  1. Hello Jessica,
    While I did not “quilt along” with your Odette quilt, I am making it now and very much enjoying your pattern! I am using a red, white and blue color palette. I am up to block 18. The cutting instructions say to cut the small squares at 3 1/2”, but the assembly instructions refer to 2 1/2” squares. Can you clarify? (I could guess but don’t want to get it wrong!) Thank you so very much for publishing such a fun pattern!

    1. Hi Deb,

      I'm glad you are enjoying sewing the Odette quilt! Thank you for mentioning this. The squares should be 2 1/2". I made the correction on the page. However, if you wanted, 3 1/2" squares would work ok there too! Thanks!
