Your first direction says to cut WOF a 6 1/2 strip but then cut that into 7 " squares. You can't make a 7" square out of a 6 1/2 " strip. Did you mean 7" wide strip?

If you could please add the missing cutting instructions I would appreciate it also, I just bought all my material and am now stuck !

The cutting instructions for the poinsettia on cream and the holly on black fabric are missing. It would be great if you could add these.

I absolutely LOVE this runner for more than just the holiday design, however, the cuts and fabric don't match us with the design. Its appears to be missing some fabric cuts and other cuts are not aligned with the fabric design. Think this one must have gotten mixed up when posting online. I am trying my best to figure it out as I so want to make this beautiful runner. Hoping someone can figure it out and post an update.
