Has anyone else had problems with the Patriots in Petticoat directions? I have found that if you adhere to a1/4" seam rule that some blocks will not measure even close to a 10" finished (or 10 1/2" unfinished) block.
I have tried graphing the blocks out on graph paper so I could measure each segment to be sure the finished block would be 10 1/2" unfinished size. In some blocks, the math just does not add up!
My favorite quilt shop owner has indicated that it is because the quilt pattern was generated from EQ software that measures in smaller increments than our rulers. If that is the case, I would hesitate trying another BOM project unless I knew how the pattern was generated.
hi jackie, welcome. i haven't tried that pattern, but that is really frustrating. sometimes you can go online to their, the book's, website and they will have corrections posted.
