See the blue strip under the dolls and the house? It's:
2 1/4" of whatever to fill the space all across the row.
It continues all across the whole row to under the Liberty guy, pineapple, etc. You fill in with whatever left over pieces and things you want. I believe that the pattern gave us the drawing for the little hst portion under Liberty guy, and the flying geese under the house. Once I get my hand sewing done, I'm gonna put the row together and sew on the strip, so I thought I would share!
