Could not figure it out at all. The photograph does not look at all like the fabric that I received. For a newbie project it was a lot of tiny stitching and measuring. I had more success with the charm pack making coasters and a patchwork pillow. The rest of the project was a bust for me and I could not complete it without calling my neighbor (quilter) constantly. She does not mind but I do. I would prefer a replacement if possible, if not I guess I will put it away until I figure out what the heck I'm supposed to do with it.
The second project is a lot easier and looks like more fun.
I'm so sorry that you are having trouble completing the tablerunner! While not all of the monthly kits are newbie oriented, I do try to have patterns with easy to understand directions. I've reached out to you privately to make it up to you.
