    The line I quoted is written:
    Alle Masse sind ohne Nahtzugabe (Nahtzugabe 0,75 cm je Seite dazugeben.)

    Thanks for your replies!!

    I think I am going to plan on adding the 1.5--I can always cut stuff down (on my mock-up one), but it'll be harder to add to it!
    Yes you have to add the seam allowance

    Sorry, didn't read all posts.
    "Ohne Nahtzugabe" means "without seamallowance" so, yes add the 1.5 cm.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome and for all your help!!

    I added 1.5 cm on all sides, and it 'appears' to be working. I have all the pieces on my 'test' quilt cut, and started to sew 'em together, but decided to call it a night for now!! Hopefully I'll get the rest of the top assembled tomorrow, and I'll feel comfortable enough to start on the one for my friend!! I just don't want to make mis-cuts on hers--no way to get more fabric if I do!!

    Your instructions mean: seam allowances NOT included, you have to add them on.
    If you need more help with German, PM me and I'll help.
