Lynne Thanks petty much doing that but was not marking the pieces went back and tryed that and thats going to work, just need to do as Babara said using a scant 1/4 seam.Maryam of course I had allready cut out all the quilt and Pam now that I've got one made I'll have have that glass of wine

Don't stop breathing, Ann, they are really quite simple. As Lynne explained, the secret is stoping that 1/4", better a thread or two bigger than too scant.  You only have the one where A and C meet. I like to sew from the outside edge toward the area where all will meet and back stitch at the 1/4" place.

I suggest a new pattern and a bottle of wine!!! Good luck...can't wait to see the results.

Ann, when doing set-in seams. You have to stop sewing your 2 C units at the 1/4 inch mark. Doesn't hurt to backstitch once at the joint where A will be placed. Then pick one side,,, sew A piece stopping at the 1/4 inch seam allowance. Rotate A unit to the other C unit and placing needle down at the 1/4 inch mark of the C units. Best bet would be to mark on the wrong side of these pieces, C & A, the 1/4 inch seam,, joining the mark at the corner. Hope this helps.

Ann, does the fabric for C need to be one piece?  what if you make your c/d as HSTs and then add a seperate HST for the other pieces of your c?  What size does this unit need to be? (HST = Half Square Triangles)

OR you could make your A in 2 triangles rather than break up your C....if you do that just add 3/8" to your square A dimension and cut in half diagonally
