I'm not sure what happened but I wonder if when you put those last few triangles on the end you used the full size triangles rather than the smaller ones? We do have 2 sizes of triangles to contend with.

Most of my problems are my strips end up a bit on the small side and I have to block each section as I go.

The 4-patch strips are becoming more of a challenge for me too. Mine came up short. I guess that is easier to deal with as I just wet them down and creatively pressed. I'm beginning to feel like the person Ricky referred to in the last show "I don't like mine". My choice for the setting triangles is making my quilt very green and that wasn't what I had in mind when I started. Oh well. Gloria

I have finished sewing my 4-patch on point thanks to Margo's pics. Didn't have a clue as to how to make them. Again thanks Margo!

However, here is my problem. My top and bottom strips worked out perfectly, but the two longer ones are an inch too long. Should I try and sew and take up the slack as I go? I must have stretch them when pressing them out.

This BOM is truly a challenge for this Newbie, but I'm sure with all the knowledgeable quilters, I'll get through it with success.

Yours in quilting,
