Way Over My Head!!!


I may attempt this block later on this weekend or I may skip this week's block altogether, which is not necessarily a bad thing...I might understand what I am doing if I had one of you here WITH me, but I am just getting frustrated...I haven't even pieced two rows and I lost all my points...


Where did they go? Into HST never, never land.


It may be with me, but I would really like to say that I do not like her instructions very much and I am not advanced enough to be able to figure it out on my own.


Aaarrrggghhhh!



Loving all of your blocks though...one day this puppy will be able to run with the big dogs.

don't give up yet! the points are hiding 1/4 inch in so they "appear" when you sew the seam :-) Honest.

Donna's right, Marlene -- your points are just fine!

I don't see any lost points. Pixie is right.. they look blunt because that is the 1/4" seam you will sew. You're doing great so far.. keep going! You'll be happy you did. (See? We ARE with you.)

Don't give up! The others are right. You're points will come back when you sew your pieces together. In fact, I would say that bottom piece is perfect! Stay with the pack! We'll just run a little slower.

What method are you using to make your half square triangles?

As Hetty says don't give up. This one is a bit challenging, but if you take is slowly you will come up with the block. You are on the right track.
