Happy aqua

Heather sent me a pile of happy aqua fabrics to use in her block.

Snip.Sew.Send. Heather's block
The instructions were very straightforward, the block went together quickly, and I love how it turned out (such pretty fabrics!). However, I'm a little worried because the block isn't 13" square as the instructions indicated it should be. Mine ended up 13" x 12.75". :(

I checked and re-checked, and it seems like maybe the cutting instructions in my direction sheet were a little off? The last piece needs to be cut a quarter-inch wider-- 5.5" x 13" (instead of 5.25" x 13")-- in order to make it work out correctly. Meep! Since I don't have any extra fabric to fix it, I'm really hoping that Heather will be able to make it work.

It looks great! I'm excited to see what other colors Heather sent out. After getting all yellow fabrics, I was really surprised by your aqua block! I wonder if mine was a little short too... I didn't measure it after I finished!
