Video not loading/playing.
I have a new iPad mini & have tried to watch your 'free' videos for many weeks with no success. I get "...video loading.." Then nothing. I thought maybe to give it some time for my 'computer' to load, but no luck. I have a digital subscription which works fine, but, again, no video. Assistance please!
Ruler ordered
I ordered my ruler about 3 weeks ago after watching Mary Ann demonstrate on their show. Can't wait to try it. Hope it comes soon.
printed instructions
Is are the instructions in print form? Or did it appear in one of the magazines, if so which issue. thanks

I had looked at this pattern and didn't feel it was something I wanted to do. But, after watching the video lesson, I definitely want to do it since you can use so many color schemes. Thanks for the video.

I can't wait for my next quilt to use this border on. Probably a quilt for a kid.
Ideal idea for Border
Super video. Thanks for sharing this pattern. I love the F&P Hexagon ruler. From now on, I'm using this idea as a border for my scrappy quilts.
