just a gentle reminder to please please please measure your blocks before you send them to your partner to ensure that they are 12.5inches raw edge to raw edge. A few members have received undersized blocks which they cannot use in their planned quilt, which as you can imagine is disappointing.
I find my 12.5inch ruler an investment that I cannot do without for squaring up blocks before I send them.
You can purchase this ruler online from here http://www.overstock.com/Crafts-Sewing/Get-Squared-12.5-inch-Outer-6.5-inch-Inner-Ruler/3128040/product.html
please let your partner know when their block has arrived, almost half of the emails I get every week are from partners not having heard that the block they have sent has arrived. Its common courtesy to send a quick email or pop a pic on the blog.
If I have not emailed you a link to pop on the blog please email me and I am happy to do this.
