    Well I took Dellareya's advice and just wrote to the company. Let's see how they respond!

    Good for you, as a novice quilter I'd look at something like that and lament that I'd wasted $8.00.

    One reason I also gave up on poorly written patterns was because of cost. I had way too many that wouldn't work,both for blocks & tote bags.One of my pet peeves is a quilt pattern that doesn't give block component sizes.I like to measure as I go....or need to that is.Now,I'm liberated.The patterns on line can be read,saved/not saved.....for free. There are more on line than I could ever make, so not buying patterns anymore !!!!!!

    Yes I am going to have to do that - if I tried from their directions, I would NEVER be able to make the block! Trouble is, without the overall dimensions, I am going to have to guess, or use graph paper to figure it out. This is ridiculous - we pay the money to make these and then can't! What UP with that????
