When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
Twoxover, I emailed Carol Daok to ask how much fabric to make all of the backgrounds the same. She didn't know how much to buy. I bought 7 yards for my background and had enough with a little left. I can't wait to see your blocks. Anael your Alabama is beautiful. Keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing more
Anael, your first block is beautiful. Can't wait to see the rest. I just got my quilt back from Charisma. Need to do the binding then I will post a pic. I love it.
Anael--that is a nice first block. I look forward to seeing more!
Anael, I too had trouble getting a full 12.5" block so I cheated and cut the last pieces bigger. For example, on Alabama, the last two pieces on sections A & B call for 3.75" and 4.75". I cut the squares at 4" and 5". This gave me the extra I needed with no worries.
Thanks TeddybearLady and NYgal.
Good to know I"m not the only one having trouble getting a full 12.5" block. Thanks for the advice whitepine! And thanks all for the compliments on my first block

Nobody is completely useless, you can always serve as a bad example
Just stopped by to see what was being posted and noticed the last few comments on size. If you do not trim the block until the 4 quadrants are sewn into a square, then remove the paper and press, you can then trim it to perfect size. I always did that and had no problem with size.
