Well all this sewing has finally started paying off. I have all the nine patch blocks, sewn, pressed, recut, trimmed to 5.25" and resewn abd repressed back into four patch units that measure 10".
The pattern has them set 7 by 8 which will be 66.5 by 76.0". Then a narrow accent border followed by a 6 inch outer border. It should be about about 80 by 88". Oh and I forgot more little circles to applique if needed!
I'm getting a little ahead of myself - hope it doesn't take me as long to sew the blocks together as it did to make them.
