I do seem to be having problems with my measurements. I switched to a 1/4" seam allowance foot and having never used it before, I think it threw me off and my 1/4 inch became much larger then I'm used to doing. As you can see, the block isn't square and now I have to decide how much seam ripping I feel like doing. This is why I'm not a fan of this type of quilt - one where you have to be super exact - because I'm not a great cutter in the first place and there are SO MANY places on this quilt I can mess up the measurements.
Below are the two latest blocks. It took us our entire 3 hour class to make just two blocks. That is the story of this quilt. I changed the design of the bow tie block below based on the men's tie looking fabric. It just seemed to look better having the bow ties all meet in the center with a bulls eye effect. I really like it.
At least I am back quilting finally. I missed this more than I realized. It is good for me to have a creative outlet and a peaceful project to work on, alone. Quilting is good for the soul, I believe.
