Stranger things have happened uploading patterns when I’ve added patterns at Craftsy before. Tonight I was uploading blocks 13 and 14 and when I finished I couldn’t find where block 13 was. It shows up as a pattern in my own account’s pattern page, but it isn’t showing up in the quilt store for my profile or on the quilting page. So I’m not sure what’s happening in that respect. You can add it to your cart, but you can’t check out even. So I’ve also added them to Payhip for you tonight so that if your in a hurry to get started you can go ahead and purchase them. Please remember Payhip does cost a little bit more for patterns because I have two commissions that get paid from Payhip, one to Paypal, and one to Payhip.
Here are the links for this months blocks…
Today’s release is Twas The Night Before Christmas Blocks 11 and 12 and I’m also releasing Cupcake Of The Month – May… Shocking I know that I could be so early on a block not really due before the 15th of May, but May is a very busy month for me, so I’m releasing it today to have it … out of the way I guess you could say. 🙂
Blocks 11 and 12 were actually uploaded Saturday night to Craftsy, but because I don’t like posting on weekends, I simply announced it in the Facebook groups for Seams To Be Sew and decided to post today about the release.
The Cupcake of the Month for May is a free block pattern. I’ve made it available on Continue reading
I wanted to post a little note real quick today. 30 Blocks In 30 Days started yesterday, my day for this hop is April 20th, and I’ve got a great giveaway for you that day also. You will want to be sure you stop in and enter it that day.
In the meantime I’m posting the full schedule for you, it started yesterday, but ya’ll know how I feel about posting on weekends, I only do it when really really necessary.
I’ve also updated the 2018 BOTM page with some new botms and qals. Continue reading
Its been a busy week for me, how about you? I spent last week trying to get this pattern written up, it really doesn’t seem like it would be that complicated, but I added some additional shape keys in each of the embroidery shapes so it might be easier to tell which shapes are the actual embroidery shapes for those of you who are doing hand embroidery. I liked this so much I will go back and do it to the other 9 patterns so far in this series as I do believe it makes it easier for you to know those shapes. These patterns have so many especially small shapes I think it really needs to be done.
There are some changes to the block of the month 2018 page also. Continue reading
I have released the next cupcake for you today.
I also have released a fun new quilt pattern for Mardi Gras, those lucky enough to get to go to Mardi Gras you may enjoy this quilt you can make as a fond remembrance of your trip. I’ve always wanted to go to Mardi Gras.
With Twas The Night, I was working on finishing up the pattern when I realized I was working on the wrong block… uggghhh!!! The pattern I showed you as a preview last month is actually release Block 11, so, I’m quickly working on block 10 to get it finished up so I can release block 11. My apologies for that, I would go ahead and release it, but I don’t want anyone to get confused with the block order so am going to hold on it till I release block 10.
In other news, I have a poll on this post, I really need your input on your preference for free downloads. I just don’t get why downloading a free pattern is so difficult for some and not a problem for others. I know my preference is to simply go back to Payhip, I had a lot fewer issues with it, but at the same time, I’m not understanding how the cart is giving people issues also.
I have finally settled on a plan for how I’ll do the Cupcake of the Month series.
Sorry, everyone, I was determined to get the TTNBC Block 09 pattern released the other day then got stuck at the car repair all day on Tuesday. I sat there waiting for my car to be fixed and ended up getting a rental car until the next day.
Either or, I worked on it all day yesterday to finish and finally got it done. In the meantime, I did upload the Continuous Line patterns to the bundles each day for those of you who purchased the bundle, if you haven’t downloaded them since you purchased you may want to go and do that. The last 2 patterns will be released tomorrow and Monday for the bundles, and Monday will be the last day for the free patterns on my blog along with my project for Island Batik.
So, let’s get down to the nitty and the gritty…
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
gave the lustre of midday to objects below, is block 08 of Twas The Night Before Christmas. Isn’t it a beautiful block?
Much like the first block in some ways but I love the night sky, the snow falling, and the additional trees that the artist added to the block. I do not think it was easy for him to come up with artwork for the lines in this part of the story.
This is the Flickr Reward block.
