If you fall behind, you can purchase the CD. If you have purchased a kit, you have be provided with (17 1/3 yds of colored fabrics and 8 yards of back ground fabric) to be used on each month’s block and block border. You have the options of using white, grey or black as your back ground fabric.
Please label the fabric according to the fabric chart that is included with the first month’s pattern. The cutting instructions will ask you to cut border strips first and set aside for future months. Once you have followed the cutting directions for the block and block border strips, set aside the remaining fabric for future use. All seams are 1/4”, and pressing directions are indicated with an arrow. Seams that can be pressed in either direction are indicated with a double arrow.
