I want to know what 23/8" is. I've cut them twice and the sq is to big or small. Is it suppose to read 2 3/8" ? Very confused and upset.

If the backing is 61x76, the quilt will probably be about 2-3 inches less than that. I like the shades of gray illustration - wish they had put in an outline of the block only so I could color my own. Yes, I know this would be easy to do with graph papper but i am feeling lazy. If you enlarge the color illustration - the green and the one blue are the same texture fabric and the placement is always the same ..... lots of ideas running around. I like straight line sewing.

What size does this make? A twin? Should I double it for a queen?
