Mystery Cutting steps

Here is the cutting instructions to start the first step which will come late tomorrow or saturday. I'm putting the cutting instructions for each step to make things a little easier to keep up. So you don't get confused and neither do I.

Strips are cut across the width of the fabric, making them about 42" long ( after you remove the salvage)

Fabric #1 ( Light)
cut 10 2 1/2" strips
Fabric #2 (Medium or 2nd accent piece)
cut 14 2 1/2 strips
Fabric #3 ( accent fabric or dark)
cut 2 6 1/2 strips then cut these into 32 Pieces that measure 2 1/2 x 6 1/2"

If your doing scrappy you will have to wait to cut and piece your strips/squares when we start piecing. Which is the next step. But a hint in fabrics one and two if your doing scrappy break out your 2 1/2 squares. :-)

Enjoy your evening~~~Remember to put your name in a comment section.

Hey Carolyn is that 3rd fabric right? It states to cut 26 1/2 inch strips and then cut them into 32 pieces that measure 6 1/2 by 2 1/2...
Should this be different or am I reading it wrong?

Well duh.............I take it to mean 2 6 1/2 inch wide strips the width of the fabric?????

I should not read when I cannot see...sorry for any confusion but at first read it did not sound right to me.

And NO it's not the blonde in me...
