    Nope, not going to the LQS today ..... will be atleast Thursday, and if not Friday, for sure Saturday .... so you'll be back in plenty of time!

    Yeppir I was a latecomer for FWS. Only joined the Board in April, and soon after read about FWS. Being that I was a FW, it kept calling me!!!!!!!! I just HAD to do it. Did a few blocks in June, then nada til fall. Now trying to go full steam ahead as would really like to have all blocks done before the end of the year. 56/111 are now done .... so I may not make it, but would sure like to, as I want to start Pony Club and doing FWS blocks at the same time!!! There's several others that are in the early stages who are posting to the threads as they complete a pair or more .... so please do come on over and join in on those threads!

    Ok ladies, you have to keep me motivated, I'm quite the girl for my head becoming easily turned by a newer and prettier fabric.

    Help I'm kind of stuck on the Part 2 step, I have the two strips sewn to Fabric 1 what length are you cutting the sections into it says 3 X 8? that doesn't give me enough sub cuts. What measurements did you do for your subcuts?

    I don't see why they wouldn't have you tried going to their website to see if you can order it from them directly we only started this month so plenty of time to catch up.

    As suggested already, do send them an email. The designer is very "close" to her business, and chances are you will get a lovely personal email with the info you need. One of the other posters is in the USA, and has done these BCS mysteries before, so with that, we know that they do deal with the USA. Or perhaps she'll deal directly with you, and email the directions each time. YOu have nothing to lose by asking!

    Oh dear! Sorry you're having problems. And hope that any instructions I give you here are correct! On the plus side, I picked up Clue #2 yesterday, and took my first set of sewn pieces to my LQS for show and tell ... and she didn't go OMG, you did it all wrong. So I'm thinking this will be correct.

    For step 2 ... you have three strips 3" x WOF. So when you sew them together, they become 8" x WOF. Then you chop them off at 3" intervals, which gives you the 3"x8" sizes. I stopped once I got to the required 12, which then left me a piece 8" x approx 6" (depends on the original WOF).

    Hope this helps ... and look forward to seeing your results!

    I think we are like two peas in a pod!! I call it, Quilters ADD ... as I can oh so easily flit from one fabric project to the other. Thus, I stash of WIPS, UFOs and PhDs!

    I'll nudge you ... show us your stuff, please YukonLady. I now have Clue #2 .... we'll see if I stick with FWS this weekend? or take a break and work on this "big" stuff!
