Close to done
These half blocks gave me a headache just thinking about how to go about it. Cutting a whole block in half does not work. You have to allow for seams on the outside of the quilt and you also have to take into account that the outer edge needs to be in the straight grain, not the cross. On the cross you get a wobbly edge. I recalculated these side blocks and they worked out fine.
The interesting thing now is that they just don;t look like Wrench blocks! Not sure what they look like, but the original block design seems to have faded away with them assembled.
