    These patterns are both fun and frustrating. I am a novice quilter and I love the challenge.

    Just realised there is a monochromatic link for Blocks 3-6 but I can’t find any link for Blocks 1&2. I may like to do that later.

      Hello Jeanie,

      I am sorry to hear that you are not able to print the pattern. I tested the pattern and was able to print is successfully. I would suggest refreshing your browser and trying to access the pattern again.

      Thanks,

    I’m working on block 6, page 3. What is the reason for not trimming block B and only trimming fabric F and E?

    I joined the challenge late. I was able to download Blocks 1 through 5 but have not received Block 6 via email. Where can I download the PDF file?

    Am finding the monochromatic pattern to have a few flaws with cutting of certain colors. Have had to cut extras of some colors and have had leftovers on some. I was able to work it out, but it was frustrating. I’m doing both quilts.

    Is there a file for corrections? I have printed my patterns and have not started yet, today is the day I am ready to cut but I keep reading about having wrong measurements on the FB page. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for the sew along, I sew enjoyed the last one too. Happy Sewing
