  1. Can you please tell me how big the middle piece is. I have never seen those pretty cute in NZ

  2. When I printed out the free pattern for the short cut jelly belly bars quilt pattern, there were no instructions for assembling the quilt or the different sizes that could be made and how to make them. I have looked thru all of your sites and still can’t find what would be page two to the pattern. I have the first page which shows the cutting instructions for a 54 1/2 x 60 quilt and how to assemble the blocks. Can you help me?
