So, way back here, I showed you some Stack ‘n Whack blocks. I finished the blocks themselves and started to put them together in an on-point layout.
Thinking I was about half way done, I pinned it to the wall to see how it looked. Uh oh. Let’s take a closer look:
Alrighty then. A little basic geometry reveals the problem (if not a solution yet). These blocks are rectangular instead of square. Thus, the angle is not 45 degrees, which is the basis of the typical on-point quilt. Well, I never could do math in my head!
So, I will be spending some quality time with my seam ripper and then take another look at layout options. I do like how the background forms those diamonds, so I think I’ll start there. Stay tuned for the next installment of Life with the Mathematically Challenged!
