I've included this first photo because I have been making more cross blocks and, having set out to cut a load of random sized bits it amused me to see that I had, in fact, done a fair job of cutting them all the same. This speaks to the idea that if you cut freehand for long enough you end up with more control than you might expect (even if that's not really what you want!)
A quick progress shot...
and another little gap filled in.
There are a few places now where I will need to add bits to make things the same size before I join them (bottom right, left hand side) but this is still in several big pieces and some of the discrepancies will go as I sew them together.
