perfect points 
You know that rush you get when your points are absolutely perfect? I'm having that rush now.....I guess I am a little crazy, but the perfectionist in me can't handle not getting the points just right. I can not wait to show you what I am working on! Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Know that feeling - it's great!

Charlotte said...

haha! before I scrolled down I thought to myself "oooh, nice points!" :-D

Noela said...

I know what you mean. I drive myself mad trying to get them just right. You have done a wonderful job. Cheers....

I perfectly know what you mean because I'm the same way! :) In fact I get upset when they don't match and undo the seam to make it better :) Sounds familiar? :D

Lori said...

These are perfect. Woo Hoo!!

Awesome.Points. I am doing a strip quilt where none of the points line up. It drove me crazy at first, but i got used to it. I love when my points line up too. Having said that a little imperfection is ok too. Keeps us humble and reminds me that there was ever only one perfect Person.
Going to try a couple of you stencil thingys. I feel like that is my next thing to try. I love FMQ and the freedom it brings, but i want to be able to follow lines weel and have that as an option.
Love seeing your work!

As soon as I saw this photo, I thought, "Wow! What great points. That would feel good!" :-)

Karin said...

LOVE it when the points match so great! I had some blocks that someone else made that I'm making a quilt from - and I ended up ripping/remaking several blocks because other peoples points didn't line up, LOL. I can forgive a little, but it would have drove me nuts to left chopped-off points :)

Flo @ Butterfly Quilting said...

I love to see perfect points...of in my case that is usually in someone else's work LOL
Looking forward to seeing more of this quilt!

I thought Green Fairy Quilts was just the place where I went to buy fabric - I didn't know you had a blog until recently (don't ask where my head is at sometimes!!). But I have to tell you that your blog is just wonderful!! I love your creativity and the pictures you share. I, too, have a "thing" that my points need to line up and yours are simply perfect - fantastic job!

Yep, that's pretty exciting!

Judi wanted to send you link to my latest blog. http://grammaquilter.blogspot.ca/2012/04/sunday-afternoon-fun.html
Last week i purchased some of your stencils. I use a domestic sewing machine so wanted to let you know how i made out. They worked really well. It has opened up a whole new world for me. I love the freedom of FMQ but this gives more options. Your designs are organic which i love. They look beautiful in your quilts. Hopefully more quilters will try them no matter what their quilting style. Thanks again for sharing your journey.

Love your bock! I am working on a braided quilt, trying to change it up a bit. Not sure designing is for me!

Judy said...

Congratulations on your block being chosen. It does look like a fun block to make. Currently I am working on a Comfort Quilt for my Guild's project, Thanks for a chance to win.

Angelia B said...

currently choosing fabric for Dutch Dream quilt from Quiltmaker early summer 1992 magazine. Like your block, the orange/brown is really neat.

I am sewing a label on my grandson's quilt (which means it's finished!), working on month 3 of a mystery quilt, making place mats for a friend, and participating in a monthly FMQ challenge.

Jill said...

I think there is a real perception out there that modern=sloppy. Your work is beautiful. To answer your question I am making a block from Fat Quarterly's new book!
