That's what I plan to do. I drew this in EQ7 and printed my sheet...

I'm sorry to be such a pain, but the "dotted" line is the 1-15/16"...

While figuring out the half-size, I printed the page at 50% and the Template is not accurate for our purpose. So I checked again, and the dotted line is the "good" line to cut at for full-size (but not for half-size: we have to remove first the 1/4 seem allowance from that dotted line and trace a line, and then with this new square, print it at 50%, and once it is printed, add back 1/4 inch. This should measure 1-7/32".)

Or Am I missing something?

Yes, Irene, you will cut on the solid line.

No, you are right Janet. If all is measured and cut accurately, and pieced with an exact 1/4 inch, it will be on target. I was just mentioning a comment in Julie Cefalu's video - to cut some pieces a tad larger, in order to have room to cut exactly to size at the end. But now that I watched it again, it was for the width not for the height that she mentioned it. But I will do it for the height as well -as I'm working half-size, the margin for error is almost to none.

It was just the measurement for the block size - Since the background is 8-1/2 x 9-1/2, the block size needs to be 8X 7 (not 4 x 4) finished to get a panel 8" x 16" fnished.

As for the M block, according to my measurements, the cut size of 8 1/2 x 9 1/2 on the pattern is correct. I didn't cut the strip (water) larger, and if the background was 7 x 8 finished, it wouldn't be large enough for the letter M. Am I missing something here Andree? :?

I just completed the K block and noticed a couple of issues in the directions.
It says to cut 6 green squares - it appears that you only need 4, maybe I missed something.
On the center square, it says to cut one piece of black and cut crosswise - you only end up with 2 triangles and need 4 - I tried cutting each in half again and the resulting square was too small. :roll:

For the K block, you need 2 black (#19) squares 2 1/8", then cut diagonally. For the green (#6), you only need 4 squares, NOT 6. Sorry about the errors. :oops: I will get it fixed on the pattern. Thanks for spotting them!

I noticed the same thing. Glad I haven't sewn anything yet.
