If you look at the January pdf file she gives a picture of her completed sample, a template is also in there in black and white that tell you the final size of each block (finished, not including the seam allowance). Laura identified the spacers and what size they each needed to be. She said that she was going to tell us another way to put it together as well. Since I have two little ones, I tend to procrastinate on the part of the project that takes the longest - quilting. I opted to do the design as she had it in the pdf file so I can have it done for Christmas this year.
