Goodness, this was a difficult block in the Quilt Along. The instructions were well written. It seemed simple enough, but something went wrong along the way. The block was supposed to measure 12 1/2 inches, but mine ended up being only 12 inches. It took some very creative seam allowances to make the seams match. I drew lines; I sewed on the edge of fabric. It doesn't look all that bad, but the middle square is all puckery. Yes, I am adding that word to the quilting dictionary. It is an adjective.
