RB resting on a pile of quilts

I am doing a round robin quilt project (Ring on the side bar) and we are still building the base. So I had to add two pieces one that "finished 6x4" & on that "finished 7x4."
Everyone knows that you have to add .5 to each side to allow for seam allowances... Did I do that? Heck no (not the first time.)
Second example, I am doing the Spring doll quilt swap. The finished top needs to have sides that measures between 18 & 21 inches...
I just finished a Spring quilt that produced a nice spring pile of scraps... So I cut a bunch (60) 2 inch squares and 1 big square for the center. I was thinking 2x8=16 - add a border... (I again failed to think about the seam allowance - my top ended up to be about 12.5 inches square....
So I went back to the pile of scraps and this time cut 3 inch squares - hopefully that works better! :o)
My biggest fan, RB, is resting on a pile of quilts... Meow >^..^<
