I got out the seam ripper and removed the border strips and triangles. I cut 4 new triangles to insert between these outer strips and the center block. Sewed them on, decided it looked awful because I picked one of the darkest rasberry shade, proceeded to remove those triangles and made 4 new ones in the light pink. Today I was determined!
Now will those outer border strips and black triangles still fit ?............... 2 fit, 2 did not. I added pieces onto the ends of one of the "did nots" and re-trimmed it. For the 2nd "did not", I removed the black triangle, made a new stripset, then put it back together.
So glad to have this block, finished and correct!

I cleaned off the design wall so I could see them all together. This photo inspires me to plan some more redwork in the setting triangles to frame it - and some more borders. It will be a "plan as you go" kind of project. Sometimes those are the most fun and work out the best for me. Isn't this awesome...
