Does anyone else test a block out before they make it for a quilt? I do that sometimes when I haven't done it before, just to make sure it's the right size, and so I know that I am doing it correctly.
Here is a tester block I did today.
This was SUPPOSED to be Ohio star, but I should have switched the square red and white pieces. I do like how it turned out (minus the few corners that don't match up!) but I do like how it looks. I think I might do one following the pattern and see which one I like best for the quit I am making.
