    Love those colors. Make sure you iron it really flat before squaring it up.

    Very pretty block :D:D:D

    When you square it up, you want to make sure that you have a 1/4" seam around your points, or you will lose them. Move your ruler around the block, checking to see if you cut here, is it too much to cut off on the other side(s) and then do your trimming.

    You may want to double check your seam allowances now and correct them so that you don't have as much trimming :wink:

    Pinning also helps to keep everything in place as you sew your rows together and may help lessen the amount of trimming needed, too :D:D:D

    The colors and design are very pretty. Do you think it's possible that your seams for the diagonal squares are a teeny bit bigger than 1/4"? I think that might be what's keeping them from squaring up more exactly.

    Very pretty. Of course, now, I am not just saying that because my favorite color is blue. I can picture this repeated across a whole bed. Can't wait to see the whole thing.
