Grrr....

I decided to make another tablerunner, one from this pattern, which says "Runners designed for 5"charm squares".
Great, I thought, don't have a lot of time, nice and easy, hardly any cutting.
Well , first instruction is to cut all the charm squares down to 4 1/2" charm squares!!
So why didn't it just say you need 4 1/2" squares not 5" ones!
I am assuming that it is a marketing ploy as they know us quilters love our 5"charm square packs!
So while I love this pattern and it came together really easily (after all the cutting), please take note Ms Tablerunner Designer, please be honest next time and put the REAL requirements on the pattern packet.
That is all.
