Math is stupid...or maybe I am
You see the square in the middle? I had no idea what size to make the square. The book has blocks from 6 inches up to 14 inches and uses templates for that middle block. Who has time or energy to dig in a drawer, find a ruler and measure a template? Not me, that's for sure. So, I'd rather, cut a square with my Go! fabric cutter, sew it together and see if it fits. Well, the first square I tried was a finished 4 1/2 inch because that was what I had. The outer corners are based on the 4 1/2 inch square so maybe? Not even close. The only other quarter square die cutter I have is the 6 inch. Surely that was going to be way too big! Nope, it was just a little bit too big.
