    I assume what you are talking about is

    http://www.hancocks-paducah.com/Item--i-ATK-138

    What is not lining up? The large squares or the small surounding squares?

    Have you checked your seams lines? are they all a consistent 1/4" With those small squares, being a little off will throw them off quicker than a big square. Check your pressing too.

    Try to press the lighter fabric toward the dark so that your seams don't show thru the lightr fabrics.
