I had a harder time too than anticipated sewing these together. They were all made by different people, and seams were pressed differently. I did not anticipate not being able to easily get smooth seams and joints.
The end result is actually very fetching; I like it alot. All blocks are made from various 1930's repros, as I thought they'd be fun and playful for the children. It's in red and yellow so that it is fairly gender neutral too. I wanted to do free motion quilting but mistakenly took advantage of some free batting (which I thought was thinner than it really was). In the end, I was only able to straight-line (or sort of!) quilt in the ditch.
Here's a quick look at the back.
I will no doubt find a good and charitable use for the remaining blocks. Nobody should feel at all guilty! Many thanks to the great ladies in this block swap for their lovely blocks!!
