  1. There is a cutting error in the bee block.
    At the head of the bee, the little blocks
    should be 1 inch square – not two inches
    square! Makes a big difference.

    1. Hi Kathi!
      I have checked the book, and for the corner squares on the head of the bee, it is Fabric H – 1.25″ squares. THe Fabric B – 2″ square is for the bee rear end (? stinger? LOL)
      Hope this helps!

        1. HI Kathi! We write our cutting instructions according to the sizes Lori Holt uses in her samples. If you like the look of the smaller size, you should absolutely use that for your block!
