Click HERE to print a clean Director’s Dream Instruction Sheet.
Click HERE to download and print the Director’s Dream Foundation Pattern.

**You will want to Download the file and then print the .pdf file.  When you print, make sure that scaling is turned off enabling the document to print at 100%.  Take a moment to measure.  The Solid Line along the bottom edge of section F should measure 3".  If you print directly from the Google Docs screen you might come out with a slightly smaller sized block.**

Don't forget to come back and post the link to your blocks so I can see them.  I LOVE to see them!!  Don't have a blog or don't have time to post?  Just email me a picture and I'll get it uploaded.  I’ve also set up a Flickr Group if you’re interested!

Loved doing this block! Well, till I started piecing it together - but that was my fault.

I love the new layout of the blog. Have loads of fun with you retreat!!

Is there an instruction sheet besides the clean instruction sheet and the Foundation Pattern? I am having trouble piecing A7 to A 6 as they are different sizes.

I’m bummed you don’t have an email address to reply to. There is not an additional instruction sheet. I just took a look at the sizes of the pieces. The A7 is 1-1/2 x 5-1/2 so it should be very much long enough to not have to worry about it’s placement. Please email
Me at I’d be happy to make a mock up and send you a picture.
