    Well that was a disappointing layer cake for 5 inch squares. But I'm ready to go now.

    Could you share what brand it was? It seems some are more prone then others. I normally cut my own strips or squares but the few times I used precuts I noticed it was harder to get accuracy because of the inaccuracy of many of the squares/strips.

    The precuts I have used were Moda and Walmart and both have their issues. I found using a more forgiving pattern was the better solution or cutting down the precuts and trimming them to size.

    These bright colors look plenty of happy. Off we go. I have mine cut but have not sewn them together yet.

    When you cut them into 5 inch squares it should be fine, but you don't have to use layer cakes
    Wonderful, I have you down, any questions just ask away, if I don't respond I"m sure someone here will, make sure you follow the instructions on the first post. you do not have to use layer cakes, I sometimes cheat and spoil myself and use them,

    I have mine cut and sitting there waiting and waiting, will get them going tonight.

    Welcome to the group Wanda!

    The layer cake I was going to use was a daily deal from MSQC. it was way off on some. I'm bad enough without missing a quarter inch to begin with and crooked. They just kept getting worse. The brand is Free Spirit.

    I have a poor little hen that I think might have peritonitis. Yellow nasty tail. She's of course one of our ffavorite little sweethearts. Her poor mama went the same way.
