    Help assembling cathedral window blocks

    I have 12 blocks of cathedral windows that I have made. And when I sewed them all together, and then went to sew the "squares" down in the middle, I realized that some of them were not the "exact" size. BIG SIGH LOL

    This means that they are bunching up ... and it looks awful.

    Does anyone have any creative ideas on how I can sew them together / fix it. I'll even sew them to the back if that works, as I don't plan on putting any more fabric to make more "windows" when I join them. I want the black to be a border around each block.

    Here's a pic of them all joined together ... but I have now taken them all apart again.

    If there is not too much of a miss-match in size, maybe use black sashing. Your blocks look great together.

    I would put a black sashing between the blocks.

    They are really pretty blocks, sorry no advice though.
