Issues with the Sun
Oh dearie me! I've had e-mails from a few people who are making the BOM. They said their sun turned out too big to fit on their 15.5" background square. I hate that some of you are having problems.
I laid a measuring tape on mine to show that mine does fit. I'm not sure why some suns are bigger than others when they all measure one inch per side.
As for solutions, here are some suggestions that I've heard from you guys:
1. Let the end hexies on the sun overlap onto the sashing.
2. Make the hexies on the end a bit smaller (3/4" sides).
3. Make the sun center smaller.
4. Leave off the last hexie on each sun ray.
So sorry for this issue. I hope you will all get creative to make yours work!
