Precision is not my strong point

I pieced the simple A6 block from Dear Jane, but it ended up wonky - not square.  Carefully sewing pieces that are barely an inch square is not my strong point.  But I'm doing this because (a) I need practice in lots of different techniques, and (b) I'm fascinated by the way the original quilt looks.  I think tonight I will cut out 2-3 more sets. Hopefully I can get one of them right!

    Not to worry, many blocks will feel quite wonky, especially in the beginning. DJ is a wonderful project to develop expertise in several areas of traditional patchwork through LOTS of practice.
    Best Wishes & Happy Quilting,
