Hi Lori and Ellen,
Re-reading the cutting instructions, it seams that I can't count. You are quite right - the cutting instructions do not give you the correct number of pieces to finish 3 stars. This is what it should read:Fizz
O, OO and F are correct - you end up with 48 pieces, 16 for each block.LT
- you need to cut 3 strips
and then 16 pieces from each stripButtons and Blooms
22017 RED1 and BRO1
- you need a total of 48 pieces, 24 of each. So cut 2 strips of each color
- you need 16 pieces for each block, so cut 3 strips
(not just the 1 specified).
Checking, double checking, triple checking and having someone else make the quilt to check the instructions apparently does not catch all mistakes. Sorry about that!
