Looks like I will be short as well. How disappointing. Is this going to happen through the project?

Thanks for your answer. I figured it out. Looks like everything needs to be right side up for the first 2 cut pieces.

Thought you were paper piecing?

Kelly, I did paper piece mine, but did the first set according to the written instructions to see how it worked.

This old dog was trying a new trick! :wink:

The instructions say to cut 2 - 18" x width of fabric of both the orange and turquoise dot fabric. Does this mean I need two pieces 18" X 45" or 2 pieces 18" X 22.5". The only reason I ask is that there isn't enough of the Turquoise dot fabric to cut 2 18" X 45". After washing it and straightening for cutting it I'm about 2 " short. I bought the kit.

Donna, I have checked with Alex and we will get back to you ASAP! Sorry for the trouble!
You will need 2 pieces of each fabric 18" x WOF and because of shrinkage when fabric is washed, we loose some yardage.
Go ahead and piece what you can with the fabric you have available and let us know how much you are short.

Kellyls, you just need to make sure that the angle of the cut matches the angle in photo 4 with the right side of the fabric facing up.
The directions say to cut with the 18" side facing you, but I am right handed, and to make the cut at that angle, I had to work with the 42" side of the fabric closest to me.
Photo 5 also shows the right side of the fabric facing up.
Photos 7,8 and 9 show the wrong side of the fabric facing up so the angle looks backward.

Is the first cut supposed to be made on the wrong side of the fabric - looks like it from the photos - doesn't say it in the directions. Except says to make sure the turquoise is facing right side up. Anyone already cut?
