What advice would you give someone starting this project? Check your seams and paired patches as you go. I had to unpick and resew this block because although I got the seams matched up the finished block wasn't true. When I paired the patches I didn't always get them "square" and to the correct dimensions. So second time around I checked and squared off every pair, and row, as I went. Success!
