Not So Happy Quilt Top
This is the last block for my BOM quilt. And here are the blocks together with sashing and cornerstones:
The blocks were supposed to be 12 1/2" unfinished. The two with curved seams I had to trim down, so they were 12 1/4", but I didn't think it would be a problem. Somehow, when I checked before sewing I missed that there were one or two larger than 12 1/2". I tried to compensate for minor differances when joining to the sashing, but it didn't work.
I'm thinking it needs to be ripped out, but I really, really don't want to do that much ripping. But if it needs to be done...
Alternatively, maybe I could try to stitch the scant seams deeper, drown any in question with Fray-Check, trim the outer sashing strips even with the bottom row, add the remaining borders, and hope the sweet lady I'm giving this to forgets to wear her glasses every time she looks at it?
