I first found this quilt in one of your e-books. The cutting requirements are different than what is listed above. In the e- book it calls for 12-21/5 half square triangles of white, but in the green fabric it calls for 12- 2" half square triangles. Are their errors in both places( here and the e-book, or am I missing something? I am a novice quilter, I would really like to sew this for my grand-daughter, but I am a little confused.

Hi Marlene! I checked in with one of our editors on staff who has actually made this quilt and she says the measurements here are correct. If you could please let us know which eBook you found the error in, we will update it. Thanks! Kaylee, Editor

I have a quick question about the cutting requirements for this quilt that I would love to make for my gran-daughter. In the cutting for the white material it calls for 12- 2 " half sqaure triangles as well as green. These 2" squares are sewn together to make the pickets for the fence. The directions call for these to be sewn onto the 4 1/2 " square. Am I missing something here, to me 2-2" half square triangles sewn together would be less than 4". How can these pieces be joined together.
