Frequent readers will be shocked at what happened next: I ripped it out. We all know how I feel about that! But it was only two seams and I needed to fix it. Luckily I had another piece of the "stripe" that was big enough to cut it again on the diagonal. I wanted to use the exact same placement instead of remaking the block with different scraps so that it would be a fair comparison.
