I was starting to question my own abilities here. Downloaded a pattern from a quilt magazine for this zebra quilt, the pieces aren't fitting together at all. Sat down and really gave it some thought - take three 2" strips and sew together. check. sew those to the side of a 5" square... 2+2+2=6 minus 1/2" for seams still equals 5.5 inches and that is supposed to fit on a 5" square. What the heck?
