mini sew-a-long

I am working on Temecula Quilt Company's sew-a-long We Wish You a Mini Christmas. Their blocks finish 2 1/4". 
I'm drafting mine up to finish 3" because while 2 1/4" is cute, 3" is cute enough.

Good old graph paper! I still like to work out my cutting plans like this, it seems to set the measurements in my mind better than just relying on a computer printout. Keryn thinks I should learn EQ7 or 8 or whatever it is now, but I creep back to the graph paper and pencil, good cup of coffee and a calculator in case I need to work out diagonals. I actually enjoy the process of getting it all nailed down, even though I hated Maths in school.

Your little blocks are lovely. Like you and Mereth, I find graph paper helps get to grips with blocks, although I've done templates in EQ7 to save time and wastage. I've enjoyed doing these blocks so much. Kind regards from Africa, Penny
