The next size up

I was Wondering....
 
What if I began with 6" squares
instead of 5" charm squares like my last quilt??
 
Found out....
It's Fiddly.
I ended up trimming my scrappy 2 1/2" squares to 2 3/8".
Not sure I want to do that for a whole quilt.
????
 
I've never been of FAN of any 1/8th inches!!!
 
I have a hard enough time with 1/4 inches!!!
 
We'll see.
I DO want to use some 6" scrappy squares.
And...
I DO have a FEW.....(cough, cough..sputter, sputter...)
 


Here's a little more info on the above block.
Mostly 2 3/8" squares
plus 2 3/8"x4 1/4" creams
 
Make TWO of these.
Trim to 6".
 
Find two 6" scrappy squares.
 
Then...
Add 2 3/8"x 6" sashing
with a small 2 3/8" square right in the middle!!!
