    Can we purchase just a second kit with fabric and no pattern (since got pattern with the first kit)?

    I love the fabrics in my kit! Can I cut my fabric now, or should I wait for the class with Diane on the 19th? Are there any corrections to the cutting guide?

      Hi Melanie, this is Diane Harris. It is fine to go ahead and cut now if you like! Be sure to correctly identify each fabric, matching it with its color name in the pattern. And as you cut, be sure to label each pile of patches with their color name and letter. This will help you SO MUCH later on! I can't wait to watch your progress. Did you get the summer color or the autumn version?

    I received my Summer Splash kit- so beautiful! I generally prefer to wash fabric for a new project. Is there any reason you would not recommend this?

      Hi Kathy, this is Diane Harris. I think it would be okay to prewash the fabrics, though honestly it's no longer necessary. Back in the 80s and 90s, I washed everything but it seems that fabrics are more colorfast now, and if you do not wash, you have a little more "body" to work with. I think you'll have better results if you don't prewash, but that's just one opinion!

    Hey quilting friends! This is Diane Harris, designer of Summer Splash. Just wanted to say hello to everyone who is making this little sampler quilt. I'm looking forward to teaching the classes that will walk you through the trickiest parts of the quilt--although really, it's all quite doable! I'll check in here often to see if there are questions. See you on July 19 for the first mini workshop!

      Not a question, but wanted to share the Kona solids I picked out today for the summer version. Excited to start work on this great design!

        Carole, Your kona solids will make a beautiful quilt. Not sure if I am going to join in on this project
        or not. If I do, I might go with blues and teals, water colors and water motif fabrics since it is called
        Summer Splash!!! HelenW
