  1. Excited to do this Sal, but I’m confused. The blog post say cutting instructions are in the book, but the book is for the entire quilt. How do we know what to cut for the specific weekly sal?

    1. Hi Takia!

      The cutting instructions for each block are in the book, but the specifics for how much to do each week will be released on the supply page weekly! More details to come on this quilt along later this week! 🙂

    1. Hi Lorna!

      Great question! Yes, the book is needed as it has all the block cutting and assembly directions. The cutting guide tells how many of each block and it’s units you’ll need for the sampler quilt, but not how to cut or piece.

      Hope this helps 🙂

    1. Hi Diana!

      When you starch your Jelly Rolls is up to you. If you want to do them all before the livestream where Kimberly is sewing the first block or if you just to do some each week as you sew you can do whatever you wish. You also don’t have to starch if you don’t want to 🙂

  2. What background fabric was used for the Bee Dots version? My guess is Bee Dots Lettuce Thelma Yardage SKU# C14182-LETTUCE


    1. Hi Annette!

      This took me some time to find the answer, so thank you so much for your patience! The background used was SKU# C120398-Pebble!

  3. I know this is about jelly rolls. I know they are 40-42 width of fabric. But I have a fat quarter pack. Are there any blocks that take the full 42 inches. I could cut the fat quarter in 2 1/2 strips. Will that work??

    1. You can absolutely join without Instagram. You can just sew along to the schedule provided or at your own pace!
