Mistake in Part 7?

Hi all,

I've been cutting the squares and stripes for part 7 of Natures Journey. The cutting guide tells me to cut four 2 1/2" stripes for the outer border.
Nr. 4 of "To Make" states that I should sew a 2 1/2" x 27 1/2" at each side of the top and a 2 1/4" x 28 1/2" strip to the top and base of the quilt. It's 2 1/2" for the top and base, too, isn't it?!?

CONFIRMED WITH ANNI it should be 2 1/2" x 28 1/2" (not 2 1/4)

I noticed that too but just went ahead leaving it at 2.5". I guess we will know for sure when we add the next boeder....

I'm with Susan, I've left my borders both with 2 1/2in and will see how they fit on the next border...don't want to cut them and find I shouldn't have.
