    I'd never own up to those problems except to friends here that I knew would understand. I think we've all had some block size issues along the way. This is not an original solution. I don't remember where I originally saw this idea but it's an excellent solution. Relieves a lot of stress, let me tell you.
    Nanabirdmo, There was a time I would have tossed the whole lot over to you. :D Too kind of you to offer to send along a finished picture! Meanwhile, though, I've a daughter who's already laid claim to this thing. Sorry!
    Thank you all again :D

    What a great idea for making bolcks fit together.
    Note to self: ALWAYS have plenty of extra background fabric - and keep it with the UFO it belongs to, so I don't use it up on another . . . errrrr potential UFO.

    Good Note! I wish someone had told me! I ran out and had to change fabric for the last border. There are approximately 6 different white fabrics in this quilt. Oops! Plan ahead....

    What a beautiful quilt and what a great solution. I quite often have to put things away for a while (sometimes a LONG while) and come back to them and they tell me what to do to fix them :). I'll definitely keep this tip in mind :) Thanks.

    I agree with everyone. It's a beautiful quilt, love the idea of the coping strips, it's cheerful and if you didn't mention your "issues" no one would ever know. It looks planned. Great job.
