The mitered squares are coming along slowly but surely! I’m really happy with my color selection for this pattern – when I get tired of a certain color combination, I can easily switch to something else and feel like I’ve begun a whole new project! What’s more, with the shorter rows of each color, I can carry up the ends rather than having to cut and weave them in, saving me hours of work later on!
Here are a few of the squares sewn together. I started seaming them together because: 1. I hate seaming and wanted a head start so I wouldn’t have so much to do later and 2. I wanted to make sure that the squares were square enough to properly fit together. I’m hoping that some blocking will reduce the bunching up that’s occurring in the center of the sewed-together blocks. Will that work, or do you have any tricks for eliminating that mountainy look and getting seamed squares to lay flat?
