Fussy cutting

imageI’m not usually a fan of fussy cutting, but sometimes it’s what you need to do. I decided I wanted four squares with this ball/flower in the middle. Now I remember why I don’t like fussy cutting! There’s too much wasted fabric.

imageOn the right are the squares. All the fabric on the left is not usable for this block. Of course I won’t throw anything away. I’ll save it for another project.

I’m making a block for a friend. It’s a liberated or wonky star.

imageHere it is, done!image
