My first block!
I am doing the blocks in order and just completed number 10. Today I trimmed them all to size and was really nervous about that! What I decided to do was to make a template out of freezer paper cut to size with the 1/4" seam allowance drawn around it. I was able to press it down to each block and was able to see that everything fit within that area. Then I used my ruler to cut. They all came out great. My plan is to go ahead and sew the first 10 together....Can't wait til I get to 20. I am posting block one. I took all the pictures before I trimmed so they are not cut to size in the pictures.
