Hi Karen Thanks so much for your feedback. I get the point about the email sign up pop ups! I am moving my Mystery Quilter domain over to point to the Quilt with Sheila website so now I have removed the pop up from the blog. You should have received a needs list by now but I have included it with this email. The patterns for each block will be coming out during the quiltalong. I also understand your not wishing to join facebook. One of my reasons for creating the new platform is that I can teach the online classes in the membership without using social media platforms, and our community is completely private inside the website. I will definitely look into posting the free quiltalong videos either on YouTube or in a free area of the website. In the meantime I have update the Quilt Party membership information, here is the link to the new page https://www.quiltwithsheila.com/join-the-party Best wishes Sheila Sheila Christensen @mysteryquilter www.mysteryquilter.com

Hi Lydia Yes the ruler lines are incorrect. The strip width is correct, 2". For the small trapezoid the ruler line should be 3 1/2" For the large trapezoid the ruler line should be 5" I will post this on the blog for future reference, thanks! Sheila

I am stitching this free pattern up with a combination of Eleganza and Razzle perle 8 and Glamore 12 weight from Wonderfil threads. These are great threads to use as they stitch so nicely and don't have to be separated into strands. The background is Manchester cotton from Robert Kaufman, which has a great texture.
