PUZZLE TIME!!!

I had to work out a "puzzle" on this month's Schnibbles----I read the directions and started cutting out the print blocks---only I could not get the "second" set of 1 3/4" by 1 3/4" blocks out---we cut 2 strips for the border and 2 3" squares--so I am "thinking'(here was really the problem--me thinking!!!!) that we where making 2 blocks out of the same fabric print---Little sister shows up--so I show it to her and we try one and again --can not get the second smaller set--so I get on the computer and am in the process of emailing someone who has already done the top--when little sister says--I found the answer here on the back of it---you are only making ONE block so you only need one set of the small squares---Guess what---that made a LOT of sense to me--in the end----
Then I am actually on the last block and am nearly done---WHEN---I find the one block that I thought I had put in the trash bin==because of this--
See the "flaw" in the fabric---ouch---BUT I was a good girl and I did redo this one corner block--
See NO flaw----
Block looks much much better now---
And here is the finished top part---now to decide what I want to do with the borders???
Can anyone tell me the name of the charm packs I used---might be a "surprise" in it if you guess right!!!!
The birthday party over on my other site is still in full "swing" so swing over and have a piece of cake and sign in for the drawings!!!
