Initially, I thought I was doing really well. I had even found a special acrylic tool that helped me trim those points before sewing. That tool was far better than my own plastic template traced from the pattern.
There's something not so 'even' there.
OK, this one doesn't look so bad, but maybe just a little off.
Not terrible, but where the tan and the green meet at the edge, it's a little off. That's a close up in the next photo. No, I didn't take it apart and ease in the excess, nor trim the tan.
I left it, and the green side will just be a bit skimpier on the seam....
As with this one which was a bit skimpy on the tan triangle.
And oh my, oh my, what have we here? Um, yeah, I had to splice in a skinny little section because there was no way I could do a 1/4" seam. Since it's so close to the edge, and will be practically unseen, I didn't bother with making the additional strip on the bias, which is what the triangle edge was.
I suppose if I were making this for a show, I might be more inclined to 'play by the rules' (who makes those anyway?), but this is a long-overdue quilt - I bought the fabric over ten years ago - for our bed, and that means only hubs and I will be seeing it, and trust me, neither of us are going to complain if there's a mismatched seam or even a point cut off, but I'm persnickety on those points, so they are actually looking pretty good.
Linking up at Patchwork Times and I'm off to get more housework done.
