Scavenger Hunt Sew Along - Clue Seven

* C l u e   S e v e n *
No sampler quilt would be quite right,
without a nine patch in plain sight.

This sweet little quilt, the Nine Patch Posy,
will help our quilt come out just rosy.

  1. What's the measurement of the 9-patches squared up by the triangles?
    The number on page 55 says 4-3/4".
    My block is more like 3-3/4"...

    1. Nine patches with brown triangles should be trimmed to 3-5/8 I think

  2. Wonderful patterns!! I loved browsing through your blog, dear!! The post has inspired me to make my own 9-inch blocks. Thanks for the instructions. Happy stitching!!
