I want to make a bears paw quilt for my son. I have made myself confused with the HSTs.
I looked at this pattern.....
but there seems to be a discrepancy in the claws.....especially when you look at this pattern, where all the measurements are the identical.....except the initial square for the claws. (2 7/8 vs 3.5)
The unsewn HST block needs to be 2.5", (2 inch block plus 1/4 seam allowance). So is this what you would add your 7/8ths to? making an original square of 3 3/8ths ? which would make the second link correct (albeit a tad generous)
or do you take the mesurement of 2inch block plus 7/8ths? in which case the former link is correct.
