I completed the 15th block-of-the-week from Barbara Brackman’s civil war quilt. It’s supposed to finish at 8″ so should measure 8 1/2″…..mine is 8 3/4, grrrrrrrr. In the picture it looks short on the top right corner but that must be from not laying flat because it is 8 3/4″ square.
I’m happy with my fabric selections. I may try and make another block cutting the center square pieces just a little shy of the given measurements to try and achieve 8 1/2″.
