I am very new to quilting, and my project is a disappearing nine patch. I'm making it out of charm packs and some 5 in squares I cut myself. So, my nine patches are made out of 5 in squares and I'm stuck. I have all of the nine patches made and pressed, but I can't figure out the dimensions to square up each nine patch. Can you help me? Pretty please?
My inner patch measures 4.5 inches, but the outside patches will be sewn together, so I need to leave a 1/4 inch for the seam, right?? :?:
