    I am new to do anything like this and I am nervous to do anything like this. I hope that I don’t disappoint myself.

    Don’t understand your fabric requirements. What size? What kind or color? I guess I just don’t understand what you mean on this. Thank you.

      Hi Bernie!

      Great question!

      The fabric listed in the requirements has plain colours listed but if you want to use patterns, that’s okay too!

    I, too, am having problems with the fabric requirements. I see the requirements for 2 blocks. Are we going to get different requirements each week?

        Thank you Joan. I understand each week makes two blocks total whether swapping or going solo. However, the fabric requirements are only enough for week 1. Will there be new requirements for week 2, 3,
        etc?

    I tried to sign up, but have not received an email. Do I need to do something other than submit my email address?

    Were the pattern templates posted somewhere. I am late on this and would love to still do it. My Mom and sister quilt, but I have not done any piecing as of yet. I would love to do this one.

    I have enjoyed seeing how the basic pattern develops into the varied blocks. I have done each of my blocks with different fabrics within the same color scheme. I have F to complete and then I’ll do the other two this next week. I really like the finished results.

    Oh, I meant to say I do not have a partner. I’m doing the quilt myself for a granddaughter. I just use half the material requirements.
