    I was having sooooo much fun doing D9P and putting on sashing, that I sailed along all weekend and then on Sunday when I went to put them all together, ........ Hadn't followed the simple Rule.....Measure twice, cut once!!
    I have blocks of ALL sizes!!!!

    So tonight I am off to my Studio, to do "re-sewing"!!!

    When oh When will I ever LEARN???

    At 53 you think I would be Perfect!!! :lol: :lol:

    Oh no, have fun cutting more blocks, looks like you will be making 2 quilt tops instead of 1

    I have made a D9P top and was so much fun!

    Instead of re-sewing, why not square each of the blocks off to the same size, but take the extra off of one or two sides instead of evenly around the block...this would make your center square slightly off center and add movement to the quilt. You could even to the squaring up on an angle to get the lines angled instead of perpendicular to the sides....just alternatives.
