riding high in april, shot down in may

can anyone see it?
diagonal madness is driving me mad.

so, i started by piecing squares then arranging them into rows and sewed them together. then i started on one end, sewing the rows together until i got to the longest point in the middle. to make things easier on myself and avoid handling too much bulk, i decided to start on the other end and then sew the two halves together.

take a closer look at the two halves.

i have flipped the rows inadvertently on the second half so the two halves don't match up. now i'll be spending the day with my trusted seam ripper separating the rows on one half and resewing.
