Oh I hate computers. I really really hate computers. Big computer has problem with hotmail. Big computer needs updates. Big computer is updating. Big computer needs passwords and I get so frustrated because I can't remember passwords and I'm not supposed to write the. Down then you need to reset all the time with new ones.  Just open you bleeping beepy oh I hate computers.

I'll be back with you. When the big computer decides it's updated itself and allowed me access once more. Think I'll go fry an egg. Brain food.

Ok, so I was keen to have a go, so whilst the big computer turns itself in knots upstairs I decided to have a go with the printout as it is. Here is my attempt. Trimmed to a quarter inch border.
As you say, far easier than it looks. Have a go, folks!

Very nice, Fajita. You have been very busy lately.   You are putting me to shame.   ;)  (Don't you ever sleep?).

 I'm trying not to get drawn onto this BOM as I have got more than enough on the go and I need to finish something before I start anything else.

Oh, the four together look fab-u-lous (and I'm trying so hard not to get drawn in).

As I said far, far from perfect and if I did it again or used it as the basis for a quilt I would recommend adding a thin sashing strip as my points did not match up at all, but that's probably just me and my splapdash eyes.

I think it was probably your squaring up Imi. Drawing the 1/4" from all sides and cutting like that is foolproof. The points should all match unless you weren't exactly 1/4" sa. Or your block sewing wasn't 1/4" ;)

You can actually leave the paper on until the blocks are all sewn together as well if you want to be super perfect!

The inner points are all lovely though!

Lovely job fajita! It doesn't matter if the print outs are a bit small as long as they are consistent and you're not too fussed about finished size not being 4"!

It's a lovely block and works really well with next months block when both are on point... ;)

OK....No printer. No problem. :P

It's a very simple grid of 4" squares, so I drew it out by hand just so I could have a go.



(I did use two different fabrics for the flower but you can't see any difference....I'd know better in future.)

Finally got round to mine. It is actually square, it's my placement on the board that's off.  :(

Thank you Lowena. Got to start on some FMQ practise now. I'm hopeless at that.  :(
