# Thread: Need help with math on this block

1. Merry Christmas Everyone!

I need help with this block http://www.quilterscache.com/S/Squar...res2Block.html

What size do you cut color number 2. I am not good with math.

Thanks,
JulieM

2. I would think it would be 6 1/2 in.
Count you sections. you have two small squares in the center and the large square. the others have two rectangles, so #2 would be the width of one rectangle.

3. On page 2, it says to cut a 6 1/2" square.

4. I believe the middle blue would be 6.5 cut and 6 finished. Try a sample block first before cutting the rest.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

5. I'm fairly sure it's 6 1/2" square. Although I checked and double checked, it's definitely not given in the directions. I came up with 6 1/2" by looking at the two squares next to it. They are both 3 1/2": 3 1/2" x 2" = 7", minus the 1/4" seam allowance on each (1/4" x 2 = 1/2") where they are sewn together would make that unit 6 1/2".

6. Purple's right. Scroll down on Page 2 and it says 6 1/2" square. You guys are good--I couldn't do it just looking at the picture!!

7. Page 2 has a list of needed supplies at the bottom, below the sample. It tell you the size of each piece. You need a 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" square.

The format for the pattern is the same on all the quilter's cache pattern I have checked. Sizes of fabric cuts comes after the example.

Happy piecing :D

Don't feel silly... Many of us have read, reread, a part of a pattern, and a portion of it does not make sense or seems missing:wink: It is better to ask then guess and end up making wonky blocks :D:D:D

11. julie M ... You have chosen a very nice pattern. I have used it for a wall handing and it came out very well. I use Quilter's Cache patterns often and once you get used to her format, it gives you many very usable blocks. Forge on, you will make it!

12. Marcia (quilterscashe) has some of the easiest blocks and so many free ones
for those of you who have never logged in on her website, I want you to know that even on dial up her site comes up very fast. You can spend a lot of time checking out her patterns
It is easy to over look a part of instructions or misunderstand things

13. I think it is 6.5 like all of the above LOL
