I think that there is a probably a typing error in this pattern.
On BLOCK #11 Hayes Corner this is what the pattern is saying for the Light Background.
If you see, it says cut 6 2inch x 1/2 inch rectangles...thats impossible!!!! Because...if you do a 1/4 inch seam...there would be nothing left of that 1/2 inch piece. Hehe. So I looked the pattern over and I believe that it is just a typing error and is supposed to say 2 inch x 3 1/2 inch rectangle.
If I am wrong...please let me know. I am going to be cutting out fabric to make this and was writing down what peices needed to be cut out of what fabric and that is how I found it.
7” x 15” rectangle Light Background, cut:
(6) 2” x ½” rectangles
(2) 2” x 5” rectangles
