I laid them all out this afternoon on the living room floor for a photo op.
Then I decided to lay them out again, this time making the four sides and then filling in as much of the middle as I could.
I couldn't join the four sides laying them out the way I've been doing! Panic! I tried again, carefully laying each block next to the ones around it, and again the last corner just would not connect. There are no pictures to document this phenomenon as I immediately went into problem solving mode
If I lay the flowers out so that they connect perfectly without gaps, the top edge gradually slants downward. The quilt will not be straight!
But see the gap between the purple and yellow flowers when I make the top row straight against the edge of my ruler? Aargh!
On a completely different note, here's a sneak peek at a project I'm working on for Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day next week.
