Cutting Tip

I thought I would cut the fabric today so I can work on what colours I will use for each block etc.

 I noted on page  7 on the "Diagram" - it doesnt illustrate the 7 x  1.5 " x 3.5" , so.... if you are being lazy like I was and looking at the diagram, dont forget to cut these extra pieces not illustrated.
