    One Block Wonder Fixed - Thx to Everyone!

    Thank you so much to everyone who posted to let me know where I went wrong. The problem was definitely the size of my triangles - much too big. I cut some 3" strips and now it definitely doesn't look like I did nothing to change the original fabric. Can't thank you all enough!

    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    What a difference! The one on the bottom right looks like a starfish. This will be an outstanding OBW.

    Thank you!
    These three look really great. Will be a nice fresh spring look to your finished quilt.

    All is not lost with the first ones you did. Just cut them down to the new size, making sure that you take it from the same side of the triangle or else you won't have your kaleidos.
