What materials did you use? It pays to measure twice and cut once. I realized the #1 Ohio Stat was off due to cutting it at a wrong angle. Oh well, that's part of learning. #2 got better, and I was pleased w/ the Double Star. Practice. :)

Can't wait to see all blocks with that great pillow ticking stripe! I became extremely close to my seam ripper when doing the Oct blocks! You go girl, get 'em done so I can see all of them!
