    Always add 1/2" for seam allowances on each direction. If you are piecing rectangular units to get that size, add another 1/2" for each unit. so, if you were doing an elongated 9 patch, you would add an addition 1/2".

    Hmmm ... the 20" is easy, sure you figured that much out, but the 23 is an icky number.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
