  1. I got lost along the way! but found this site to get what I missed.
    I now have 7 blocks done, and will finish the rest this week.
    Thanks a bunch!!!

  2. I it has been interesting to see such different blocks designed with the same fabrics
    and each a small quilt in itself. My take-away experience is a lesson in color and design, which I thoroughly enjoyed, some new quilting tips and eight completed blocks. Thanks to everyone involved for making the past few weeks very enjoyable. I look forward to the big reveal next Friday.

  3. Hi, Lisa,
    I am late getting started on the sewalong and wondered if there was a PDF version of block 5? If there is, I couldn’t find it. Your help would be appreciated!
