    Hello Susan
    Although I,m sewer I,m very new to quilting , your tutorials are wonderful and helpful, learning the jargon etc , my question to you is the “5” squares you speak of, are the 1/4 inch seam allowance already included or are they over and above ( 5 1/4″) thank you for taking your precious time to read and answer Lou

    • Hello Lou,
      The 5″ squares I use are cut at 5″, so if they are sewn in as is they will reduce to measure 4 1/2″. This 5″ cut is a common cut, sometimes called “charm squares”.
