When I was looking for hazy purple UFOs to work on this month, I came across Trellis Garden, a "long-intentioned" project that was yet to be cut.

lots of hazy purple and evergreen fronds
I thought I had calculated correctly, but the separate cuts created a problem with the 24" repeat. I had only three complete repeats! I even tried using the horizontal repeats from far side of the fabric but those are never quite the same. In the end I started cutting individual squares that best matched the three I was already able to cut; the fabric started to look like Swiss cheese!
Initially I was struggling just to make the 13 blocks I needed for a small throw. In the end I was able to cobble together 18 blocks, enough for a larger throw!
