    Hi, I am in Australia and it seems you cannot post to Australia.
    I have bought the pattern in a pdf
    can you list the fabrics so I may be able to find them or similar or post a picture of the fabrics

      Julie, I noticed you did not get a response yet so if you want to do it the hard way, I got the description of the fabrics and
      a picture of the bundle from the store area. It says 16 neutral fat quarters from Art Gallery, Free Spirit, Robert Kaufman, and Windham Fabrics. Then 5.5 yards of background fabrics, 4 different fabrics. from Andover, Moda, and Robert Kaufman.
      You might be able to type the manufactures names into Google Search and track them down from the photo. or find
      something similar. If you want to wait, they will probably provide you info before the classes start. Pretty quilt. HelenW

          The pattern is now on the site under learn, Alex's class, Neural Blooms Class, documents; I think, or close thereof.

        Elizabeth P . The pattern is found under the “SHOP products” tab. Then, select Neutral Blooms heading, and you will see the fabric bundle and two pattern options to purchase (print copy and digital download).

          First post, not sure if I am doing this right. I bought the kit and added my stash to it. my questions is:
          how many petals of each and is there a value for petals verses centers? going on a trip wanted to work on cutting petals and centers during it.

        Were any of the fabrics provided in the kit intended to be used as the binding?

          Not really, I ended up piecing my binding - it looks great!

          Thanks, Alex! I hadn’t thought of that. I think I will do the same.

        The Kit description says there is enough fabric for a pieced binding. Use the leftovers for the binding.

          I am using my own stash for the small blocks in neutral blooms, but want to buy the grunge solid and grunge dots for the background. What color number are they? There are several shades of neutral grunge- some are gray toned and some ivory toned.

              I have completed my first pieced row. All the four patch blocks were the right size and once the triangles are added I have a proper 1/4 inch seam allowance but my row is not the right size. It ended up 6.25 x 46.5 instead of 6 1/8 x 45 3/4. I don't know what I did wrong as my 1/4 seam is accurate too but hopefully I can just adjust the applique rows and it will go together. Any advice?

                Lovely. How did you press the joining seams between the pieced blocks? I'm having a problem getting them flat.

              Deborah W, Your first pieced strip is beautiful. Loved that I could see the whole strip by clicking on it and then zoom it. Not sure
              what went a little off but you could take a piece of clear page protector and draw the finished center squares to size and the
              triangles at the angle they attach to make a unit. Then lay that on top of each one to see if there is any that are a little off.
              You said you checked your seam allowance, be sure you look at both sides of the seam allowance. Some times the one you
              can't see after pressing is too small making the finished unit a tad bit bigger than it should be. If you have the clear template,
              as you make each unit you can check it on the next row. If you can't find the problem, I would wait until you make the other
              ones to see if they come out the same, or different. You might need to do a little restructuring on both ends of the row to get
              them all the same. I am thinking the background fabric in a piece that makes them all the same length. Might be able to do
              it just on the bottoms, or if too noticeable, divided it in half and do on top and bottom. These are just ideas that came to mind
              when I looked at your question. Looks like it will be a beautiful quilt. HelenW

                  Hi Deborah, the length and width of my rows didn't come out exactly to the 6 1/8 x 45 3/4 either. Mine are 6 1/4 x 46 1/2. Luckily I didn't cut my sashing ahead of time so was able to cut the sashing to match the length of my rows.
