Pipes section sewn

I trimmed up a few pizza blocks tonight. Originally they should have been 10.5” square (unfinished). But I was concerned that the lime green background was not wide enough to get four 10.5” cuts from each width-of-fabric strip. I decided to go with 10.25”, which won’t take away too much from the finished size of the quilt. I’m glad I made that decision, because there was less than an inch of background left from the pieced sashing strips after I made the four cuts.

The pieced sashing was 2.75” wide, so that became the dimension of the cornerstone squares. I laid out four pizza blocks, four sashing strips and a cornerstone on the wall. It looks pretty good.
