My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

  1. How do you get a 9 inch finished block here? With 2.25 inch cut strips, finishing at 1.75, 5 across is 8.75 finished. Where am I losing 1/4 inch?

  2. Thank you- thought I was going crazy. And so in the B block the 5 7/8 measure should be 5 3/4 ? 1.75times 3 plus a half inch?
