    How did you get your points in the center to match up perfectly and lay so flat??!! Mine are horrible. I sewed from the outer edge to the center when sewing the triangles together and I wasn't sure whether to press the seam open or to one side? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!! I tried to upload a picture of my block but it wouldn't.

    I saw this tutorial this morning, referred by a post from Cyberquilters, joined the group and made 4 of the blocks. I was hoping to post a picture, but couldn't figure out how in my time frame, so here is a link if anyone would like to see my blocks: http://wraggedypatches.blogspot.com/...-pinwheel.html

    It's beautiful. But I know I will need to follow your tutorial for the first few blocks. It looks very intricate, but I think with following the instructions, I can do it. And I have a number of charm packs, including solids, so I should be able to make it w/o having to buy anything else. How do you think it will look using layer cakes?

    I was just wondering....if I wanted to make this quilt in 4 colors, (2 darks and 2 lights) to make a standard size quilt top, how much fabric should I buy in each of the 4 colors. Charm packs usually have many different colors, so I would cut my own squares but I have no idea how much fabric to purchase. Can anyone help me?

    Bear with me as I type out the math.
    A charm pack is 42 - 5inch squares so you would get 8 from each 5" strip, so your looking at about 30 inches x WOF of each colour. Personally would just get the yard of each to make sure I had extras, more if you wanted to use some of it in the borders.

    Thanks so much for the reply. One more question....does that mean that if I buy 1 yd. of each of the 4 colors...that would be equal to 4 charm packs? Not sure if that is what is needed to make a standard size quilt (4 charm packs). Thanks again for the help. I will give it a try.

    Thanks FOR THE TUT. I think you should let jenny know! You can be in the next Block book.

    What size are the charm pack pieces. Also can you use other sizes such as a six and one-half? I love the modified 4-patch you created.
