Everything worked out fine as long as you don't have to match seams.
But, on the blocks where the strips had to match, there was no way they were going to.
You can see, they are all off by about 1/2 inch.
I went back over the Pattern to see if I missed something along the way
but couldn't find anything.
I decided to contact Fons and Porter to see if they had had anyone contact them
with the same problem.
Here is their Reply back ~
Thanks for contacting Fons & Porter with your question. After reviewing the pattern and the demonstration parts from our video I can offer two solutions. Sorry to say, since I only made a portion of the blocks I didn’t catch this earlier.
1.Leave the blocks “as is” and call it a design choice – I realize this may not be your first choice. It probably wouldn’t be mine either.
2.You can trim two sides of each block – the side that has the long 2-1/2” strip and its adjacent triangle.
I apologize for this – during the writing of this pattern it concerned me that in the designers quilt, there were some strips that appeared narrow (see page 82 in our magazine) I believe that they trimmed blocks so that they too could align the seams perfectly. It’s somewhere in the math that the issue occurs. Again, I’m sorry for the distress this may have caused. We try our best to produce error-free designs, but sometimes this happens.
Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting
I had the Quilt completely finished before I got their Reply back,
so needless to say,
I'll have to say mine is a Design Choice !?!
Might be good to know if you want to make this Quilt.
