Bonita they are suppose to be 13 in mine came out around 14 1/2  I had to cut quilt a bit off. and its still to big.  Now I didn't use the templates on this one so it may be the templates are correct ,  but This one was easy to do with just cutting. I'd be intrested to see how they come out with templates.

Ok all here is block #5 this was not hard ,but again I had to cut it down alot to make it 13 ins . Square it up as you put your sections together , that  helped alot and it came out exctually 13.5 in  Each section should be 7 in ..

Addtition ,I have found out I'm wrong on the size of the blocks So pay no attention to what I told you .. The are suppose to be 14 in ,no 13 .  I guess I'll make this one over .LOL

Barbara,

your block is lovely. I like the fabrics you've used.

Jacy is right. The blocks are 14 inches finished (14.5 unfinished).

Barbara, mine were coming out 15 in. And I know what I did to cause that. I am going to have to do mine over, but I am going to start from scratch. Your blocks are sure beautiful. Love the fabric you are using.
