All of them are the same!!!

I think I know the point of this so I used Kathleen’s cutting rule #1, and was extra careful — I flunked cutting in kindergarten. I did take care to follow my traced lines exactly (allowing for rule #1. Sorry if this is cryptic, but I don’t want to give anything away.)

Even so, #8 is about 1/8″ longer and 1/16″ wider than #1, and developed a couple of subtle curves.

I’ve been reading for about 18 months. This test didn’t work out like I expected.

And it turnned out just about the way I expected. Fairly accurate but not as it could be if I had used only one template. My father probably could have done this with complete precision. I, unfortunately didn’t get that gene. I hang out with a bunch of ladies who quilt and they would have looked at this exercise as totally rediculous. Good quilters do some amazing precision work.
I taught every grade from kindergarten through comunity college and many sewing classes. I am never amazed at what students don’t know, but get really blown away when a student knows something. Or even better when they know more than I do.
Sorry, uploading photos is not one of my favorite activities.

Mine are 2″ x 8″.
