Silsbee Did you use this tutoral for your block? I used this one first and did it twice and was only at 11.5 inches. Made me crazy so I did the other tutorial and then I was fine. Just wondering if it was totally me.

Quilt455 , yes I did use this Sew Mama Sew one, and it was indeed too short at first!! Drove me crazy! I adjusted my seams and the two end pieces came out perfectly at 12.5 long, but the center section was at about 13... I don't know. I just ripped out the seams on the center section and tried again after making my seam bigger. It was cheating (and I hope it matches with the other blocks!), but I just couldn't figure out what else to do. Next time I will try a different tute if I have this problem. Oy! Anyway, not just you. ;-)
