    This is one that was posted here this week. I think she had seen one similar & drafted it in EQ7. I attempted to duplicate it, not entirely successful. I started with a 4 1/2" center square but as you can see I had trouble with the points ending up where they were supposed to. Do you think if I drafted a pp pattern it would be better?

    You know, if you hadn't said anything, I don't know that I've have noticed the wonky points. I got caught up in the pretties!

    Those are all very pretty and I don't think your points are bad on that last one! Not noticeable unless you know. Great job on all!

    I love them all, and usually don't choose brown, but that brown one is so so beautiful.

    all are very nicely done... i especially like your color choices in the second one. don't bother telling anyone about the points... they look like they were designed that way

    I usually scroll throught the pics first, then read the text. I had to go back and look for wonky points, totally missed them!

    These are all really sharp! What nice gifts they are - and you're finished so far in advance I'm still working on my Halloween runner . And thanks so much for including the links. I, too, didn't notice the every-so-slightly wonky points unil you 'made me look' LOL

    I love the first one - Twister, but the site you provided does not give you a link to the pattern.

    Grammy of 6 - If you click on the link then click Patterns, scroll down the page, you will see the Twister pattern.
