Hello! I am hoping that someone can help me. I am going to make the Quilter's Puzzle. I wanted to increase the size of each unit by 1/4" so that I can cut the block down to exactly 6 1/2" once everything is sewn together.
When I cut the pieces out I cut each 1/4" bigger.
The 2 x 2 inch square I cut 2 1/4 x 2 1/4. (Piece A)
The 2 x 3 1/2 inch rectangle I cut 2 1/4 x 3 3/4. (Piece B)
The last piece 2 3/4 x 6 1/2 I cut 3 x 6 3/4. (Piece C)
I sewed one piece A to each end of piece B.
That piece should be sewn to piece C. However, the combo piece A/B is too long.
What have I done wrong? For the life of me, I can't figure this out. Can you tell I didn't do well in math at school?
Thanks for your help.
