    Thank you everyone. I have checked and double checked by sewing the three pieces together and they come out right on but when I move on to begin the blocks it never fails there is always areas where it is right on then others short while others a tad over.....maybe I am being anal...but I sew just want to get a perfect block! I was wondering if turning a piece would make a difference? I mean if you cut a bunch squares on grain would it matter when you sewed them together and if the squares were turned? Could that make the difference? I have a Babylock Espire sewing machine. I will try moving the needle over a tad...not sure how to do that but will give it a shot today when I get to my sewing room. I love getting feedback from all of you, this board is fun and educating! Thanks

    Also once you have stitched.... carefully set your stitches & press your piece with an up down motion, trying not to stretch it. If your block is the correct size in some places, maybe you are veering off the 1/4" at the end of the seam..... ( I really have to work on this one).....
