Alternative size

Each nine patch consists of four 5.75" picture squares arranged as shown, four 5.75 x 4.25" oblongs and a centre 4.25" square.
Seven ninepatches are needed to make a quilt and there will be spare pieces. I prepared seven kits consisting of the ninepatch pieces and an extra oblong and centre square which were joined and cut in half lengthways to form 2.125" (two and one eighth inch) strips. I trimmed the sashing post fabric 1.775" (one and seven eighths) away from the seam line and used one of the cut off 2.125 (two and one eighth inch) squares for the final corner sashing post. These units completed the sashing.
