I've added the third block to my stay at home (SAH) round robin.....but I'm starting to wonder if sticking to 'the rules' and have precise cuts around each of my blocks is the right thing. Each block is free pieced, so not much in the way of parallel lines and matching corners, but then I've trimmed each block to the appropriate size after that, rather than leaving the edges wavy and then seeing what needed to happen next, and I'm not sure that it has been the best approach.
I've got three options: scrap it and start again, try and be a bit freer from now on, or carry on with the 'proper' measurements. I'll have to try and decide before the start of next month, but I'm leaning towards the middle approach at the moment.
In the meantime I've used the scraps from the rectangle to make a 'feature strip', which at about 22" long is enough to make into three fabric postcards and an ATC. Nice to use up these scraps like this, and especially nice as Nephew No. 2 can have a fabric birthday card on Monday so long as I finish it tomorrow and the postal service plays the game properly!
