    Woo hoo - you did it! And just yesterday you were ready to toss in the towel.

    That corner is an easy fix so no big deal. Look what determination & the helpers around here can do for you. Proud of you!

    Can I just fix it by unpicking the strip and adding another piece?

    You could try it. Is this the Union Jack you were asking about?

    It's beautiful. Don't feel too bad about cutting your fabric a little short --- we have ALL done that in paper piecing.
