Thanks, Margo, for posting the pictures. I couldn't get the images to come up on my post.

I, also, had 2 1/4 inch when my lattice was done. I know the printer was set right because I checked. So, I was more than half way through when I found there was a problem. I continued making them and tomorrow I will see what adjustments need to be made. It looks like they will fit my center square but I won't be able to put a floater between the lattice and the center. I am fine with that since I couldn't decide what fabric I wanted to use there anyway.

Joyce It's looks lovely and no one would know you had a problem, and I think what you have done to fix your problem makes you a better quilter in the end, although on the day it may not have felt like that.....he he he :wink: :wink: :wink:

Joyce,

I'm so sorry that your blocks were off, but I love what you did to fix it. Maybe you can just make next month's border wider?

Joyce, I hope you don't mind, but I've captured your photos from MQR.

I didn't check my paper piecing to be sure it measured 2-1/2" and, yep, I made all 112 of them!! They measured a smidgen over 2-1/4". I was not going to redo them so I removed the borders from the center that I had on from Month 1. Put a small border on to make it measure what my lattice border measured. I sewed the lattice border on and added a small border to the outside of it. Now I will wait until next month to see what the next border is to decide what to do. My center now measures 31" and it needs to be 32-1/2" so I will correct that next month before adding the applique border. I was going to add pictures but can't seem to get it to work.
