I must have cut mine wrong or something because it came out 11 inches square. i added the boarder to make up the extra inch. This was a really hard block, to me anyway!

I found it difficult too. Just as well is was the last one. \

I love your block! The border really sets it off and it is just lovely. I wish I had thought to add a border to mine. Instead I remade it twice! Very creative and the border adds a beautiful frame to this challenging block. Great job!

thanks! I though about redoing mine, but those little windmills are really difficult!
