Words of Warning

Just had to tackle the latest block for the Layer Cake Quilt Along with Moose on the Porch Quilts. It's not as easy as it looks! I did my usual scant 1/4" seam but that was too small...upped it to the full 1/4" on the "E" arms and now my block is 12 3/8 squared instead of 12 1/2" like all the other blocks. I used my seam ripper far too much on this block already and will probably fix this before putting it away.

It is a nice looking block. 

I am now adjourning to my quilting machine. I threw the dogs in their dog run with new bones and told them to get over the lack of a walk today. We have finally started our break-up weather which means lots of icy patches to navigate on dog walks and with a strong, 80-lb dog on the leash I sometimes feel like I'm in a Disney movie where the dog is more like a horse and I'm just holding onto the reins and hoping for a good outcome. You  know what usually happens in those movies...the person usually winds up landing in a pile of poop! I'm trying to avoid that too.
