Note to self - stop skim reading instructions

Remember that link I gave yesterday to the wonky star tutorial? I do not know if the update was added to the tutorial before or after I read it - but I am willing to bet that it was there and I skimmed right over it missing some vital info. Check out these pics and you will see what I mean.
Can you see the issue? I did not at first- I just happily sewed the rest of the squares so proud of myself for doing something new!
Do you see what it says in the Updated note - all in capitals that I obviously did not read.
As you can see, this does not make the full 4.5" square I am to cut it down to.
 Serves me right for not reading the whole post!
Thank goodness Tiffany sent enough fabric for me to recover from my little mishap! Don't worry Tiffany - you will get a completed block very soon! I should have this corrected and sent to you by tomorrow.

PS - Have you entered my give away yet? It is still open, click here to get your name in! I will be drawing a winner on March 20th after 12pm (noon) MST. Good Luck!
The pattern is available for sale as well if any one is interested, it is $5 and for sale at Etsy, click here to check it out.


  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who misses important information in the instructions! Glad there was still enough fabric for you to work with.

  2. The same thing happened to me - but on more then one point! However, it was with my own fabric so I had lots. I just made them smaller and had to re-design the block I am going to send. Mine was for a block swap so no particular design.

  3. I've entered and bought the pattern (as all people should!!!).

    URG. How frustrating is that????

  4. Just went to your Etsy site, it looks great. Good luck.
