Well I am posting my progress so far, ie. before it all goes horribly wrong! With triangles twice the size and seams that are now visible to the human eye and pressed open. I am a little more optimistic. I am even attempting a 'LynneBobSquarePants' block!!!
The next stage of the QAL has been posted - I think I'll save that for the weekend as I am now quite eager to see how this floral experiment turns out.
