    Oh no ... I just cut 80 2-1/2 squares and realized I should have made them 3-1/2. Well, looks like there is another scrap quilt in the making! Time for a break before I make another silly mistake :roll:

    If you think you are the only one that has done this I can raise my hand along with you. Your quilt will still be beautiful.

    That is what I was thinking, just make the same thing only on a smaller scale.

    Thanks so much for your suggestions. They will work perfectly. Sometimes I just have to step away from what I'm doing and ... thanks to you both ... the answer came! Thanks, again!

    I agree with the above quote. If it is possible you can add sashing to make it bigger.
