    Post the pictures on this thread.
    Don't start a new one.


    fyi - the Picture section is to show off a finished project, or one in progress, although there is a lot of overlap.
    You can most certainly post the pictures related to this thread here in the Main Section.

    And I'm glad you were finally able to print off the pdf of the directions

    Yeah.

    Nice fabrics.

    Were the strips from a purchased Jelly Roll or did you cut them yourselves?

    At this point it doesn't matter how things went wonky because you can't undo it.
    Possible that the strips weren't cut correctly, or the seam allowance used to sew them together was too wide or thin - could be from many causes.

    What happens if you join like squares in a row?
    iow, they all have the solid brown, but what if you took the brown/yellow blocks and sewed them in a row or into a big square?
    Would the strips them line up?
    You create a different pattern.

    I'm thinking/hoping that perhaps since they were cut from the same strip set, they'll align more easily.

    Let me draw something up for you.

    I bought the jelly rolls at big lots. So it was precut for me. I sewed them together like it showed. The solid brown I bought and cut my self. I think I messed up when I did the 45 degree cut I didn't have any real directions I even went out and bought the same kind of ruler as I saw in. The video.

    I'm fairly new so bare with me! Are you matching up your seams? Are they pressed in opposite directions? Those are just two things I know have thrown my blocks off a lot! I love your fabric choice! I didn't know big lots sold fabric! Hugs I know how frustrating it is to put so much work into cutting the fabric and sewing it and then it not work! The video you are watching is from Missouri quilt company they have a forum someone there might be able to help you to on their website.

    I did press all my seams the. Ironed it all flat. Haven't master the direction of the seams. I am a lot better than I have been. I am new at this. This is the first time I am trying to follow instructions.

    Here are two versions/suggestions - just trying to use the blocks and still end up with something visually pleasing.

    #1- How it could look if you sewed like blocks together - you could sash each section, or make horizontal or vertical wave patterns.
    That's IF the blocks can go together relatively easy

    #2 - this is with a thin sashing between the blocks - reminds me a bit of a tudor ceiling pattern.
