Embroidery 101 ... Blocks construction

Today I continue to share my journey in following the
 Embroidery 101 Quilt Along...

7th June... I start cutting the fat quarter fabric,
but I don't cut all the fabric.
  For today I cut only for a block and I start sew it since
 I was so excited to see the result.
 So this is my first block that I've contructed and sewed. 
The finished size of the block is 171/2"...arggghhh  it turn out
to be smaller by 1" ?? where has it gone wrong..
upon checking I realize that I'm using
 the 3"x121/2" for the inner square
and the outer square I used the fabric size 181/2"
As of today 10th June...
I've completed sewed five blocks(and all  turn out to be
 in the  same size 171/2")
and I still have another 4 blocks to finish. 
Now I am getting excited to do the embroidery...
which was the main reason  I join this quilt along. 
I love embroidery... really looking forward to it ...
counting the days to start with the 1st block.  
Happy Sewing!
