    no. it's 12-1/2"

    i didn't explain myself properly.
    i should have explained that i made the last round solid instead of piecing it according to the pattern.
    i didn't want a square in the corner to create a square where this block met the other one in the top i used it for.

    Thanks Patrice, I have my graph-it paper out trying to figure the piece size to make like Sulbug with out the outside edge. Just in cast I use sashing on the quilt top. Thank your for your quick reply.

    Jaba.............Another wonderful block for your quilt collection. I still just love those fabric's together. They just make me smile, when I see your new blocks posted. What size quilt top do you plan on making with all of your blocks? Thank you too, for sharing with all of us today!!

    Patrice...............I looked at your Small Top & I love it too. I don't know why I couldn't think of something like that!! Maybe I have just been too busy putting together my Grandmother's Flower Garden blocks to think of such a neat idea. Thank you for sharing with all of us.

    Oh Judy...............I absolutely love your March block, it is so pretty!! Your photo is so bright & detailed, I think I might need to take another picture of my block, so everyone can see the detail. Good work.

Keep up the good work. We will be anxious to see your April block, when it's time to post that pattern. Hmmm........I wonder what that pattern might be!!

    All the blocks look great. It's amazing how different color schemes make a totally different overall look!


    Well...I changed mine. I am using 3 fabrics and couldn't find a fourth fabric in my stash that I was willing to use.
    Eventually, I'll have to add a 4th. fabric but I will have to shop for it. For this month's block, I used one color for the center instead of the 9-patch. I also changed my unit dimensions and did the block a bit differently than described but it works out to 12.5"x12.5". Worked for me.


    Edited to add pic. Pic taken with cell phone and doesn't show true colors. Green fabric is a bit brighter than pictured.
