One trick to remember ladies is tack tack tack. If you stitch a stitch where the points meet they won't move. I hold the two points together and then fold back the tip of the corner so you can see if the points are meeting. If you tack them in place then you should save some frustration with the points.

You can also tack where the bottom of the center fabric meets the other SP block.

Also mine aren't always perfect so some imperfection is expected!! We aren't perfect!!

Thanks Ladies - PokerDiva, I am really loving those polka dots - nice block! Your points look perfect to me. Jealous!

Rhonda, I know you're right. I saw your advice on tacking before and I just didn't do it. Too rebellious! Tacking is one of those things that I think will take too long - and then I spend an hour trying to get those silly points straight! After a day or two away from the block, I may pick it up and take one more go at the center points - tacking them this time!

Katie - good luck on the 6 1/2 block! You're my hero for undertaking that - not that it's hard - it's not - just a lot of fiddly little pieces to match up.

Here's my Autumn, week # 2. ......this was a lot of fun and turned out better than I expected. Sure are little squares. I think my little sampler is going to be really cute, if I do say so myself. This is a 6 1/2".... boy the closeup shows all the mistakes. lol

Looks good to me Katie! Star points and the smaller size might take a bit of practice to get it where you want it to be. But mine are quite often off so it is the nature of the beast sometimes!!

Are those fabrics cotton? They almost look like flannel to me.

No the fabrics are 100% cotton. It's just that I zoomed in so close so you can see the weave of the fabric.

These are blocks for wk1 and wk2

Very nice Katie. Very brave doing such a little block. I just seeing how different everyone's look doing the same block.

Since I've started on this board, I have tried just about everything, and I now don't know how to do any blocks except Rhonda's way. lol And I would have never tried the smaller stuff if Rhonda hadn't made it so easy. Yes I am a big big fan of Rhondas!!!!!!
