What advice would you give someone starting this project? Since the instructions didn't have the right size (every part of the block should measure 6,5 inch, but it was larger), I scaled it in Photoshop to the right size. The block has now the right size, unfinished 12,5 inch ;)

okay - it looks like you have solved a problem a lot of us are having. Your points will not be cut off on the four straight sides when sewing to another piece. How did you do that? All of our points on the straight sides go right to the edge.

I try to explain what I've done. I opened the page with the red template in Photoshop, scaled it to 97% and printed it. Then the to short sides measured 6,5 inch, this is the right size. I tried the same with the blue template, but it was a bit distorted. So I copied the red template, flipped it, printed it and draw a line by hand. Then it was okay :) You can also draw a new template, using inch paper...

Sorry, I mean that the two short lines should measure 6 inches on the template, then add 1/4 inches for the seams.

it appears everyone has to scale it down. Most said 96%, so will have to figure that out for myself on my printer as all are different

I have to say that you have done a good job but I am not sure if I like the pattern. I love the fabric in previous blocks so I think it is the pattern. It might be alright when the quilt is finished.

Love the color combo - very nicely done!
