    Signed up at Week 1, Week 2 should be out, but I don’t have an email about it and cannot access it on site, either. What am I doing wrong?

      Look under fabric requirements for past patterns. If you signed up and don’t get the email, look in your spam. Maybe this will help.

    I’m finding this confusing. Above says “Week 2” – this is actually the 3rd installment/clue. And the pattern page says “Block 1”. I thought the first clue was block 1. It says “Click button below … for week 1” … can someone PLEASE explain all this? Thanks, Terry PS-won’t submit without a website. Did not know this was required.

      Hello Terry,

      The first block was the center block and it was sent out in both the fabric requirements and week 1. We are now on week 2 of the challenge.

      Thanks,

        I finally figured out your system of naming/sending the blocks but it is confusing. You’ve got week 1, block 1 and part 1 all different.

    How many instruction blocks should I have? Was there a center block to begin with? I am confused.

      Hello Doris,

      We are on week 2. Week one was the center block so with this weeks block you should have 2 blocks.

      #6 is the main print and will become more of a focus further on in the design.

    I decided to make the smaller option of this quilt and bought the lesser amount of fabric. In reading the directions, I don’t see an option to make the pieces smaller to accommodate that choice. Am I overlooking something? I’m afraid if I go by these directions I’ll run out of fabric.

      Hi Dawn,

      The cutting and piecing instructions for both sizes of quilt are the same for the first few weeks. When a difference is needed to the smaller size it will be clearly noted in the pattern.

    This e-mail says week 2. if you read what it says below the heading, it sounds like the download button will get you week 1 again, but I actually got page 5 which is week 2

    Today, Nov 1, I just signed up to receive the emails. I went to the links below. I was able to download the fabric requirements. But, Week 1 download only has page 3 and 4. Week 2 only has a page 5 BUT it says block 1 at the top. Already I’m not having fun!
