Last week's post was about a quilt top I made with one of those sets. Some of the squares were cut wrong in that pack. I went ahead and used them anyway and yeah, the quilt looks fine, really.
But I decided to do the other "plaid" charm square packs I bought and oh, no. Way too many of them are like this:
What to do?
- cut the squares down and get them all evened up? (nope - too much work and I'm not THAT wild about the plaids)
- use them as they are? (nope - there's just way too many of them and unlike the previous set, these squares are going to SCREAM "crooked!")
- use just the ones that are OK? (nope - there won't be enough to make anything I'd want to make)
- throw them away? (Oh, I hate waste...)
And from here out, you can bet I'll be looking more closely at charm square packs before I buy them!
