    You don't need to cut 16 freezer paper templates as these can be used over and over again. You can cut a couple if you like to make sure you get them placed on the fabric so you can get all 16 cut out. I only used one template for my quilt. Glad to hear you are at the petal point!

    Hi , I am getting ready to cut my petals to put in between the Dresdens. Should I cut 16 templates from the freezer paper?

    Hi Monique, Thanks for reaching out. Your picture with the two pieces of paper butted together is correct. My template measures 14 1/4" from top to bottom. See pic in next post.

    I’m working on trimming the Dresdens, according to my measurements they should measure 14.5”. I have the pdf pattern and after taping the template sheets I come up short (‘first 2photos), third photo shows my adjustment, would this be correct? Thanks

    Yes, you should have plenty of fabric for cutting your center from the 3 1/2 yards you received for the optional kit. On Page 4 of the pattern it talks about splitting your yardage and then sewing it back together. You will have a piece that is about 86" x up to 63". This then gets cut down into a square - up to 63" x 63" (the pattern calls for a 60" square and you can make it a couple inches bigger if you want). You'll have plenty of fabric left over after trimming this into a square for making your center. Hope this makes sense!

    I am making the Winter Wreath into a quilt. Do I cut the center circle for the 12” compass from the background fabric that is in the optional kit? Will I have enough for the background? Thanks. I’m enjoying this project.

    Look at the table for the Round Sunflower blocks and for the yellow highlighted line that lists the finished center size. For example, an 18" Round Sunflower block has an 8.78" finished center. This means you could make an 8" Compass to put in the middle. Hope this helps! Lots of combinations are possible!

    If I make a different size compass, how do I figure out what size to make the companion compass block? Thank you.

    Thanks for your comment! Yes, lefties should make sure to read "Tips for Lefties" that I include on the last couple of pages of my Fat and Skinny Robin 16-Point instruction booklets. Glad the info was helpful!

    The brown paper is there to protect the rulers during manufacture. Start by picking at a corner to lift the paper off the ruler, and then slowly pull the paper off. It should come off in one big sheet.
