    I am so glad we had the extension, life really got in my way these last couple of months. I have four more blocks to make and plan to work on them in the next few weeks. It has been a real learning experience doing this challenge block exchange.

    Nellie, on several of the blocks you can cut just a little larger than it calls for and then trim it down to size and also you probably need to be really mindful of that darn...."SCANT" 1/4" . That always give me a problem. Good luck!

    Oh and really good luck on the quitting smoking..In May 09...DH and I will have been "nonsmokers" for 2 yrs. We used the patches and we sure are enjoying the non stinky cars/house/clothes..not to mention the "extra" $$$ saved! (of course...I spend mine on fabric! :lol: ) If we can do it...you can too...you go girl!

    Ladies just wondering how many of you had trouble with your blocks. Are they all measuring 12 1/2 unfinished. We had 2 that were different sizes. Give us your tips for those who are still struggling to make them. A few have come out a bit short.

    Let us know what you did to get them 12 1/2!!!!!
    Thanks :D :D

    Who is mailing there early :?:

    I always try to figure out which sides will be my outside seams and I do not trim them until the block is finished. I also try to cut these anywhere from 1/2" to 1 inch larger. Sometimes it takes some figuring to do, but most of the time, it works out great!

    Thanks annemarie - haven't kept up with that thread. I have that pattern - printed it off just before claudia took it off the site. Am doing her new one now, but messed up the HST's for this month and need to do them over.
    I just bought some batiks - never really worked with them - afraid to cut into them.

    Your quilt is just beautiful!

    mgrhs, I will accept my block even if it is not quite 12.5"! Do not worry about it. Nothing is perfect and knowing that you did your best is fine with me!

    So, Bebe just send me all my blocks, perfect or not. Thanks.

    Mine will be in the mail soon.

    You know mgrhs....I'm in these for the fun, learning experience, and for the friendship.. I don't worry about the exact measurement (I can deal with it when I decide what to do with them). Whatever you've done is perfect with me :wink:

    Here is a pic of all the blocks. After I hung them up and took a pic, I felt so proud that I made all these different types of blocks. It was really a challenge, but I enjoyed it, and I am looking forward to receiving my blocks.
