Thanks, Alex. I'm excited about this quilt. I think I will learn a lot and have a beautiful piece of art when it's complete.

Jeannie came back on Friday and lasted about 4 hours......we sent her home. Not to worry - EVERYONE will be getting a supplemental kit - paper piecing or not. And if you need more after that we have reserved some extra bolts to take care of everyone - this quilt is worth the effort and we will make sure you have everything you need.

Because several staff members are dealing with the flu, they are a little behind, but they are working on the shortage and you will be contacted.
They will make it right.

Thank you for coming through with more fabric. Do I have to do anything besides my post about my fabric shortage to get the supplemental package? I bought the kit, so do you need more information than you already have? Thanks again, Carol

Alex, thank you for this. I had my kit sent to a different address than my home address. Is there anything I need to do to make sure the additional fabric is sent to the address the kit was sent to? That's what I want as long as it is sent out in the next couple of months. We will be at the current (non home address) for that long. Thanks for any information you can give me on this.

Alex, thank you! This is good news. Thanks to ARJJ for doing this. It will give those of us who want to paper piece the opportunity to do so.

Fortunately all the fabrics are available - we will be sending out supplemental kits to makeup for any shortage - there will also be enough to paper piece if you so want. It is going to take a little time to get it all together - but we have your back! :D IMPORTANT: Do not toss any scraps away - they will be used for the applique

Hey Everyone - First off, we at ARJJ consider you all family and appreciate your willingness to play and hang out at TQS. We are super aware that there are some issues going on and I want to personally reassure you that we will take care of things.

After reading everyone's posts, I think I will not prewash my fabric. I got my kit today in the mail and hope to start on it this next week.

I just ironed my prewashed fabric from the kit and I also have had some shrinkage and am a little short, but feel reassured that TQS is aware of this issue. (Thanks Margo and Alex). I want to say that I am still super enthused about this quilt. The fabrics in the kit are even prettier and brighter than the photo and I choose to do the kit because the colors are not my "norm" and yet the quilt feels traditional to me. I'm sure everthing will get worked out with the kits and I'm cutting mine up some of mine right now!
