I also purchased this pattern but there are no instructions for fabrics or what size the quilt is or how to cut and assemble this.
It's the piece by number; Octagonia Paper Pieced Quilt Block

Hi Vicki! Thank you for your purchase of the Octagonia block pattern!

Please note that, like most of my pattern designs, this is specifically a quilt BLOCK pattern, not a complete pattern to create a particular finished quilt. My block patterns don't include yardage amounts, because they're designed for quilters to enlarge or reduce the blocks for their specific projects. Since I have no idea how many blocks a quilter will be making or at what size, it's not feasible to include accurate fabric requirements.

If you are simply making one 12" finished size Octagonia block, 1/4 yard of each of the colors would be sufficient (by quite a long way, but 1/8 yd may not be quite enough for the 2 main colors of the interlocked octagon figure). If you will be making multiple Octagonia blocks for your project, I suggest making a single block at your desired size and keeping careful track of your fabric usage as you go. Then you can multiply these amounts by the number of blocks you'll be making to get your overall required yardage.

The pattern does contain instructions on how to resize the foundation patterns to whatever size you need for your individual project, and also how to assemble the paper pieced units to create the finished blocks.

I hope this helps and thanks again!
