Is the fabric requirement for the corners needed to make this hexagon a square missing or am I just not seeing it?

Thanks for the question, Susan! If you’re making the 50 States Quilt ( cut a 13″ background square, applique the hexagon blocks onto the background square, and then trim to 12 1/2″ square to turn the hexagon blocks into squares.
