1/16″ doesn’t really matter on a 10″ block. You can probably ease that in and no one will be the wiser. Not so when the blocks are 2″.
I am nearing assembly of my Circa 2016 quilt. The outer pieced border calls for 120 2″ HST blocks. Yep, that is a lot of little pieces. When you are creating in size small, precision is critical and squaring up is necessary.
Hopefully all this will be a top within the next week.
