Sometimes You Just Do Whatcha Gotta Do!


Several blocks were too wonky, and to make them all consistently the same size, I chose the smallest dimensions.  They are now 12.5 x 11.5.  I changed the orientation as I trimmed just to see if I like it this way:

And here one of the blocks trimmed up.  After I sew the sashing, the height of the top & bottom wedges are going to be shorter than the other mountain peaks due to the trimming.

I’m older and wiser now . . . lessons learned:

     — Measure my piecing right away and redo if necessary

     — Don’t let my UFOs sit for 15+ years in the garage!
