Those are wonderful. I have saved all the instructions. I am glad that I didn't try this one today. I have been feeling blah all day.

I think you missed something. There are 6 side triangles cut out of background fabric. To get those the directions say:
Cut 1 Strip 12 ½ x WOF
Sub cut 2 – 12 ½ x 12 ½ squares
Sub cut these in half on the diagonal both ways. This will give you 8 total triangles, we will be using 6 These are for the side triangles. I think the sub cut is the step you may have missed. the next step was to cut 2 6 1/2 squares from the remaining fabric and then cut them on the diagonal. That will give you 4 smaller triangles for the corners

You do need to make 6 block #2 and I see where your confusion is. You are supposed to label each set of blocks, no matter how many you make of that block, with the block number. So block #1 will have a label on each that say "block 1" Block #2 will have a label on all 6 that say Block 2 and so on.

Does that make since?

Sharon, I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised! When I first saw your color choices, I was not sure how the print would read, but it turned out very nice!

Looks good but blocks 6 & 7 need to trade places

Tell mom, the pattern is not right the way she has it, but if she likes it that way, its her quilt and her design choice
