    The center fits this time, but my block is 11" square. My others are 12" after trimming.

    I meant my other 3 BOTM's are 12.5" square. So I am adding a background color frame around this.

    I don't think pressing or the direction pressed could make that big of a difference. So I can't figure it out.

    I don't understand why everyone's blocks keep coming out different sizes. All my other blocks came out 12". Not this one is 12 1/2". From 11" to 12 1/2" is a big difference.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    Mine have all been 12.5". I had this one turned wrong and added the corners wrong so it ended up small. Two of us (that I've seen) did this. I am doing the initial one over. It is 13" as laid out so I'm guessing it will be 12.5" when I'm done sewing it.

    You girls are making me nervous. I've always had to do a scant 1/4 with patterns from Quilter Cache. They usually say it makes a 12" square. But it doesn't say a 12" finished square. When I make blocks, I like a 12 1/2" square that finishes to 12". I'm hoping to do mine tomorrow, so I guess I'll work really slow. I've wanted to make this block for a while now, so was glad to see it was this months block. Also, when I do Quilter Cache I use a certain machine. I have two machines I use, but one doesn't move the needle, so I use the other, I just have to remember to set the needle where its supposed to go. Once set...I'm all set.

    Anyone have the AQS 2013 calendar? I just flipped from April to May (ok, a few days late!) and the quilt for May has one of our double asters at its center!
