    Thank you for sharing that great idea. Is there a possibility to get the measurements for the small block as well.

    • Hi, thanks for watching. The small block measures 8 1/2″ (8″ finished) and the plain squares are cut 2 1/2″ square and the squares for the half square triangles are cut at 3″. After sewing the half square triangles they should be trimmed to measure 2 1/2″. Then they are all ready to join up. Enjoy.
