Alert -- there was a mistake on last week's post. The snowball blocks need 2 7/8" squares in the corners. I hope I didn't screw anyone up too bad. (Thanks Katie for the heads up)
I don't know why I was thinking 3 7/8" ??? As I was cutting them, I was thinking, "These look wrong."
I figured it out, but didn't realize I had also typed the wrong number in. *sorry*
Good news is -- I actually made my snowball blocks! I haven't trimmed all of them yet, because I wanted to use the remaining minutes of S' nap-time sewing on to my top.
I made progress! Look! (About 1/5 done)
I LOVE this quilt too much. So much work, but so beautiful.
For this week -- finish your X blocks. The snowballs go together quickly, so we need to get back to those chains. :)
And I want to make a word about sewing your rows together (it's hard not to).
If you hold your fingernail on one side of the star point intersection, about 1/4" of the way in, it helps to see where to line it up. When I sew my rows together, I worry about intersections, and not so much edges. I'm really happy with how it is turning out!
I'll be back with more Go! cutter die reviews either today or tomorrow, and then giveaway after that! (Sunday I believe)
