I bought this kit...

http://www.shopfonsandporter.com/pro...20SDE%20UP.htm

And Im short...literally one 5 7/8" block the large sunflower pattern by Ro Gregg, Ive been searching and cannot find a shop that has it, I think I was shorted a hair in the amount of fabric given, but I have no way to prove it because I did not measure it when I recieved, I know it was not cutting error because the scraps for this would never make a 5" block if all sewn together....so....I was hoping one of you had some I could purchase!!

Help me please!!

I believe they should make it right for you. If you contact them, please let us know if they stand by their kits.

Most of the time if you contact where you bought it they will replace what you didn't get. I would try and notifi them. Good luck.

My friend who owns a quilt shop has shorted people occasionally on a BOM and she immediately makes it right and cuts new fabric. I would definitely contact the owner and allow her to make it right and cut you some new fabric.

I agree with what the others say.
Sometimes errors are made and the company needs to admit to their mistakes. There should be no reason to measure the fabric you get in a kit. Everything should be there for you.

Pretty pattern :-D

I agree they should stand by their kits and make it right. I too would like to know if Fons & Porter will stand behind their products, please let us know.
