I thought I'd got it

The latest block from Barbara Brackman's 'Grandmother's Choice' blog is Amethyst, a deceptively simple block which actually has Y seams.  I foolishly said to Liz that while I'd struggled with Y seams (usually ending up with a pleat or a hole!) I had perfected the technique and was feeling confident.  Famous last words!

Here is my Amethyst, and not only is it pretty poor on its Y seams, but the whole thing isn't even square!  Sorry Liz!  Oh well, with a bit of fudging I think it'll do.  (In my experience, doing it again usually results in a worse result, not a better!)  Let's hope this week's block is a bit easier!
