    I am just about done with the first skyscraper and need a small bit of fabric of fabric to finish the small side of One World. Does anyone have enough of the medium blue they can sell or donate to me? I would be ever so grateful. The thoughts of starting all over is overwhelming at this point. Nearing the end is a good feeling too. Thanks all. Eileen

        Eileen is looking for a bit of Color #2 to finish One World. I thought I had some but have none. My kit was only 1/4 yard cuts and that wasn't enough so I upped the kit cuts to 1/3 yards.

        If you can help Eileen, please post here and email her: [email protected] dot net

        Thanks!

          Thanks to Barbara supplying the fabric numbers, I found the fabric at a shop in NY, (I am in NJ), so it should be here hopefully in another day. Yay! Thank you Barbara! Progress is great!

            I watched this video can’t find the ones after that? Why were the videos not posted in the same way as all the others? I feel like the final two months were just given out with no videos, very disappointed with the end of this BOM don’t like that the format for information was changed. I’m now struggling to try and fit together my quilt.

          Hi there, I think there is an error with the cutting size of piece m in block 12, the Centrepoint Tower. Instructions say cut 2 pieces @ 4.5 x 4.5...each piece itself is 5.25 inches tall on the print out. I've checked my 1 inch block guide on my print out and it is correct. Has the pattern been amended or am I wrong and just can't figure it out? TIA

            That size fits the pattern. Cut them larger if you prefer.

          A video would only be valuable if it showed something. I am not making a second one of these just to show assembly. No one else had their quilt ready for assembly by late November when a video would have had to be created.

          The detailed blog on Assembly provides a lot of information. Perhaps you missed that:

          The LIVE from November 19 is available where all the LIVEs are, on the first page of the 2021 BOM patterns under LEARN.

            I need some advise. I had my inner circle set on the floor while I was stay-stitching my outer circle. My washing machine sprung a leak and flooded the floor with my circle under 1/2 inch of water before I discovered it. When all is over, some of the dye has run. Should I try to see if it will come out now, or wait till it is quilted and I wash entire quilt?
