Here are February's blocks 3 & 4 for Craftsy's BOM.  These were fun to do!  We were warned to use a scant quarter inch seam on the blocks.  Many posted that their blocks came up smaller than the 12.5 inches required for the final block.   So I was very careful in sewing.  My blocks ended up a bit larger than the 12.5 inches, so when I trimmed them down, I lost some of my 1/4" seam allowance at the edges.  So when the quilt is put together, I will lose my pretty points at the edges.  With practice, surely, I'll find a happy medium for these blocks!  Loving doing these and putting together blocks I've never done before.  Thanks Amy for the lessons and thanks Craftsy for giving us the website.
