Number 4/17...the wool applique cutie!

Jeni from the Willow posted the last of nine blocks for this cute little wool wall hanging.  The upper left basket was the latest block I completed, just today. I am now wondering if she will design a applique border, or is this the end??  I had such fun making these blocks!! 

Just for grins and maybe to help me learn a little bit...the pink flowered block is cut a 1/4 too small. 

So...the lesson is!  Measure twice!  cut once!! LOL!!

I am always making mistakes with my cutting. I like your blocks.

I've cut wrong before. What a pain. Hope you can do a work around.

Ah yes, I've cut things too small many times, especially when distracted or tired.

Such fun blocks!
Only 1/4" too small is fixable. Just shift the block so that it is 1/8" short on each end and take your 1/4" seam from the edge of the correctly cut piece next to it, whether that is sashing or another block. You will only catch 1/8" on each side of the block in the seam allowance, but for a wall hanging, that won't be a problem. But you probably already knew all of that! : )

Awesome appliques. You did beautiful work as always. Sorry about the cut too short. I would recut that block to make it even shorter in order to add a nice little border (maybe plaid?) and use it as the center block. Or cut it out in a circle and applique that onto a coloured fabric? Anywho! Just thinking out loud here. I'm sure you will find a solution that works well and nobody will be the wiser. ;^)

Super cute woolie. I was thinking like Janet that a smaller sa might be an easy fix.
