So... as I mentioned on my last post, I had messed up on the cutting, leading to this conversation with my mom:
Mom (amused): "What were you thinking?"Me (perplexed): "I have no idea."
I really had no idea why I wasn't paying closer attention in the first place.With more diamonds to cut out, I even said to myself - "Stop and think about it first. You don't have any more of this fabric". Thusly assured I had it all planned correctly, I began cutting. Except... these diamonds were supposed to be cut the opposite direction of the first batch - and didn't reverse my cutting! I cut two strip sets into "left" diamonds when they should have been "right".
Luckily I realized what I was doing, leaving me with 5 "right" strip sets cut correctly. Instead of the original layout in the tutorial, mine will end up looking like a friendship braid.

All things considered, that's not a bad thing, especially since the fabrics are a Fall / Thanksgiving theme. This time of year especially makes me remember my family and friends. Although it was completely unintentional, I can't think of a better way for this to be turning out!
