  1. Hi Amanda
    Thanks for the great tutorials on Youtube.

    I just had a query regarding the sizes of the small blocks. The instructions say for the small squares to cut 2.5 inch squares…… I made a test square to check my fabric selection and found the 2.5 inch squares are to large, and stick out beyond the 2 7/8 inch corner squares.

    It looks like your ones on the video are 1.5 inches. I cut mine down to 1.5 and it all fits together and measures the 5.5 inch finished square size as mentioned. Can you just check that sizing for me, I’m pretty new to quilting so I just wanted to check, before I go to far.


    • Hello!

      Thanks for your enquiry!

      You are totally correct in thinking the 2.5″ squares are too big! The squares are definitely meant to be cut at 1.5″! Thank you so much for pointing this out to me!
      I must of been off with the fairies when I typed it out. (Oh dear!)

      I’ve since edited and corrected the cutting measurements on my video and I hope now that this pattern will work better for you as well as others who want to give it a go!!

      Thanks again for letting me know!
      Enjoy making!

      Amanda 😊
