Blue and White Quilt Progress
I finished piecing the top together last night. I had a perfectionistic moment when I began sewing the horizontal strips together and realized that the squares were not aligned at every corner. Not even close on a few. It was then that I remembered that I should have trimmed each square before sewing them into strips. I considered that I might need to take apart the strips and do that.
So I took a break and waited for the perfectionistic moment to pass. It did. There were a few corners that required a bit of fiddling, and a couple that I went back and re-seamed to make them a bit smaller. Then everything came close enough to meeting at the corners, and that was okay by me.
Next I need to buy fabric to make the backing and bias trim.
