ironed for 10 blocks! It was really fun sorting through my stash for all the blocks!
