I wanted the finished block to be a 9" block rather than a 12" block. No problem... Simply reduce the cutting dimensions by 25%.
Well, not quite. My first attempt ended up not even square!
It is 8-1/4 x 9-1/4... What!?!?
Ok, so it is all in the math. You have to take the finished size of the piece (not the cutting size) multiply it by 75% and then add 1/2" for seam allowances. **Sigh**
Much better! So the solution is all in the math!
And as a bonus... Here is a sneak peek at my wedding ring block!
It still needs to have some stitching on it to finish it, but I am pleased!
I'll be in my sewing room this weekend continuing work on this project... Happy weekend!
