    Hi there,

    So my first block is measuring 8 1/4 x 8 1/4 instead of 8 1/2. Is this a total disaster or can I adjust subsequent blocks to make it work?
    I rechecked my measurements and the only thing I can figure is misinterpretation of the word ” scant:.

    Did any one else have this problem?

    In the instructions for week 3 twin size, there is no mention of cutting 2 1/2 x 4 1/2″ rectangles. Page 2 Mountain Block (4) says we will be making the remaining flying geese using the 1 at a time method . Make 2 of each color combo: 2 Color A – 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 ” rectangles and 4 Color B 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 ” squares. Why was this left out? This block is already confusing as it is and to not include the correct cutting information is a crime.

      How many rectangles do we need to cut for 8 mountains for the twin size? How many for each color?

        It has been one week since trying to get the correct information about sewing colors together. I was told it would take 24 to 48 hours, well, never heard from you about corrections. Look at Week 3 # 7, 8 and 9 has instructions different than the diagram. So will ask again and hope to get a response of correction ASAP.
