    What if I have a Pfaff machine with a the metal and magnet hoop. Can I still use the monster block system?

    The instructions still don’t state when/how to add piece #1 – the back of the block.

    Susan, after all blocks have been made and pieced together, the quilt back will be added as one entire piece.

    According to the FAQs regarding the Celebration Quilt BOM in the January/February 2019 issue, in addition to the digital files for cutting machines, PDF patterns are also provided to cut patches with a rotary cutter. However, the only PDF I could find was the yardage requirements for each fabric with miniature block parts. Please advise.
