First of all, I never knew you existed!I;m happy to have found a place where I can talk about quilting and I won't be looking at a face like a deer in headlights.
I have a problem. I'm using an old quilting guide to make what I thought was an easy quilt for my first grandchild. It calls for drawing a 5" square across the fabric with half inch intervals. When you cut it out you should have a 5 and a half inch square. Correct? Then you make a four patch block out of 2 and a half in squares cut out the same way making a 3" square. When I put the 4 patches together the block is no longer the same size as the 5 and a half inch block.
Am I doing something wrong here? Please help me out!
