Thank you! I feel much better! That's the block I made and it also came out 8-1/4 by 8-1/4. Either I'm not crazy after all -- or you and I are both crazy, Dee. Well -- that's entirely possible :)joan
Not only possible, but probable. Do you want me to do another block so I don't repeat yours?I'm more than willing to do so. No problems. No worries.
It's pretty. I like the hexies too.
OH, no! I didn't mean that you should choose another block, Dee. I'm sure that will be fine, and the fabric placement will probably b different anyway.We may both be crazy, but apparently great minds think alike.
I know you didn't :0) and you are so sweet! Are you keeping yours the 1/4 inch off? I'm waiting to hear back from Jennifer before I make my final one!I was thinking LOL that GMTA! Isn't it nice to know in a world full of sanity, we're insane together?LOL
Thank you Claudia! They're fun to do.
My test block turned out 8.25 too! I'll wait to make the real one until Jen answers this.
dee, this block is awesome! great choice~
JUST LEAVE IT! haha. it's more trouble than it's worth. UGH, i wasted my month on the hardest block ever. next year i'm picking a nine patch.
Oh, Jennifer, I don't think it was wasted! Look how many of us got to try something new, stretch our wings or try curved piecing again! I'm sorry if it seems hard, I'm just so anxious that this quilt top be what you're hoping it to be and I don't want to disappoint!Truly, it hasn't been a trouble, but making blocks for another person, for me, can be unsettling 'cause I'm afraid they won't like what I make!Thanks for answering me back and I will make your block and get it sent on its way. I think the quilt is going to be lovely!
i can't even make this dang block. :(
I'm curious... does anyone know why some NYB patterns make the "background" part in 2 pieces, while others make it a single piece? Do you suppose it's for ease of construction, to save fabric, or is it something else?Thanks for your thoughts.
Jennifer, this is a hard block to learn and do. I love doing them, but am finding the smaller arc difficult to pin and sew. But, we don't grow unless we're stretched and challenged! I'm putting the corner background fabric on today, and Suzanna, I have no idea why they split it up. Ease of construction is as good a reason as any!Hang in there ladies!
