  1. Hi Lisa. Love the SAL and have been following along. One small hiccup, when I click on the link for Block 9 above, I get the instructions for Block 8.

  2. On the Web blog page where you see click here to print Block #9 it does have the #9 and not 8

  3. Thank you for sharing the quilt pattern of flags with all of us. I have enjoyed making them with you on you tube. I hope it raises a lot of money for the Vets. I watch you on you tube all the time. Thank you for being there.

  4. I have no computer, or know how to use one. I would buy a printed pattern for the blocks. Is that possible. I can use phone in a limited way. Got help to send this message. Thank you. Hv ?email, but can only erase after i see/read what gets there.
