    I have a question in order to answer your question - when you sew the three strips together and are not left @ 6.5", what are you left with? Are you over or under? By how much?

    The advice here is all fantastic if you are ending up at less than 6.5". If you're over that, then the adjustments are a little different.

    I had this issue consistently with 2.5” strips. I measured, pressed, opened, measured again. I finally realized the pinked portion of the strip was what threw me off. I finally figured that into my seams, and *voila* it worked!
