Thank you so much - I have posted the question regarding this - but no reply as yet ! Take care !

Thanks again for organizing this, Dotty. I'm looking forward to it, wherever we land. March 13 sounds like a good start date to me. I think I have identified some background fabric and then I will dip into my stash for the rest. I may not be able to keep up with the group, but I'll give it a whirl. I have a lot of projects I'm trying to work on this year.

on the fence about getting the kindle version or hard copy. I bought SBS digital version, and it came with a link to download all the templates and that worked well. Only problem was that the settings on my tablet need to be adjusted so it stops going to sleep after 5mn of not touching it.

I'd prefer several blocks a week. In looking at them, they don't seem too hard. When I did the 365block challenge that was a block a day, and that did get to be a bit much to keep up on. I normally tried to do the 7 for the week on the weekend.

I might be kind of weird, but I really like doing several blocks at one time. I cut them all and then sew what I can until I need to press for each block, then press them and trim, and then go to the next round.

Assigning 1 block a week and inviting everyone to do more sounds perfect to me. I know that as we progress more
and more people will have already done the assigned block, but they should be able to choose a couple more. I'm
going to set up a spreadsheet for myself, so I can keep track of the blocks I have done. Linda

I have prepared all the foundation papers ahead of starting - so can just go to the block I want to make. I will post so many each month and am looking forward to seeing further blocks you might want to choose yourself !

Hi, That sounds good to me ! On page 85 of the book there is a page to mark off the blocks as you go if that is any help !

I have made my first block and would like to share a photo of it with you ! A1 - Air Castle and I am quite pleased with it. I wish to be completely honest with you in that am not a lover of Applique and I will make different blocks in their place. I will still assign those blocks though for those of you happy to make them. Forgive me !!

Anxiously waiting for my book. "Out for delivery by 9PM." If the blocks are labeled, A1 etc. We can either do them by number or location. Do whatever you think it best. I'm all in. Found my neutral and I'm pulling brights. I'll use the colors in the blocks for color placement on the competed top. As luck would have it, it was in the Amazon warehouse in the next state.

Lovely - bet you can't wait. Yes the blocks are all labelled from Row A to Row J and I will also put the page number as well !! Your colour choice sound great !
