  1. Cheryl, thank you for designing another wonderful mystery quilt. I have one question. I am not very saavy on the computer and cannot figure how to print the directions. I see where there are directions for the diagonal blocks, but the color chips above are not on there. Sorry to be so much trouble, but I'm sure its something simple I just haven't figured out how to do. Thanks again

  2. Thanks, Cheryl. I appreciate all the work you have put into this mystery.

  3. Awesome!! Looking forward to seeing it all coming together!

  4. Thank you Cheryl, for sharing your talents with us. I appreciate your hard work and generosity with this and all your previous mysteries. I am a fan.
    also, I had to peek.... :)

  5. A fun block to make. It's been a fun mystery, thank you for offering one this year.
