October 1998’s block was an Ohio Star.
The finished block measures 9 inches square (9 1/2 inches unfinished).
Your finished (unfinished) block should measure 9 1/2 inches. Be sure to leave the seam allowance on the block, DO NOT cut it to the nine inch finished size -- as the “finished” measurement represents the block size after it is sewn into a quilt top.
