Wow, some of you are working fast on the Henrietta quilt.  You already have your backgrounds pieced!  I’m really amazed!  For the rest of you please remember the general instructions are just that…general.    You’ll get the exact cutting directions every month with each block.  Don’t feel like you need all the backgrounds pieced at once.  You can do them as you go along.

Because some of you are such super fast quilters we’ve caught 3 mistakes in the General Directions for Henrietta Whiskers.  Henrietta is so glad you took the time to email me!  She’s driving me crazy because every time she sees an email with her name in it she gets really excited!   I’ve got to get her out of the studio!

If you’d like a corrected copy of the General Instructions just click on “free” from this blog or my website.  If you’d like to update the ones you have here are the corrections:
