    When sewing on the bias make sure to starch your fabric and try not to pull or stretch it too much. The starching will help them keep their shape. You should be ok.

    I recently was told by a lady who has quilted for years to use 1/8 inch seam but I am afraid to try it. I never thought about making my stitches smaller. Thanks for the tip .I might try it now.

    Thanks everyone! I popped on the board and read, with much gratitude, all your suggestions and advice. I did check the math and it turns out the original square size I was working with was typed wrong. I am going ahead with sewing 1/8" seam allowance and notated the mistake on the pattern directions.

    thank you everyone- I thought I had to abandon this project and quickly find another ( I hate not finishing stuff). I truly appreciate your help and advice!

    Peace,
    Deb
