I have had a number of questions regarding the cutting instructions for the sickle block. I think the problem is that it is a little bit difficult to see that within the large 4-patch there is a smaller 4-patch.
So, yes, dahlink, the cutting instructions are correct.
You are making a very small 4-patch; then you are making a larger one.
Please take another look at the picture and see if that makes sense.
Oh, and we spent last night at my daughter's and got to spend time with Ryan. Here he is contemplating his dinner...note he has another Elmo placement for his house, too!
Love to you all,
