    Yeah, everyone is right. I am too hard on myself. That's a recurring theme - trying to make anything I do be perfect. Anyway, personal shortcomings aside, I "fixed" the square. It didn't take 20 minutes. I just ripped out that square and a couple of inches each way and replaced the square with one that was almost straight.

    I re-checked the other 10 little blocks and, including the saddle, 5 were off enough to notice. Tartan was right, they are printed wrong. Or, I distorted them when I pressed them. Also, I went back on added additional little seams to make sure none of white showed around the photo, so that may have added to the problem. I'm going to re-do them the best I can by blocking them as square as I can and re-sashing them. Then, I'm also taking a couple of days off from it. I get to volunteer today and tomorrow, teaching the kids to quilt.

    Thanks again for your help.

    I agree, that once quilted, that won't be so obvious. I wouldn't touch it. Leave as is. Nice quilt, btw.

    Sorry you have been frustrated but it seems like you are tackling it. When using panels we wish we could trust the grain but it's often off grain a bit and distorts the edges we hoped were straight. Your piecing is really nice.
