I tried making blocks like your second set of units and when I tried to match them to other units they were all too small. I traced a template, as I remember.

Any idea why? Maybe I didn't print the templates out the right size. Hey, I just thought of that! I bet that's it. It just came to me because I remember when I was doing the 2013 BOTM here the templates would not print out the right size in Chrome but hey did in Internet Explorer.
yes that happened to me also when making a template copy i could send to others. u can change the settings on the printer and also not use a border when u r printing out. It is easy if you know what the sizes of the sides are supposed to be. sometimes when I have a problem like that i will go to sleep with it on my mind and lol at 3am awaken with the solution. Then I just have to get up and do it right then lol . Us quilters do become obsessed sometimes

Ok. well took a tiny break. went on short road trip. but back at machine hard at it Also went to the gym Monday and worked out with a trainer lol. Had to crawl out of bed the last 2 mornings, but will go back tomorrow. Ok Here are the latest pics of the latest unit. This one is made up of one square and 4 HST. When I am doing these i always try to make sure i have them center to center. The square I fold wrong side to wrong side and crease it with my nail, and the HST i fold right side to right side and crease it in middle . then your crease in your HST will fit right over the crease in you square and u know u have the center. I place a pin there and one on each side of center. This was an easy unit to make. I had to do 24 of these So far we have a total of 104 units with 416 pieces. Here are the pics. also a pic of all 3 sets of units.

Is your pattern in a book? I've seen instructions on line, but I need sizes and number clearly written out, so I can follow them, and I don't know which book or pattern instructions are best. Any recommendations?

Congrats on working out! Proud of you. It's so hard at first when you're so sore. Your diamonds look great!
