measure twice, cut once. or not.
I made the bottom block (with the seahorses) first, and near the end of the process, I trimmed a bit to square it up and ended up making the block 1/8" too short! So I trimmed some more and added another strip. Now you would think that wouldn't happen again, right? Well, it didn't, not exactly. What I did though was cut the very last strip 1/4" too narrow. Sigh. I didn't want to chop and add this time, so I unpicked it and remade the strip in a wide enough width.
I can't wait to see all the blocks together, it's going to be so gorgeous!
