Vague instructions
I guess "improv" should have been a big hint. I can't find the finished block size anywhere on the pattern. I've emailed the author but no response.

I think this is probably a great pattern for an experienced quilter with more confidence, but I was hoping for more detailed instructions regarding sizes, how to square up each block before it's pieced, etc.
