Nice!  So glad this one didn't put a hex on your place while it was being made.  Grin

Can you share the source of the patterns?  Are they online?

Sorry, but I'm not much help, either.  I've only made one and it was a mess.  I pinned as much as usual, but the quilting really distorted the whole thing.  I also had problems with pulling at the seams (only used 1/4", though), so I had to quilt a large zig zag over the seams.  Luckily it was only a disappearing nine patch, so it didn't ruin the design.  It seems like a lot of quilters are just fine with flannel, so I'm thinking it's just me.  I've just not been tempted to try it again.  Undecided

So glad (and a bit jelly) that you had such a great time!

I had this problem, too.  Using a spider helped, especially for triangles with those little points.  After stumbling upon Bonnie Hunter's site, I still continued with the spider theory but started using quilt pieces instead.  Now instead of wasting the time and thread I am working on two quilts at once.  The one I'm working on with leaders and enders isn't the one I'm primarily working on, but if you are sewing anyway you might as well make it count, right?  It can be the beginning of the next quilt that you'll "upgrade" to the main quilt or just stay a leader/ender project until it's finished.

And yes, 1/4" seam is correct.  It seems so tiny after sewing garments and home dec, doesn't it?  A bigger seam will only add bulk for the quilting process later, and the quilting will make it more secure.  You'll be anchoring the pieces to the back, so there won't be as much stress on each seam like there is with other sewing.

Beautifully done!  Sometimes it's better that you don't know what you don't know, or you wouldn't have the courage to begin.  Wink

I hopped over to look at the reviews, and this was posted on March 3rd.  In case it wasn't you, here is what it said " I tried 'Grandma's Spot Remover', I applied the soap and brushed it in with a toothbrush. Left it 10 minutes and washed under cold water with the tooth brush again and it all went away!!!!"

Good luck!  The only other thing I can think of to try is Biz.
