Don't look Ethel!!!
I have made a fun simple block out to be the most complicated ever!!!
I will just chalk it up to a bad sew day.
Actually, I will be totally honest....... I missed a few of the directions in my haste to get this block completed.
So.... 1. make sure you trim down your 7" middle square to 6 1/2" (yes, that will make a big difference and will eliminate a great source of frustration).
2. trim all of your half squares to 2" as mentioned in the post before this one.
I cut off some of the flying geese points....I think I stretched and pulled this poor block in every way possible...so I am now going to make another one.
Truly, this block is totally beautiful, I love love love it. In fact, I think it is one of my favorites but.....I just made a mess of it.
Jacquelyne has done a fabulous job on these squares, they are easy and so fun but read the directions and try not to miss some of the key points (hanging head in shame).....
