    will the patterns continue to be available the entire time? I leave on a quilt cruise next week and won’t be available until the 19th. I can then catch up. Thanks. Jayne

    I’ve done several quilt alongs. I love the simple design of each block and how they each blend together.

    I would love to learn how to post pictures of my blocks to appear on fB. I photograph them with my phone and I have the ability to send them to fB, but they are only appearing on my page. Any suggestions?

    How do I get block 3? I am so frustrated trying to use this site, but am too stubborn to quit. Please advise how to find block 3.

    Are there directions on how much material it will take to complete all the blocks. I did a quilt once where they only gave you the pattern each month and I hate the way it doesn’t coordinate.

    Why isn’t block 7 added to this website? I received the first block via e-mail. Have had to try to locate all the rest. I need block 7 and cannot access it from facebook. I am dependent on my laptop right now.

    Hi, I am enjoying the challenge but have a problem with block 8, Alicyone, the first HST on page two using the measurements for B & F are given as 4 7/8” x 9 3/4” then square to 3 3/8”. Are these correct as I am having difficulty making the finished square.
