With a dig through my scrap bin, I pulled out 32 happily colored prints that I could pair with my white squares. Still, my scrap pile does not look any smaller.
This project included two of my three weakest points.
I had recently seen a trick for corner triangles posted on Cluck Cluck Sew that I thought might be a new (better for me?) way of tackling these pesky corner triangles. I will say I thoroughly enjoyed stitching on the corner triangles using their method, but sadly it did not always result in a nicely square piece.
In the end, I have two blocks for you, Erin. I am happy with the fabrics used and think they fit in your summery vision. I am reasonably happy with how my points came together even without locking seams. Two stars. However, they are absolutely smaller than the 12.5 inches square that they should be even with my scant seams. Any scanter (is that a word?) and I am not sure they would have held together! I hope they are still OK, Erin. If not, they will surely spruce up the back of the quilt.
