I said I was going to give the Interlocking Seasons block another try and I'm glad I did. It gave me clear prespecitve that I NEVER want to make that block again. I ripped the seam on that center white block about 7 times, I finally left it because a.) it looked better than before and b.) the fabric probably would have crumbled had I ripped it again. I'm embracing the flaws of it and just looking at it from afar so that I just look at the overall design instead of the many mistakes I made. The effect is lovely and the fabrics are bright, bold and patriotic so it will look nice in the overall quilt.
