I don't really know! I was not part of the instructions this year, and I don't know how much was added as a fudge factor, but if you are careful cutting your pieces for paper piecing, with just a 3/8" seam allowance, I think you should be OK. ARJJ has also ordered some extra bolts of fabric and you can order some extra from them if you run short.

Is there adequate fabric in the new kits to do the paperpiecing?

Gayle, the first kits that were shipped were skimpy on the fabric yardage, and those customers were sent some additional fabric.
The more recent shipments have more yardage so you should be fine.

Cena, I'm there with you. The first set I got 30 out of it. The second set only 26.

I'm glad to hear that they will be sending us additional fabric. I just started piecing today and came up short. (27 vs. 30 per set). I knew there was a problem when I washed and ironed my fabric and could only salvage 17 1/2" cuts from the turquoise dot.

I came to the blog for the first time and found that I was not the only one! I was considering making a smaller quilt, but I found you all were ahead of me on that one too. :D

If we are going to receive more fabric, will we run into a dye lot problem?


Janie, I asked Alex about that and she said:

not a problem - they are closing out the solids - same dye lots

Yes, Janie. Use the yel/orange print.

In the directions for the sahing the strip between the two units is called "gold frond". I purchased the kit, and in the key for the fabrics, I don't see gold listed. Is this the yellow/orage leaves(ESSE 4630)?

Beth, ARJJ is aware that there is an issue with the yardage in the kits and they are working to resolve it. Please stay tuned for more information.
Since you bought the kit, they are going to make it right for you and you will not be required to purchase more fabric.
Watch for an announcement on the Daily Blog and in the forum when the details are worked out.

I am so sorry for your frustration and inconvenience.
