That just means more work straightening things up before sewing them together. I can do that. (Crankily.)
I discovered that I can match the diamonds better if I make tic marks on the paper backing to indicate where the seam should be sewn. I still mismatch plenty, but doing better than before.
If I hated all this work, I could just sew the diamonds into rows. This looks pretty cool too, but wouldn't be the stunner that a lone star will be. This is just me having fun with blocks, I'm not going to make this.
Quiltcetera commented that I'm not lazy. I am, really. I call myself Lazy Gal for my technique, rather than how much I get done. Am I going to resew and resew and resew some blocks just to make the seam match? Nope. Am I going to spend a lot of time cutting things out to exact measurements? Rarely. I like to just sew on something extra big and whack off the extra.
Netflix is torturing me. I got all my discs yesterday. Can't spread 'em out, can they. So I gotta get back to the Riches and try to do some quilting. Baby Pokey has been making that difficult - she just wants to sit on my lap. She's even letting me pet her a great deal, which is usually against the rules when she wants to sleep. So lots of kitty love and tv watching, no sewing, but maybe just a bit of quilting.
Oh, but before I run off, thanks ever so much to my fellow science fiction/Joss fans for commenting on my last post. I am really really looking forward to his new show Dollhouse. Read interviews with Joss and Eliza Dushku here. Let's just hope Fox treats it better than they have other shows...
