It’s time for Quilt Block Mania again for August 2020. This month’s theme is Back To School and there are many absolutely fabulous blocks to download for your fun piecing delight.
All the blocks are 12-inch blocks and range from pieced, to applique, to even paper piecing and other techniques.
Most downloads are available all month long and some designs will keep their patterns free forever. Some of them will make you go thru a cart (such as mine), and others will make you sign up for a newsletter to get your block.
So have a peek inside and see my block, and everyone else’s. Clicking the image links will open directly to those web pages for the patterns and my pattern image will take you to the shopping cart.
So, today is my day on the Fabulous Freebees blog hop, hosted by my friend Joan at MooseStash Quilting. You’d never guess this was the first hop she’s hosted, she’s been great at getting it organized and keeping us all apprised of the happenings of the hop. Thanks, Joan for hosting this very fun hop.
Free patterns are really everywhere on the web. I’ve heard more than once that we are inundated with them. Frankly, who doesn’t love a free pattern? I can’t tell you I don’t, because I do. I’ve even been known to offer a few free patterns myself every now and again. I have no problem buying a pattern I like, but free ones are always nice also.
I didn’t create one of my own patterns, as I’ve been wanting to do this one for a while.
Today, my project is along the lines of Christmas once again. If you remember last month I said it was going to be my goal to create something for everyone this year for Christmas and I’m still working on that goal, so here is my project…
I didn’t get a post created yesterday. I was so busy trying to finish up Sam and Sam for a release that I simply forgot to get the post written, so today I’ll do three of the giveaways and do another three tomorrow or Saturday…
In the meantime, some silly chitchat on website stuff… I have now secured my site to an https address. Please check the address and see if it will open for you in an https environment. I want everyone to be able to view my blog, so it was a necessary change that I’ve been putting off doing for quite some time. Thank you to Pat for writing me about the error she was receiving. It made me get off my duff and make the switch. You can actually view the blog without the https environment, but if you want the security that https brings, you might like to make the switch yourself.
And then their were 8 days of Christmas…
Janeen from Quilt Art and I have teamed up to bring you a special event of giveaways. We’ve each created 12 patterns to giveaway over the next 8 days. Four days have passed. I hope you didn’t miss the tree from yesterday or Janeen’s extremely cute penguin. If you missed mine, you can still pick it up in my Payhip or Craftsy shop as it will be available as a single till the end of the year.
Thru November 30th in my Payhip Shop only, All patterns are 25% off.

Welcome to the last day of Oh Holy Night. It’s been a wonderful experience bringing this series to you each week.
I appreciate your patience during the few weeks I had to delay because of other obligations, but I think it’s been worth the wait.
Oh Holy Night is my second BOM Finish since opening my blog in 2013.
Perhaps you remember my ghoulish hand from Wicked 3 in 2013.
Last year I added it to my wallhanging for the Black Cat Blog Hop..
Many of you have requested this pattern over the years, and I have finally released it as a quilt pattern.
Have you ever hummed a song in your head, and thought about different things while humming it.. For some reason, the song “Danny Boy” is in my head today, but I’m thinking about Halloween….
I wanted to share something to get you in a Halloween frame of mind and yes I know it’s still over seven weeks away, but.. this gives you enough time to do something with it.
Ghost On The Edge 1 is Free until September 14, 2015

You can see these in a project from when I participated in the
