  5. X is the block you kiss when you are finished.
    M means you can mess this one up.
    C- 50 is the center and with blindfolds on you have a 50/50 chance of finding it.
    P 50 is the pass block.

  10. I’m a brand new quilter with a brand new Pfaff Powerquilter 16.0. I realized that your Mystery Quilt was the way I better go, since you ask for specific things, great for a beginner. I’m just starting the grid portion and am hard at work on the echo zigzag, AAAAARGH!!! I wanted to add a photo, but doesn’t seem to be an option here…

  11. Okay, I got to Flickr and managed to upload two (awful) photos…but I find Flickr VERY user-unfriendly, and to me, it’s not worth the frustration. Maybe it’s just me, but can’t you have us posting photos on your site? My Craftsy instructors have all done that.

  23. I am trying to find the half square triangle quilt-a-long. There were certain patterns done in the triangle sections of the squares. I really wanted to do this one, but couldn’t at the time. It is still here somewhere? Thanks.

  24. I happened upon your blog via Quilt Along.net. What a treasure! With only 3 finished quilts to my name I’ve decided to try FMQ. Your photos and explanations are just what I need. Thank you.

We'd LOVE to hear! Please reply...
