Conifer

Conifer! Conifer! Conifer! I had this idea to make pine cones last year when I put together the Gremlin’s Christmas stocking. When I started it, the strips were too tiny, you couldn’t see the fabric, and I was worried it looked like piles of (reindeer poop). I also didn’t have it separated out into blocks;

Yonder Correction

On the Cutting table under the Sashing section, there needs to be an additional bullet point: 3 strips 24½” Rows 19, 20, and 21 will have the 24½” sashings. This means you will need to cut an additional 2 strips 1½” x width of fabric. On the Cutting table under Background Column for Row 7,
