Home day

Today I have been putting the edgy bits on the truck blocks.....
..should I say sashings??? I had a lot of trouble with these getting them to the size I wanted...so have gone big and then I will trim them back...
I made a heap  of these and trimmed their little points off.....joined some together....
only to discover that they do not fit!!! My calculations obviously were wrong.....
so a bit of trimming was required, a bit more sewing.....
and I ended up with this...not perfect but not too bad......now for the next 17 blocks......
Gulp!!
Happy sewing!

I think it looks rather good and believe you are being too critical of yourself. It's going to be a much lofed and appreciated quilt. Well done girl!
