I've spent this evening putting these lovely big friendly squares together. I love this cleverly designed pattern, there is no fiddly messing about!
I would have done more, however, despite having washed, ironed and starched the incredible shrinking cream fabric before I started - it continues to shrink when pressed.
It means that I'm re-piecing the green-cream-green strips as I go with a skinnier seam in order that the cream centre block measures the full 4".
It's paying off, though, as I'm not having to force the strips into matching up, and the size of the big blocks are spot-on, which I'm sure will help when it comes to the next stage.
And I'm being extremely cautious with the iron!
