There is a pattern in the "Quiltmaker " November/December 2010 magazine that I would like to try to make. But when I read the directions the block begins with an 8 inch square of two fabrics and after it is cut and sewn back together a couple of time I am to square it to a 9 inch square. I'm having a huge DUH moment. If I start with an 8 inch square how can I come up with a 9 inch square? Has anyone here made this block with these directions?
