There’s a mistake on the Quilt for an Hour cutting instructions. I’m so sorry! I really hate it when that happens and I try hard to make sure it doesn’t happen.
On the instructions, it says:
Cut 5 – 2-1/2″ strips. Cut these into 25 – 2-1/2″ x 9-1/2″ strips.
You’re not going to get 25 strips from those 5 strips. You’ll probably only get 20. Here are a couple of “workarounds”:
- Be real careful when cutting your 4-1/2″ squares from the 2 strips and you may have enough to get 2 more 2-1/2″ x 9-1/2″ strips from there.
- Be real careful when cutting your 3-1/2″ squares from the 3-1/2″ strip and you may be able to get 3 more 2-1/2″ x 9-1/2″ strips from there.
- You may just have to cut one more 2-1/2″ strip and cut the 2-1/2″ x 9-1/2″ strips from there.
Since I listed 2 yards as the requirements, there’s enough fabric to cut another 2-1/2″ strip if needed.
I can’t make changes on the Fabric Requirements page til I get home.
I’m so sorry for the mistake!
I haven’t cut my strips into segments yet (and i’m making one fewer rows of stars) so this works just fine for me.
Thanks so much for doing this for us Judy!!! You are the best!
Did i miss the cutting instructions or are they on the new Fabric Requirements that was posted. Sorry to be a pain…… thanks for the help.
