Green Boy's Britches
I have been making these blocks as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge each month but I didn't get these finished in time for the end of April. Better late than never! Green finished at the end of April and blue started in May so I am going to try to have something ready in blue for tomorrow.
I have a big problem with these green blocks that I didn't notice until I was finished making them. They have turned out bigger than all of the previous blocks. I have changed sewing machines and I thought I had set it up correctly for a 1/4 inch seam allowance but apparently not...boohoo. I will leave them for now and decide later whether I can just trim them down or if I will have to remake them. I am so hoping that I can just trim them but I don't want to ruin the overall effect of the blocks joined together.
