How do you make the very center of each 16″ block in the Oh Little Star quilt?

LeAnn Keller

I have completed many of the Countdown patterns and have just finished the Twilight Flurries. This was a real challenge as there were so many errors in the patterns for cutting and directions. Blocks 4, 5,7,10,12,15,16,17,19,21,22,24,25. Quality control is important and needs to be evaluated when posting these blocks. Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback LeAnn! We regret that you’ve had so many frustrations using our patterns. I’ve passed along your feedback to our pattern editors so they can review those blocks. Thanks! -Emily
