    Hey y'all, I found a fellow quilter on youtube who is doing the QAL. I had questions about the star just like some of y'all have had. https://youtu.be/USm3nU7hewc?si=lIw-z8U9QH7bDcpl She is using offwhite is the background and black for the contrast.

    Two questions: Is there a week 4 tutorial video with Colleen? In the directions for week 4 - is the center block light or dark?

  8. becky Hermanson

    Question on the directions: First page shows center square as dark, but second page full star shows center as light. Which way should it be?

  9. Connie

    Was there week 4 tutorial?
