What are you most proud of? I figured out how to get the blocks to be 7 1/2" square.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be really, really careful when trying to figure out how to trim the block to the final size. It's frustrating to make a new block because I cut one side at 3 1/2" instread of 3 3/4".

That's what I thought! How fortunate that I found the website with the curved ruler just in time for this month's block.

I'm going to check out those rulers, I like these blocks better too !

The ruler is a lot of fun! I'm also getting ideas for using the circle templates I recently bought - sharper curves, maybe

ROFL me thinks "our" ruler got you hooked in record time! Love these Darns! No doubt you've already got your next curvy block planned if not already in the making LOL? Love what Jenny's come up with for her block "sashing" in her QAL... very cool!

You & mtclifford are a very, very bad influence! I bought the Abacus pattern but haven't decided what solid color to use - knew I'd been saving those black & white prints for something. And I saw the curvy sashing this morning - love it! I also haven't decided on what to use for the QAL Decisions, decisions - -
