  1. The measurement for the batting pocket piece seems to be incorrect. 5-1/4″ x 6 3/4″ is not large enough for a 9″ X 11 1/2″ pocket. Shouldn’t it be 8-1/2 X 6 3/4″ ?

    1. Hi Julie,
      Sorry, actually the pocket size should be 7″ x 11.5″, not 9″ x 11.5″. So the batting sizes are actually correct. Thanks for letting me know about the typo, it’s fixed now.
