What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the fact that I finished this block! This one was difficult for me - I'm not exactly sure why. I think I may be a little dyslexic, because I had a hard time getting the triangle units situated correctly. I also had read all of the comments about how many people ended up with a block that was too small, so I think I did obsessive measuring every step of the way, just to make sure everything was coming out right. Add technical sewing machine difficulties on top of that (making me stop everything so I could replace a needle, and clean my machine), and you've got a block that took me 3 hours to complete! In the end, I do like how it turned out, but I don't think that I'll be making this block again! I haven't made the 2nd February block yet, because I'm a little leary about working with the half square triangles again.
