Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have access to the course?

The instructions will be released monthly on the first of each month, starting March 2019, through November 2019. Once the instructions for the month are given, they will remain visible. So don't worry about getting behind - I know life happens! Also, the whole course will remain available for another year, until December of 2020, so you will be able to refer to the instructions and FINISH your beautiful quilt!

I have questions about the quilt instructions, where can I get help?

Please ask your questions in the Comments for that month. That way everyone can see the answers - someone else might have the same question you do! And check through the comments and questions already in the forum. The answer may be right there waiting for you!
