As a quilter, let me say that the size of the finished item can be adjusted with the size of your borders, etc. AND it's your quilt. Unless it HAS TO BE some size to fit something (a crib, a bed, etc.), it doesn't matter.

I'd be glad that the three 'coins' pieces were the same size and sew on. :)


So did you really use a 1/2 inch or a 1/4 inch.Difference could be the thread, the pressing, but if you're consistant, what the heck. Did you calculate how long its supposed to be, maybe the pattern is wrong? Sometimes I measure the seam alowances to make sure my foot is correct. Consistancy is good, so if they're all the same, why worry?


I agree with the thinking of they are all the same size, so it's okay.

I found a few wool sweaters at a thrift store a few days ago! I'm excited to make a few things from Betz book.


When I first started quilting back in the early 80s, an experienced quilt maker in our group told me not to sweat the small stuff. In her words: "Would a blind man on a galloping horse at midnight notice??" An extra inch or two on the length of the quilt isn't going to make any difference. If you'd already cut your sashing and borders, I would have suggested that you trim one of the end coins by an inch.
