I really wanted my stripes to be all in the same direction! Kaye, do you have any tips on cutting directional fabric? Thanks!

It's a lovely block, I made another comment on it above.

I believe it has to do with the placement of your HST units, rather than your cutting. The three that are out of kilter need to be swapped around with each other and you will see that you did it just perfect.

I see that, but the lower right corner would still be wrong. I arranged and rearranged them for half an hour. I had those 2 lined up when I laid out the block Must have mixed them up when I was sewing :( I guess I should have just made another square that would have been right! lol :)

Your points are very nice! It's beautiful colors. I see where you mislaid a few pieces down also, just the 3. If it is still in block form, you could easily pick out those square and zip them back in so they line up!
