  4. Hi Cheryl, I have the sneak peek, don't want to give it away, confused where the fabric B 4" squares fit in. I am using multiple colors for B. Thanks!

  5. New to your mysteries and have a question. Is the cutting instructions posted for the whole quilt or will there be more cutting in another month. Thinking I may want to double the quilt size and wondering if I should cut double the pieces listed in this months instructions. Want to ensure I have enough fabric! Thanks for sharing your time and talent with other quilters.

  6. Thanks! I think I will cut the strips and then subcut as needed, as I tend to misplace things and forget what they are for!

  7. So glad I got in on this in time! Got my fabric Saturday, and I'm ready to start cutting, but I am wondering (like Laura Mitchell) which fabrics A, B, or C can we cut using different fabrics to make it scrappy?
