    Just to let you know the PDF that you made of the instructions is not leaving your words where you want them to be. The pictures are fine, but the words are bunched up. I’m not complaining, I understand what needs to go where, just thought I would let you know.

    Today is my birthday and my family asked what I wanted. I asked for a day in my sewing room with no interuptions. My husband said I could have the whole day except lunch since he was taking a couple of hours off work to take me to my favorite Cuban resturant. Yeah me! 🙂

    Judy, I’ve selected my backing and tonight I’ll be busy pulling the rest of the fabrics. Tomorow is my bi weekly OFF Friday so I’ll catch up in no time. Sandi

    I’m wondering about your fabric numbers. In step 3, you instruct to cut 58
    2 1/2″ squares of fabric #3 (green), but your illustration shows fabric #2 (orange) — ????

    I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. The print friendly pages for both this and step 4 won’t load at all.

    I tried again, using my laptop and they finally loaded as they were supposed to. Don’t know why 3 & 4 wouldn’t work on my desktop computer as the previous files opened and I was able to get the PDFs just fine.
