I Think I'm Retired

I think I am retired from any block exchanges.  I won some cactus blocks, 34 to be exact, but could only use 14 of them due to poor construction techniques. I mean we're talking non-existent seam allowances,  blocks 1/2 inch too small, etc.  Sigh.  So I made some more to put with the 8 I had already made for the pot.  It's a really easy and fun block to make.  This is the first time I've set blocks on-point and had sashing with cornerstones.  Oh, the problems I had.  My brain just could not figure things out!  Hah!  I think I needed to sash each block rather than try to add it row-by-row.  I must have done and redone every seam twice.  I finally finished yesterday after struggling over the past few days.
And wouldn't you know it...  I can't blame anyone for that but me.

Now to decide on how to quilt it.
Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
