    I would stick with the 6 1/2 so that the other skulls around Blue Eyes get lost in the seam. Each block for the 4 path will have to be 3 1/2 square. When you are done making your 4 path it will be 6 1/2, the same size of Blue Eyes.

    Where did yo get that fabric I WANT IT!!!

    I would stay with 6 1/2 inches, finished.. which means you would cut your piece 7 inches
    Then the 4 patches would be cut 3 3/4 to finish 3 1/4 each, giving you a 6 1/2 finished block. or 7 inch unfinshed block, same as your big block.

    What ever you do, here is how you figure it.

    take the finished size and add 1/2 inch for cutting size of the big block.
    take the finished size of the big block and divide by 2 to get finished size of four patch squares. add 1/2 inch to that and you get your cutting size for the 4 patch pieces...
