Hrm…it still needs more.
Yup. No matter how long I look at this block, and the teeny pieces of scrap still usable, I can’t help but think I could do better. It’s the inside of an intense snowflake block I found. The original block comes out to something around the size of 26″ x 26″ so even though I reduced the pattern by 50% it would still be too big for the 12″ finished block size required for the swap. But I really don’t like how it looks like this. I just might have to finish off the snowflake and let her decide how much of it she wants to use in the seam allowance. I hope I can find some white that matches in my stash.
The centre looks great though:
And I’m really glad I haven’t ripped the paper off yet:
