Corrections for Blattwork quilt:

When cutting out the templates, you must flip the template to the other side when cutting the second piece to get two mirrored pieces. If the template isn’t flipped one ends up with halves of leaves which are all right or left, and one cannot make whole leaves of them. There will be 10 pieces in the shape of the template, not 9 as asked for in the instructions of the book. See image below.
