    ARGH! i messed up my cutting on the 4 patches (too many hubby inturruptions, i think) so my 2 3/4 rectangles don’t match. Darn it.
    Starting over from square one on Monday.

    Well, I wasn’t going to do this because I have so many projects going already but I did. I have a question. How do you fan the seams on the little four patches? That is new to me. I have never made a quilt with this small of pieces. So far it is going good. Thanks for sharing. I have learned a lot from reading your blog and I really appreciate all your help.
