All Failed The Test!

I either included a test in the previous postings about the summer quilt, to see how many would catch the mistake, or more likely I made a bonehead mistake.  I'll let you all figger out which.  The dimensions of the larger white squares are not correctly posted.  They were posted as 10" x 10".  And if you peeked, you'd know that they were also cut at 10" x 10".  These white squares must alternate with the pieced squares.  What size are the pieced squares?  Well the color was pieced from five 2 1/2" strips.  After the five strips were sewn with a 1/4" seam they measure 10 1/2".  Thus one can easily see that they will not match up with 10" white squares.

My next quilt will use 10" white squares......
