Let's hope so. Month 2 is still confusing.

I'm not sure, but I think that this problem has been addressed and shouldn't be an issue in future months.

It would be helpful if everywhere a fabric was referred to, the reference would be the same. Example, the color swatches in the fabric requirements (introduction, published in December 2012) identify the orange print (ESSE 4630)as yel/orange leaves. Month one directions refer to this as "gold frond fabric." Margo refers to it as the "gold"fabric in her video. Anyone confused yet? Okay, maybe I am quibbling here, as I am not even using this color scheme, but reading through the directions each month before cutting fabric, it is a bit disconcerting trying to figure out what fabric is being referred to. Suggestion, use the color number (ESSE 4630, etc.) in parentheses after the color description (orange yel/orange leaves, fronds, whatever) in the directions - or at least after the first time the fabric is mentioned in the direction each month. The folks using the fabric kits don't have much wiggle room, at least from what can be deduced reading the forum comments, and could easily cut the wrong fabric.

Margo, Your videos were excellent and answered a lot of my questions. Starting to put this all into perspective. I'm always always a little "slow out of the gate" but eventually catch up.

Jack & Jill were the first English book characters I met when I moved to Canada... Simple j&j phrases were used to teach me English, along with the sears catalogue where my brother and I had to cut out pictures, paste them into a huge scrapbook, write down the English word for it, and how it sounded to us, and then learn all the new words overnight... Worked very well, graduated to Charlotte's Web within a few months ;)

Thank you, Margo! I'm not going to use the kit, but when I figure out my colors and fabrics, this will be so helpful to get the right amounts of fabric!

Also, a BIG thank you for those videos on the paper piecing. It was great to see your face and hear your voice.
