Block size

Hello ladies.. just wanted to point out.. if you do a patched block.. please make sure your finished blocks are
12 1/2 inches in size.. it's easier to trim off fabric than put back on a 1/2 inch... 
I do not square up my blocks.. I send them out a little over sized. That way they can be trimmed prior to sewing together.. The blocks unravel when handled...That way through handling and shipping...They will still be 12 1/2 inches after trimming..... when its time to put them together.. Just a little food for thought .. Thanks M
