**Note - if you ordered a kit we are so sorry if you
 have not received it yet. We should have all kits in
the mail by the end of week. There was such an
overwhelming response we are waiting for more
fabric to arrive. Thank you again for your
continued support.


  1. What a treat to open my Google Reader and find the first step to this project.

    Thank you!

  2. I agree with Nancy! Thanks for the great tutorials that you do!!

  3. Thanks you so much Sheryl! This first block is adorable and the instructions are very clear. One question - I know you'll be posting a new block each Thursday in March. Are we only making one of each block for this mini? Thanks again. I LOVE that you do this! :-)

  5. I have been so looking forward to another quilt along - thanks so much.
    I was just wondering if we need 3 small squares of the light fabric?
