On Sundays I like to "recreate" by playing with fabric.  Today I made another version of the new block:

This one's a winner! (the black/white/red)  I would just like to have a wide variety of red squares in among the black and white.  I'll have to explore my stash and see what there is.

This time I cut the squares larger than the pattern said.  Instead of 6" I cut the squares at 6 5/8".  The small squares were cut at 2 1/8" instead of 2".  That way, when the quarter blocks were completed they were able to be trimmed to 5" as suggested in the pattern.

Very often I find I need to cut a larger square than specified in order to end up with an adequate sized final block.  Is that your experience also?
