A LITTLE MISTAKE
A BIG MISTAKE
So I have to piece it together from my various blue scraps. I get a 24.5" square in the end, but put together very oddly, with uneven rectangles and seams everywhere! When I finally appliqué the top dandelion, I will have to decide whether to cut away the blue behind it to reduce bulk, or leave it as is. I suspect I'll cut it away, because I won't want those intersecting seams to create weird wear patterns on the appliqué over time and washing.
Lesson learned: next time, cut the largest strips first. After the subcut, I'll have the rest of the strip available for future, smaller cuts, if needed.

"just a piece of sky!" has instantly put the finale song from Yentl into my head - thanks!
