    I'm curious if anybody else is doing the March Fab Shop Hop. I've gone through all of the shops from S through Y--35 shops. I've found almost all of the bunnies, but I haven't uncovered a single quilt block. Pretty discouraging to say the least. I'm wondering if anybody has found any of the blocks. I'm starting to wonder if there's some malfunction. Any input would be appreciated.

    Sounds odd. Are you expecting to see them in the shops? They appear when you register to win. You can check in the member area under visited shops to see if any of them appear.

    Yes, I just checked. Nada. Not a single block found. I just found two more bunnies, but still no blocks! Very discouraging. I'm going to give up for a while, but I would have expected to find at least ONE by now for all my effort! I'll keep looking. I just wonder if anybody has found any. If nobody is finding any, maybe it would be worth an email. Things have gone wrong before.

    I haven't started this one yet. Certainly sounds unusual.

    The blocks are basic, so I'm not wanting to do this quilt. Less interest for me this month, for sure.

    I've went through 16 shops and never found any blocks either! I am getting discouraged too! Thinking about not doing this one either!

    Okay . . . I think there's a problem. I'm going to email the shop hop people and ask them what's up.

    I don't use their list. I click on the 'shops not visited' link and hop from there.

    So far I have found 39 Bunnies and 8 blocks. They're there, you just haven't hit the right shops yet. I also just start at the top of the list. :-D

    Maybe I need to move to the top. I've found all the bunnies from "s" to "y" and still not a single block! Almost 40 bunnies--no blocks.

    I always start at the top & work my way down. I have so far found 4. I got to #37 & had to leave. I never start like they say. Sure is pretty, hope to make. Last hop I went thru 75 shops & never found a single one. I finally finished with 15 blocks though.

    I've done 143 shops and have 19 of the blocks. That's all that are available until later in the month I think.

    Are you talking about last months hop? I have all the different patterns just not the recipes. I did all 157.

    This is the March hop. Under the member page it shows the blocks that are available.

    I found a block in the W or X section as my last name starts with a W. It looks like a nice set of blocks too. I was thinking blues and yellows maybe. I looked it up Guidelines4Quilting was the place for a star.

    I found 53 bunnies before I found the first block. Now I've found 57 bunnies. One block to show for all that. A little ridiculous, IMHO. I feel like I deserve a run on the blocks now.

    I have 7 so far & will finish the rest today I hope. There is only 12 patterns that I can see & at end of month they will give out how to put it all together.

    I think something is wrong this month. It downloaded duplicates which it has never done before.

    The blocks apparently move around too. I've had varied luck in past hops - sometimes I'll find a block every fifth bunny and sometimes I'll got 20,30,40 bunnies before finding a block.

    Cheers, K

    When you download make a PDF file in your documents & title it March shopshop then it should open back up to it & if you have a duplicate it will tell you.
