This weeks blocks are #78 Old Maid, #94 Susannah, and #49 Katherine
Here is the first block I attempted, Old Maid:
This is my first attempt. After completing when I measured, it was 6 3/4" square rather than 6 1/2". So what does one do but trim. When trimming was completed the sides only had about 1/8" seem allowance without cutting into the points. This was not acceptable so I started another.
Reviewing the color I decided to change the green and leave the solid I used in the first attempt for a multicolor block, more versatile. This time I trimmed as I went so it only ended up 1/8" too big on each side. I know why, when cutting the quarter square triangles, the suggested size they large so allows for trimming. Even though I trimmed the center of the block the edges were long. I trimmed a bit and called it acceptable.
Here are all of the blocks so far. The bottom block's green is questionable. As the quilt progresses, if it still sticks out like a sore thumb I will redo with other fabrics
