4bird2 asked:
Terry, I had trouble with getting my blocks 12 1/2 inches square also. I discovered that if there was a template for the pattern my computer was printing it out at only 98%. Personally, I love the borders on the blocks, bright colors, and batiks. I hope you're having as much fun as I am.
TerryChase answered:
I've decided to standardize all my smaller blocks by making them smaller and adding borders.. I am having a ball with this., and I admit to changing virtually every block. The stripes on my first 2 are half the width, for example. It's a hoot, and everything ends up a different size, hence the borders.
