Yesterday I was so proud of myself. I had 3 new pieces of made fabric and I was going to work on the BOM. Well, I didn't have enough fabric so I had to cut the pieces rather than start with a 14" square as directed. (Yes, I am pattern challenged!) The instructions were great; my following of them wasn't. I cut the strips 1/2" too short. The whole piece does fit together, but if you look closely, the seams don't match : ( Oh well, mistakes are part of learning, right?! I still like the finished product. I'm sitting down to make some more fabric this morning to give it a go again!
