I'm totally wind up and excited this morning... I finished piecing the blocks for the centre of Saltwater Taffy fom the book Uncommonly Corduroy. What a colour explosion, right?
It went together smoothless and I didn't have to unpick anything, which is good considered I misplaced my seam ripper and my LQS is closed this week. A little trick I used to make sure I added the right corner triangles was to place a needle in the top wedge. This way you can twist and turn and still be sure what's up and down, left and right. I don't know if it's so obvious that everybody is already doing it? I think it overall saved me a lot of time .
I enlarged the template a little so the blocks ended up 10 3/4"
