    The two sections go to get her to make one fourth of the circle. Right?

            I am confused about the cutting instructions for the large, 3" x 8" pieces for each color. According to the instructions I should have 4 light and 4 dark. I make all of one piece and then go on to piece #2. But as I read the instructions for piece # 1 steps 6 & 7, I use a large piece of each color. If I make 4 of piece #1, I've used all 4 of each color before I start piece #2. The same happens with piece #2. Am I reading something incorrectly? It's important to me because I have a very limited amount of my light color.

              I cut all my pieces at the beginning and found I only had enough of some of the pieces for half the circle, so had to cut more. Like you, I was restricted on how much light fabric I had so had to re-think a bit!

                Ditto, here. I am using my own fabrics for this BOM and, fortunately, have plenty of extra fabric to cut more. I am curious, though, if the three of us misread the cutting directions or if there was an error in the cutting directions. Aside from this slight snag, I am thoroughly enjoying this BOM and am already looking forward to the March pattern & instructions for Houses #3 and #4

                  The cutting instructions are accurate. In both my blog and the Month 2 video I explained the 8”x 3” pieces, 4 light, 4 dark, are used for piece F, the large colored piece on each wedge—there are 8 wedges. All the remaining points are made from the smaller pieces, 6” x 2”, 12 light, 12 dark.

                    I find that using a small piece for "e" rather than a large piece works for me. I will have 4 large pieces of my light for all the "f" in piece #2.

                      Thanks, Barb. Although I DID watch the video, I somehow missed that part.

                        I now believe the cutting instructions are accurate but in my opinion step 6 that states to use a large piece for "e" is inaccurate. A small piece works just fine.

                          Libbi, that was an error in the instructions. The Large pieces are only for piece F.

                            Is there enough fabric in our quilt kit that we can make the compass a rainbow compass from the kit fabric, or will I need to match up as best as I can from my stash to have the rainbow compass? The blues are pretty, but I am just not a monochromatic compass person. Thank you in advance!

                              Yes, there is enough, the rainbow colors don’t use a lot of fabric.
