Elizabeth's tips and lessons learned/advice she did not follow:
- Wonky isn’t severe. Don’t make those cuts too severe or they will grow out of your control.
- Measure as you go so you will end up with a block you can cut into a square and not end up with a rectangle.
- Don’t make the inner rounds too wide or you will reach the 9.5 inch block size limit before you get as many rounds of fabric on it as you want.
- When horizontal doesn’t work, try vertical.
On another note, with this second row, Elizabeth was able to try out a new tool that a friend bought at a recent quilt show - the cutting templates that Martelli makes. These 2 photos show using the frame of the template to choose placement of the 9.5" square, and then using the square insert to make the actual cuts.
