    if you make bigger sashings you could square them up to fit

    I hate when I have to get the seam ripper out! OK, I'll confess, it stays out. Blocks are really nice, definately worth fixing.

    ME, ME, ME!!! I love the color blue and this wall hanging!

    Actually, what you could do is take off the sashing and make new bigger sashing and maybe some cornerstones and it would be fine. :thumbup:

    You certainly have a beautiful quilt to work with. Remove the bottom row and iron the rest, I find that ironing can stretch out the material a bit and perhaps you can work in the last row. really like the pattern.

    don't rip anything out! looks great. just add a strip of one of the blues down to the wider block then add a different blue border. its an original.

    Hey I would just put two long strips on the outside (triangles) with the widest part being at the bottom and narrowing down to the top to make it square and let everyone think it was intentional!

    another good reason for using cornerstones with your sashing.
    lining up is so much easier ! pretty quilt, see if you can fix that last row & offset it also.

    Are all the squares the same size, and it's just the sashing that made it uneven? If so, just take out the sashing and redo it, or put together without sashing.

    Love the blocks and colors.
