I had so many great suggestions for fixing roll roll cotton boll
quilt. Thank you. Here is where I realized I had made all the alternate blocks too small
.The easiest fix is the best fix. If I had actually string pieced the blocks, this fix would not have worked. The diagonal lines would have been compromised, but, since I don't like string piecing, and I had had some crumb blocks made already, I had decided earlier, I would try this quilt with crumb piecing. I have to see it visually, so I even made a square from paper, and folded it on the diagonal to see where I was missing the fabric. Then I took 2 inch strips and started adding them to the bottom, leaving the strip long enough to get the diagonal cut.
Putting 2 triangles together was enough to make it big enough.
After trimming, it will be ready for assembling the rows.
