Mama Pea left a kind, encouraging comment on my Linoleum block as each of my three blocks continue to finish smaller than they are supposed to be:
If I might suggest, when you're piecing, the secret to having your work come out to exact size is to be very careful about making your seams 1/4". Even being off by the width of a line of thread(!) can make a difference. The more seams in a block, the easier it is to have the block come out smaller and smaller. I've learned the hard way! :o)I really thought I was being careful with my 1/4" seams here, but am beginning to wonder if part of my problem might be my cutting. I think I need to work on a more accurate cutting out technique. I am also beginning to wonder if 'piecing' is really 'my thing', but I shall continue on with the next block Shoo Fly.

Hope all is having a good day!
