I was thrilled to see this as I was in Sarah's Definition of Stitch class and I am the lady standing behind her looking on. Some of crossed the hall to see Sarah's quilts hanging up. The students produced some fantastic work and I was on a very friendly table and swapped fabric with one of the group. Later Sarah stayed at my house when she taught workshops in the UK and she was a perfect guest. A great person.

I tried to watch show #2004 during the free quilt weekend and the site would not let me. You advertise free access and then it is not there. Very disappointed.

Amy mentions the patterns are available. I've looked on her shop website and don't see the one I want which had the mini churn dash or maybe there isn't one for this. What size are the blocks?
