    I think that is a very GOOD question...I was thinking the same thing.

    Great tute...nice of you to do that...I really like doing this block but have to say I like it much better with a larger square for the center...fills it in more...and I like smaller blocks in general but love the method..a fun project
    Not a dumb question. If you want a larger center block....here is what you can do. Say your outside blocks are 5 inches. Cut the center square block 7 inches. Sew together as indicated. If you want to make a faux Cathedral Windows, take another peice that is maybe 6.5 inches, put in the center and fold down the edges of the block. I will do one tonight and post it when I am done.

    If the center block is bigger, how can you make it tight enough so that it doesn't pleat and lays flat if you want to make the cathedral windows?

    You still sew it the same way you would for the 5 inch block. The center will just be a little larger. Press it flat - like you would the smaller block. When you put in the 'window' piece, and fold the background block edges, I would sugest that those be machine stitched. That will secure the entire piece. I will do one tonight and post the pics.

    Blast these double posts. Those October Gremlins sure are BUSY!!!!

It should look just like the first pic posted from dgreenan.

    I made this quilt using 10" squares and stitched the tops down. However, I found if I didn't pull the center square tight enough it didn't lay right. Putting in the additional center square in alternate rows covered more area and gives it a totally different look, which is my favorite out of the examples shown in the book.

    Did the blocks, but it got so late that I didn't have time to post pics. Will get to that tonight.
