The image below is a block from a quilt that I will be making. The motif blocks will be fussy cut. The floral shown in the motif was scanned into EQ6 and isn't the actual size. The other image is the manufacturer's swatch and is a far better representation of the size of the flower.
I would like to keep the motif to a maximum 7" finished size. If I cut the block on the grain, I can get the almost all of the flower in but the edges of the blossoms will be just at or a tiny bit into the seam line. If I cut the block on the bias, I can get the whole flower in and have a small frame of the yellow background around the flower. My feeling is that this would have a better appearance and give some separation from the blue in the flying geese.
Is there any reason why I shouldn't cut the block on the bias? Will it create a construction problem?
Thanks in advance for your help.
