I am less than thrilled to realize that I need to trim up all of these Short Story blocks and I don't want to. As in like a two year old, planting my feet deep, I DON'T WANT TO! Seriously, the directions call for lining up the 45 degree line here and another line here and another line there and then trimming all four sides. I will not be making this pattern again. I am sorely tempted to just sew them together without trimming and hope for the best.I laid the blocks out and then rearranged a few to make it more pleasing to me. I am a row short of blocks, but I think this is plenty. Seriously don't. want. to. trim. UGH. So I just stare at it and wish I might have made Plan C which maybe involves less trimming.
