Where is the PP templates?

The “F” template for the North Carolina State Block is missing from the pdf file. Can you amend please? Thank you.


It says to join the 5 sections together. I only see four sections in the diagram.

Were the D and E pieces accidentally switched on the individual templates?

Also, I think it depends if you are working from the back of the block or the front. Thanks for the reply!
