Got it right the 2nd time!

These first six don't count...This block proved to be a bit challenging for me. I spent an evening cutting, sewing and ironing the first six at my moms house over Mother's Day weekend. Her sewing machine foot is wider than mine but I did not realize that until half way done. I was following the wrong guide to get a 1/4" seem!! Therefore my first six (shown above) are all 9" or 9-1/4" square. Well, I did want to conquer this block and make correct ones, they were really fun to put together. Once home I attempted four more on my machine and now they are all 9-1/2" square!! Yay!!
Sophie--please donate my four chances AND can I still send the first six as extras?? I will make sure to label them so that the recipients know they are not the right size.

  1. Whatever the size, your combination of fabrics is very nice in all the blocks.

    The blocks that measure 9 1/4 inches square are within the guidelines, so let's count those--you'll have to let me know what the revised number should be.

    As for the blocks that are less than 9 1/4 inches, I won't count them (as extras), but you could include them with the blocks you send to the winner(s). Be sure to include a note so they'll understand why they are getting more blocks from you and also give them a heads up to "measure twice, sew once."
