Happy to be Scrappy

Happy to be Scrappy

Here are my five inch blocks with what was to be their sashing.  Yes, WAS is the word I used.  After getting off of here I am going to tear this all out and hope that the blocks survive the process.  I absolutely love the look of it.  It couldn't be scrappier.  But it couldn't be more of a disaster.

When seen up close it is apparent that I needed to spend more time making sure that I was getting an accurate seam allowance.  Can you see the puckers?  I can.  And hopefully, I will learn a very valuable and time consuming lesson to take more time and pay attention.

 I thought I could stretch, tug or pull this into submission.  Nope it's not going to work.  This can't be pressed out.  Trust me, I tried.  So this evening when I should be working on the border I will be ripping ALL of this out.

Does anyone need a few hundred 1/2 square blocks that are ALMOST 1" each?

No, I can't see puckers, but I've had plenty myself. I can't imagine how tiny these units must be. Going to be lovely!!
