Can you see how the template A is only along one side of the sewn strip?- well that is all that is used. The rest is wasted! I thought I must have read it wrong, and tried to use the other pieces as well, but it did not work at all.
I expect I could use some of these pieces to make the 1/2 "paperweights" needed for the sides of the quilt, but the rest does not work. So, today I have abandoned it again....temporarily.
The pattern is available https://au.pinterest.com/pin/16184879880648569/ so I have taken the step of ordering the pattern. I might be wasting my time and money, but thought perhaps the original pattern had been mis-interpreted by the magazine.
Any cleaver ideas out there, or has anyone else tried this pattern and found a solution?
PS I just thought I would have another go, and re-read the instructions. There are definite errors ie. each fabric for the centre needs a 4" x 24"piece, except that you have to cut it 2 1/2" wide - does not work. Will wait for my pattern to arrive.
