    No, I think it's the pattern. You can tell, though, that the white areas will turn by 90 degrees every horizontal row (see how the single white square is on the sides in the center, but will be at the top and bottom in the next row when you add more blocks?). That might be interesting, anyway. I think it looks nice

    I think the problem is that the center of the IC block is 5 squares across, an odd number. Because of that, you can't ever put two blocks together and get the same center (will always be even: 2*x=even #).

    If you wanted to "fix" it, you could leave off the outermost squares on a block, then make a sashing to finish it off. You could probably work it so that one of the rows of squares that you take off would make the sashing. Then you'll have 2*2+1=5 squares across and the intersections of the blocks will look just like the centers of the blocks.

    Your colors are great in this ,but the triple chain will look different with the scrapes instead of the solids, that is how in the pattern. so nothing is wrong with either you or the pattern.
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    I beleive that there is a white block with four colored squares that go next to your block.

    Week, I think it looks great, but if you just want one white block as they join, and you haven't constructed all you blocks, I would just eliminate one row on two adjoining sides. Then it should go together the way you want.

    I have to say I would continue on as instructed, it looks better than the sample of the folded edge. Save the traditional for another quilt.

    It looks great. I think the question now is not "how to fix it" (that's been answered), but "which do I like the best"? Either will be very nice and I love the scrappy look. I like it without adding sashing.

    However you figure out to fix this one, your colors are great.

    I think it's lovely as it is. I wouldn't change anything. I would put a border on it after it's pieced, and quilt away. You are doing a great job with your tiny piecing!

    Use the sashing strips like MTS suggested. It looks like an easy way to get the top to look 'traditional' and you won't have to 'think' when you are making the rest of the blocks.
