Blocks Received (and thank you so much!)
Posted but not yet received
(the blocks are beautiful and I cannot wait to get them)
Notified Kelli that blocks will be late
The rest of Hive 3, please contact Kelli to notify her the status of the blocks.
I know that several of you have had problems with this block. I am deeply sorry, as it was not my intention to cause so much heartache with a difficult block. Seam allowance seems to be the biggest predictor whether a block will be the correct size. Verify that you are using a scant 1/4" seam allowance. My bernina has a 1/4" foot, and it will give a seam allowance that is greater than a 1/4". I finally learned to guide the fabric in from the edge of the foot in order to get that perfect scant 1/4" seam. See this post for some other hints for the 1/4" seam. There are also many other blogs that have great hints and tricks to the perfect 1/4" seam.
