RE block size
Suzan, the finished Propeller Blocks should measure 10 1/2" from raw edge to raw edge. If yours are smaller, it may help to check your seam may be a bit too big. If you continue to have problems, please email us at and one of our editors will help you out!
block size
When I make the propeller block they end up 10 x 10 before I put the quilt together. Is anyone else having this problem??
