Hello Everyone.....

I am sewing two 4 1/2" square triangles together and cutting them to get 2 half square triangles. Each should be 3-7/8" square including the seam allowance. I have done it twice and I am not even close to it be 3-7/8. I have checked and made sure I am using a 1/4" seam. Does anyone have any suggestions? I guest I could cut the original square a little bigger and then size it down, but I would rather go by the instructions and not have to adjust every cut.
