Working with templates has been a learning experience! Cutting out the pattern, tracing it on the template plastic, then cutting that shape out of the plastic, tracing it on the fabric several times, plus then cutting the fabric - that's a lot of steps! I noticed my Louisa came out quite a bit larger than 9.5 inches. Fortunately, she trimmed down easily!
Here's the group!
I'm loving the red prints and Kona Snow together.

better to be a little too big then too small! love your reds.
I agree with Karen, too big is better! Pretty blocks, a lot of work! 👍
Very pretty blocks. I had a problem somehow when I did a conversion my math was about 1/4 inch off, but I managed to "ease" my block together and overall it ended up being the right size. Yay me. LOL tiny wins.
These are so pretty in red and white! I have never made a red and white quilt......
Beautiful blocks, Diann. The red and white (Snow) are so fresh and crisp together. I’m enjoying watching everyone make these lovely blocks. I’m not crazy about the setting of the final quilt, but I know there are those who will change it up, and I’m looking forward to that. Stay safe! xo
I've tried template stitching and it never worked well for me. Your blocks turned out beautifully, so you must have mastered that skill set.
I've never done a template block before. Looks complicated but your blocks are spectacular! That is going to be a gorgeous quilt.
