Just hate mistakes like that but thank goodness you have extra fabric. Take a little walk or break and it will go together the way it should. Good luck.

Carol Doak has a yahoo group-go join it before you touch another paper piece (of fabric). Took a one day seminar with her last year and she explained how to measure that new piece of fabric so it won't be too small. It was a miracle! She also gives free new block patterns to group members regularly! (just love free quilt blocks-lol)
Just post your question to her group and you should get tons of helpful info.
Good luck,

Good luck!

I know how you feel. On my 1st PP I even had to take one seam apart 3 times. Really felt dumb and it didn't help the paper very much either. It'll click and then you'll be on your way.
